Thoughts?July 11, 2014 at 9:12 pm #548566
Easy choice. Kristen Wiig. One of the funniest human beings alive.July 11, 2014 at 11:23 pm #548567
None Of The Above.July 11, 2014 at 11:32 pm #548568
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 underratedJuly 12, 2014 at 9:06 am #548570
Easy easy, Gilda Radner. My top 10:
Rachel DratchJuly 12, 2014 at 11:03 am #548571
I would also add Maya Rudolph to my list.July 12, 2014 at 5:44 pm #548572
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.July 14, 2014 at 9:00 am #548573
Amy, Tina, Molly, and Kristen are just so amazing but I had to go with AmyJuly 14, 2014 at 3:33 pm #548574
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.July 16, 2014 at 12:32 am #548576
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 nowJuly 16, 2014 at 12:53 am #548577

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.July 16, 2014 at 10:33 am #548578
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 goodJuly 22, 2014 at 6:14 am #548579
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).
