Top 101 Moments Of SNL

Jimi Hendrix - (i) inspired by photo by David Montgomery[EDIT - 5/15/08: To those of you arriving at this post searching for information about E!'s 101 Most Unforgettable SNL Moments, I know there isn't too much out there, including from E!. I found this which lists all the moments. What follows here is another more personal list of mine.]

We were watching the countdown on E! last night and it reminded me of how important comedians and comedy have been in shaping my outlook on life. From the zany Monty Python troop to the warmth of Bill Cosby, there've been tons of funny people through the years who have connected with and influenced what makes me laugh:

George Carlin
Steve Martin
John Belushi
Dan Aykroyd
Gilda Radner
Bill Murray
Lucille Ball
Mitch Hedberg
Burns & Allen
Fry & Laurie
Sid Caesar
Steve Carell
Charlie Chaplin
Bill Cosby
John Cleese
Chris Farley
David Spade
Jimmy Fallon
Tina Fey
Will Ferrell
Mel Brooks
Christopher Guest
Phil Hartman
Rowan & Martin
Tim Conway
Caroll Burnett
Harvey Corman
Andy Kaufman
Buster Keaton
Denis Leary
David Letterman
Conan O'Brien
Marx Brothers
Tracy Morgan
Bob Newhart
Trey Parker & Matt Stone
Carl Reiner
Molly Shannon

These are a bunch of the biggies for me. There are lots of comedic actors, but they don't fit in with this list, I don't think.

I've gotten all the paintings done for Primitive Kool. Now I've just got to frame and box'em! The Newport Nights show is going to be 2007/10/27. has more details. I'll do commissions of the ones that'll be in the show too, if you can't make it, or any other musician you'd want! I'm going to put a post of all 16 pieces together soon. For now:


and tell me who you'd add to my funny people list!
