Saturday Night Live (SNL) is a late-night television sketch comedy and variety show developed by Lorne Michaels and Dick Ebersol. It premiered on NBC, a terrestrial television network in the United States, on October 11, 1975, under the title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's sketches often parody contemporary American popular culture and politics. Saturday Night Live features a two-tiered cast consisting of veteran repertory members, also called the "Not Ready For Prime Time Players" (the name used by the show's original cast), and newer cast members who are known as "Featured Players." Each week, the show features a host who delivers an opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast. A musical guest is also invited to perform. With the exception of season 7, the show has begun with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
Jason Sudeikis, the voice of Holt and Terry Kimple, is a current SNL cast member. Even though they weren't named, Fred Armisen (green shirt and glasses), Andy Samberg (far right with dark red shirt), Kristen Wiig, as Gilly, a character from an SNL skit series (big afro girl), and Kenan Thompson (as the only African-American in the cast at the time of initial airing), are all identifiable.
