The tough decisions need to be made. We have narrowed the field down to five from the 95 cast members in the history of SNL. There is no more multiple choice. There can be only one

Finally, a poll not even the idiots of ChiefsPlanet should be able to fuck up.

Yeah, I think the only reason Hartman comes out on top for me is because he was the complete package. He could play goofy, he could play characters, he could do slapstick, he could do supporting, he could do impressions. But he could also play a good straight man (like a game show host, or the father in the Matt Foley sketch), which Carvey could never really do.

Memory playing tricks on you. Murphy was on the show 4 years. If its simply longevity then Hammond was on the show 14 years. There's a reason people leave the show, because their career outside the show is ready to take off. Many of the people who were on the show the longest never had their career take off from Tim Meadows to Kevin Nealon to Chris Parnell. Chevy Chase was on the show one full year and part of another because he was ready to hit it big in Hollywood. Several times they have fired the entire cast to start again. They did that three times in the 80s, the last time being because the names on the show were too big and they couldn't afford them anymore.

02-27-2012, 02:42 PM
I'm going to repeat my problem with Chris Farley winning this. He was a blue collar everyman that was extremly talented, but just went too hard. The difference between him and Belushi is that Belushi was the biggest star of the show for most of his era despite having a very talented cast. Farley was never the biggest star of SNL or even third best. He was the younger kid brother to everyone on that cast that always got into trouble. When I first watched Beverly Hills Ninja, I was expecting very little. He nailed it. I don't think people are going to be lining up in 20 years to get a 30th anniversary version of it. Tommy Boy and Black Sheep are both funny but essentially the same movie.

Rain Man
02-27-2012, 02:56 PM
Farley? Really?

The guy was funny, no doubt about it, and he had some great characters with the motivational speaker and the chippendales guy, but Eddie Murphy ruled the universe during his era.

His documentary about becoming a white guy was one of the funniest things I've seen on that show, not to mention his prison poet ("The watchdog barking. Do he bite? Kill my landlord, kill my landlord."), Gumby, Mr. Robinson's neighborhood, etc.

One of the funniest lines I ever heard on SNL came from Murphy on some mundane skit. A group of them were on a boat at Disney on the "It's a Small World" ride. The ride stopped and they were surrounded by hundreds of tiny dolls with the song repeating over and over. At some point Murphy jumped off the boat and is standing in waist-deep water with all of the little dolls behind him and the high-pitched singing, and he hunches down and says something like, "Reminds me of 'nam". It was so out of context with the rest of the skit that it made me guffaw.

I have a CD of some old SNL skits that feature Murphy. The best one in my opinion is James Brown singing the "Hot Tub" song. I now sing that song every time I take a bath and it makes bath time much more enjoyable for the entire family.

No way could Dan Aykroyd play Haru in Beverly Hills Ninja and have it be nearly as funny either.

Nah...instead he played in a comedy classic like Ghostbusters and played a straight guy who was hilarious.

Farley's one-dimensional persona has been talked about enough. I doubt he could have gone on and played a serious role like Aykroyd did in a couple of movies.

To mention Farley in the same breath as Aykroyd, Belushi and even Murphy when it comes to SNL is a travesty.

To be honest....Farley was more John Candy than anything else.

He wasn't even as talented as John Candy.

Do any of you get/listen to Elwood's House of Blues radio show? Ackroyd's weekly radio show, plays the real stuff and knows what he's talking about. Great show if you like the music.

When he was on SNL, Farley was on the cast with the following:

Dana Carvey
Mike Myers
Chris Rock
Phil Hartman
Adam Sandler
David Spade

I would consider every one of them bigger stars than Farley when they were on the show. I would say that every one of them had a bigger career outside of the show than Chris Farley. I'm not even sure that Kevin Nealon, Rob Schneider and Norm MacDonald were bigger stars on the show and after.

Agreed though in fairness it should probably be noted that Farley's career may have gone on to higher grounds had his heart not exploded like a balloon at the end of a fire hose.

Fardly. Sofa King, you ignorant slut.

Akroyd FTW.

I agree Farley wasn't that funny, Akroyd was probably the best.

It's now called Elwood's Blues Mobile btw... which I find really dumb. Good show though.

Yes, thanks. I guess they had to go with the digital/mobile thing but I refuse to acknowledge that handle. I like the show though, right up there with the Alice Cooper show and Dee Snyder's House of Hair.

Let's see if any one can finish this quote. It was one of the lines we always quoted back in the day, but evidently it wasn't very memorable to other people since I can't find it on the internet. I'm pretty sure it was a recurring skit:

"We drive up and down the boulevard, all day and all night in ....

No one remembers this skit, huh?

"... big cars that ride close to ground."

It was a bunch of low riders complaining about the price of gas. The skit basically consisted of them saying that line about every minute or two.

In all rounds, I based my votes on who made me laugh, who had the best skits/characters...

I did not include movies or post-SNL career.

I'm old enough to remember watching the original cast......and I still randomly watch SNL today.

I realize there is a lot of nostalgia for the original cast........but (to me) the skits just dont stand up over time like some of the other time-periods/casts do.

ANd if I had to pick one from original cast, it would have to be Ackroyd.

Murphy, Ferrel, Myers, Hartman, Ackroyd.....and Short as honorable mention

I would agree. Carvey's Church Lady was a bigger and better character than anything Farley did. Mike Myers gave us Austin Powers. Both of them gave us Wayne's World. Chris Rock's standup is great. Hartman had promise (before his wife killed him). Sandler's resume is too big to even get into (from Happy Gilmore to "The Hanukkah Song"). Spade is probably the weakest link in that group... and I'd still put him higher than Farley.

In fairness, Elway was statistically a very mediocre quarterback. Let me dig through my stats here and I'll show you.

Actually, in their first ten years as players, Dilfer had more seasons with QB ratings above 80 than Elway did, and Dilfer was the only one of the two with a season over a 90.
