Description

When first published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, Live from New York was immediately proclaimed the best book ever produced on the landmark and legendary late-night show. In their own words, unfiltered and uncensored, a dazzling galaxy of trail-blazing talents recalled three turbulent decades of on-camera antics and off-camera escapades. Now a fourth decade has passed - and best-selling authors James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales have returned to Studio 8H. They raucously and revealingly take the SNL story up to the present, adding a constellation of iconic new stars, surprises, and controversies.

It's hard to keep up with who's who bc same voices

It's hard to keep up with who's who bc same 2 voices for everyone. I had to rewind often to verify whose story it was. Great story, but just having 2 peopke and not the persons, themselves made it harder to follow. Great stories, though.

Great Read!

If your an SNL fan this is a must. It’s a nice deep dive into the world of SNL. It’s an emotional journey to say the least. Thank you to the authors, narrators and all the cast that shared there experiences in this book.

Very Meh lol. Performances are cringe-worthy, get ready

It’s dense, only for obsessives and Uber fans of SNL history and lore. More of a salacious, gossipy, behind-the-scenes look at SNL, rather than an objective and academic deep-dive. Seemed to be mostly based on interviews with satellite figures spilling the tee on their experiences, some juicy stories though I guess. Overall the stories are worthwhile, but the performances are pretty rough at times. They seemed to hire B-level voiceover artists, career narrators with a bit of personality and had them voicing these titans of comedy…. Which translated to very annoyingly desperate performances. There was one woman that I could not stand, just insufferable lol. Honestly, the narration kinda ruined it for me.

Fascinating book

This is my third time reading this book. The first two times were the original version, and with an actual hard copy. I loved it then and I love it now.

My takeaways for this version:
1. The updated material DELIGHTED me. They could make a version of this book every ten years and I’d buy it again. The inner workings of SNL never stop intriguing me.

2. My only issue with the reading of the book, and it is one that is hard to solve, is that each genders passage is read by the same voice. So if I miss the name intro, or forget whose name it was because a lot of these names hold little meaning until long into the book, the stories aren’t as valuable. And if I need to know who is saying what, I have to skip back how many seconds to hear their name introduces? It was so frustrating, and could only be fixed by having a different voice for each main character (implausible), or having the persons name be repeated at the end of the story/appear in screen.

All of the warts ... none of the charm.

If you have any affection for SNL at all, fair warning .. this book will pretty much cure you of that. It's just ugly.
