SNL Throwback Of The Week #11, 4/24/2010

I am a huge Saturday Night Live fan. One of my earliest memories was of my parents watching SNL every Saturday while we were tucked in our bedrooms, and sometimes being allowed to watch for a bit. The show has gone through its ups and downs over its 35 year run, but the fact that it is still on the air after 35 years is a testament to the staying power of the show. Lorne Michaels is a genius at finding and developing young, comedic talent. SNL has produced a bevy of stars over the years, from Eddie Murphy to Tina Fey. The show is doing well again thanks to Ms. Fey and the rest of the team, but I love watching clips from the old shows. Every Saturday I will give you guys one of my favorites. This weeks clip features Dana Carvey as Head Wound Harry... yeah, I said that right, Head Wound Harry. Harry has had an unfortunate accident, but still manages to show up to his friend shindig... he isn't gonna miss this party for nothing!!! Watch how the guest with the gaping hole in his skull finds a way to make everybody at the party uncomfortable. Dana Carvey is so underrated and underappreciated for his time on SNL. He was hysterical. Hope you guys enjoy... Live, from my living room, it's Saturday Night!!!
