Narration is very animated. Great inside info of the studio but only until Will Farrell era, hope a part 2 comes out.
Interesting book! I learned quite a lot. The theme of the book felt Black and female cast members talking candidly about the discrimination they faced and White, male cast members talking about how great everything was. The women are "insecure" and the Black actors as "not good fits for the show". This happens so many times throughout the book, across years; it is really sad. This book is an eye-opener and has definitely changed the way I feel about show. The narrators did a remarkably good job of imitating the voices (not perfect, but very impressive!). The format of the book is a series of quotes from cast members and other staff organized by SNL "era". It is not a researched non-fiction book.
For an old school SNL fan, this was very entertaining.
A must read if you’re a fan of the show and of comedy in general ... great inside info on the main players from the 70s up to the 2000s ...
Some really phenomenal stories. I really loved this one. Sometimes the narration was a little odd because it's numerous people telling stories for the people who worked on the show, and sometimes it was hard keeping track. But overall, definitely worth listening if you like Saturday Night Live.
Really good behind the scenes look at SNL. Great insight behind how the show has survived through so much change.
