Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels once characterized SNL as "a show for the generation that grew up on television". Over the course of twenty successful years, SNL has become the television phenomenon of our time. Here is the book that captures it all. Saturday Night Live: The First Twenty Years, the official book commemorating the show's twentieth anniversary, is a lively, jampacked look at the first twenty years of the show through the voices and memories of those who made it happen - both in front of and behind the camera. Filled with more than five hundred photographs taken by the show's own photographers, it gathers favorite characters, unforgettable sketches, and unexpected moments in rich detail. Since it debuted on October 11, 1975, and through more than 350 subsequent shows, SNL has been the breeding ground and showcase for a wide variety of extraordinary talent, including Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, Phil Hartman, Jan Hooks, and Dana Carvey, to name a few.
