American Institution. Cultural Phenomenon. Perfectly Absurd. 40 Years And Counting…
‘Saturday Night Live’ has been reflecting and influencing the American Story for 40 years. LIVE FROM NEW YORK! explores the show’s early years, an experiment from a young Lorne Michaels and his cast of unknowns, and follows its evolution into a comedy institution. The film looks at SNL as a living time capsule, encompassing decades of American politics, media, tragedy, and popular culture with an irreverent edge.
Archival footage is interwoven with stolen moments and exclusive commentary from SNL legends, journalists, hosts, musical guests, crew and others influenced by the comedy giant. The documentary features pretty much everyone from the SNL roster you’d expect, including Dan Akroyd, Alec Baldwin, James Belushi, Candice Bergen, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Jimmy Fallon, and many more.
