31 Day SNL Challenge: Favorite Audition
Dana Carvey whipped out Derek Stevens, Kristen Wiig whipped out the Target Lady, Will Ferrell whipped out the cookout dad. There are so many great auditions in the storied history of Saturday Night Live. I've seen Jimmy's time and again (the Adam Sandler impression never gets old) and I've never been given the pleasure of seeing Andy Samberg's full audition (though, The Out of Breath Jogger from 1982 is quite possibly the greatest thing I've ever seen) and the same goes for Gilda Radner. But one audition tape I keep returning to is that of Phil Hartman. He seems so calm, comfortable, and collected. He seems so prepared and ready and he just has great flow and a wonderful demeanor that would mark his time in Studio 8H.
