30 years of Saturday Night Live
Live from New York. It’s Saturday Night!
The Saturday Night Live cast first took the stage 30 years ago today, and the show became an American icon of anti-establishment television. George Carlin guest-hosted the opening show, created and produced by Lorne Michaels and starring the original team of comedians: Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner and Garrett Morris.
Our Queen of Pop became a regular guest star of the show through the years displaying her talent for commedy in several funny skits such as “La fabulosa Marika” in 1985 with Robert Downey Jr, the “Justify My Love parody” in Wayne’s World, and the coffee table talk with Roseanne Barr and Barbra Streisand.
SNL also presented some unique live renditions of Madonna‘s songs such as Bad Girl, from the Erotica album, performed live only once on this show in 1993.
