On this day 36 years ago, SNL broadcast its first episode ever!! In hindsight it's easy to see that that first show, which was hosted by George Carlin, with music by Janis Ian and Billy Preston, a performance by Andy Kaufman and a cast that included Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris, Laraine Newman, and Gilda Radner, was the start of something special.
In honor of SNL's "birthday" enjoy the first of George Carlin's monologues from that night. And make sure to check out the 1970's section in the SNL video archive to catch Carlin's 3 other monologues from that show. George Carlin! Four monologues! One show!
