As a devoted Saturday Night Live fan, I’ve probably seen almost every episode since 1987. In tribute to my favorite show I thought I’d put this definitive list together. This is THE LIST of the top ten characters of all time. There are no others. Don’t even bother debating it.
10. Hanz and Franz
Millions of Arnold Schwarzeneggar impersonations owe their lives to Hanz and Franz
9. Stuart Smalley
People are still saying it.
8. Celebrity Jeopardy
Will Ferrell plays the straight man and Darrell Hammond gets all the laughs
7. Church Lady
Dana Carvey saves SNL from permanent cancellation, isn’t that special.
6. Samurai warrior
The first reoccuring character belongs to John Belushi
5. Coffee Talk
Mike Myers imitates his mother-in-law and it’s like buhta.
4. George and Yortunk Festrund
Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd deliver the first SNL catch phrase that caught national attention.
This character made Eddie Murphy a star.
2. Wayne’s World
I will always love Mike Myers for this.
1. Matt Foley
Chris Farley at his very best
