Live from New York!

"It's America right now, whether you like it or not." It's almost time for the Tribeca Film Festival, where the "Saturday Night Live" documentary Live from New York! will kick things off right in the Big Apple where the iconic sketch comedy series is created. And with that comes the first trailer for the look back at the legacy of the show that has shaped and continues to influence pop culture and comedy as we know it. There's plenty of behind the scenes footage, sketch clips and talking heads from the likes of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, John Goodman and many more. As a huge "SNL" fan, this is a doc I cannot wait to see. Watch!

Here's the trailer for Bao Nguyen's Live from New York!, originally from Yahoo:

Live from New York!

Live from New York! is a documentary directed by Bao Nguyen. The film explores the early years of the sketch comedy program "Saturday Night Live" and features archival footage, stolen moments and exclusive commentary from series creator and showrunner Lorne Michaels as well as "SNL" legends, journalists, hosts and crew including but not limited to Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, John Goodman, Tina Fey, Candice Bergen, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler and Alec Baldwin. The film is slated to premiere in April at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, and is now set for a limited theatrical release on June 12th this summer. Cool?

    Seems alright. I personally have not watched SNL for near a decade.
  • Can't wait to see this!
  • I've only got to see little bits and pieces of SNL, the newer stuff is a bit cringey. But some of the older stuff is really funny.
