    Easy choice. Kristen Wiig. One of the funniest human beings alive.

    Kristen Wiig is the best but I think the most underrated was Molly Shannon. Her Best of DVD is amazing. Amy and Tina are also up there and Ana Gasteyer I think is also really underrated

    Who do you think it is then Gucci??

    To answer the question, I feel like Gilda Radner was incredible, hilarious, sweet and just amazing. So I’ll vote for her

    They were/are all fabulous.  I agree with KyleBailey about Maya Rudolph, I would actually remove either Hooks or Oteri to get Rudolph in there.

    I voted Amy Poehler.  Just the tiniest of smidges of favor for her over Gilda Radner and Kristen Wiig.

    I so adore Gilda Radner’s work. I have to go with her. It’s a shame she died so young, she was just incredible.

    Maya, while fabulous on the show, was underused and treated unfairly in the end. She deserved better characters/spaces to develop and hone her talents

    I really hope The Maya Rudolph Show gets picked up as a regular thing (NBC is in talks last I heard) because it is definitly up her ally. Of course the first show was ok it could use some work but if that becomes the new hang out for the good SNL members that left the show since the show they left is a mess now

    I totally agree – this last season felt like one of the weakest in terms of the ensemble. I know they are probably going to grow, but they need one or two veterans of the show to anchor it – it was bad enough Kristen left, but then Bill, Fred and Jason also left, and there was a huge hole in the cast. The oldest castmembers are now Bobby Moynihan and Kenan Thompson, and they will probably leave after this upcoming season – or they stay for maximum three more seasons. They just don’t have a very strong castmember anymore – Taran Killam and Kate McKinnon are close, but it will take time and they are pretty much the reason I am still watching the show.

    My shark-jumping advice to Lorne Michaels is to at some point instead of looking for these bright young talents, go invite some slightly older comedians who are already sort-of established and have them join the cast, just like how Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest all joined the show in the 1980s.

    Well Kenan has express no interest in leaving in the near future. He said he wants to be the next Darrell Hammond and stay there for a long time and honestly, that is a great career move. He has never been able to hold a movie down. Bobby is my favorite he is the unsung hero of the show. Taran is really moving on up there. I think Kate McKinnon is highly overrated, she basicly plays the same character over and over. Vanessa Bayer is still pretty good but none of the new people are stand out. Jay Pharoah is also good

    I wasn’t around for Radner and Curtin, and picking from the rest of the list is as hard as it gets. But you can’t take any of this seriously if Maya Rudolph isn’t there, sorry. I would take Tina Fey off the list since she wasn’t in that many sketches and didn’t have to work as hard as everybody else (as a performer).
