Film Club Rule #912: Comedy is great any night of the week, but it’s especially funny on Saturday night.

Since its inception in October of 1975 and for over 42 years now, Saturday Night Live developed some of the greatest film stars in America. These are folks who’ve become household names: Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, Bill Murray, John Belushi, Will Farrell, Tina Fey, and so many more. Heather, Jeff, and Rusty take a look at some of the SNL spinoffs, some of the biggest films, and some of the best performances of former cast members over the years. As of 2014, films starring former SNL cast members had grossed over $110 billion. There’s a great article from FiveThirtyEight that tries to break down the most successful cast members using a variety of metrics.
