The Women of SNL

Only if you avoided all social media and NBC (which is an actual possibility these days), would you have missed that this weekend was the 40th Anniversary of SNL. Glamour did a photoshoot/interview with the women who have been such a core part of the show. The pictures are amazing, but it’s worth reading the article for the embedded videos, even with the 15 second Geico commercials in front, especially for the last one where Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman talk about how Gilda Radner and Billy Murray used to crack them up. Who knew he went by Billy?? And boy does Radner’s absence feel palpable. She was such a presence that every time Curtin or Newman says her name, you can feel how much they still miss her. Hat tip to Ann-Gee for the link.
