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 official trailer for Bao Nguyen's doc Live from New York!, originally from Yahoo:

Live from New York!

Seems alright. I personally have not watched SNL for near a decade.

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.
