Summary
A seriously funny, offbeat and irreverent memoir that chronicles the early days of Saturday Night Live and features some of its greatest personalities--Al Franken, Lorne Michaels, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Michael O'Donoghue, and Chris Farley. Written by Tom Davis, an original SNL writer and comedy partner of Al Franken, this is the story of coming of age in the 60s, and an account of the birth and rise of Saturday Night Live. Davis' memoir is filled with wry, candid anecdotes about his days at Saturday Night Live, but it also the story of Davis' own coming of age--escaping his conservative roots in suburban Minneapolis, traveling the world, and reveling in the hippie culture of 1960s San Francisco. The author finds the highs and lows of his own career to be a hilarious counterpoint to the meteoric rise of SNL and his friends' growing celebrity.--From publisher description
