Name your favorite cast members or hosts of SNL!

I've been wanting to create a bracket having participated in several of them as well as come up with one that I haven't seen yet. Not sure if the boys at CBS will like this but after seeing Steve Martin host his 15th episode last week, it struck me that I hadn't seen a blog, bracket or poll here devoted to this long running comedy/variety show. It's had its ups and downs but has endured for 34 seasons now and shows no signs of stopping...yet. Brandon Tartikoff couldn't kill it, NBC has been unable to kill it. 

I personally would have a hard time narrowing down a list to 10 favorites so please name as many as you like but no more than 20 guest hosts, current or former cast members. The only real criteria I ask in your selections is that they are based on the quality of their work on this show only, so people like Steve Martin or Eddie Murphy shouldn't be penalized for doing crappy films, LOL. I'll keep this open for at least two weeks or until I have enough candidates to fill the bracket. Thanks and rock on in peace!  Tongue out

I failed to mention, great call on Buck Henry!  Hosted 10 times (including the time THE GRATEFUL DEAD performed in '78) and in the early years was repeatedly the host of the last show of the season.  Loved Uncle Roy (the pederass babysitter).  Very funny!

Thanks for participating Mando!

LOL, IGetNo.  Ever been to the Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago, home of the Chee-booga?  Awesome.  Must be stopped at on any road trip thru Chicago. 

Catch a bass, remove the hook, and drop the bass - that's the whole bass - into the Super Bass-o-Matic '76.  Now, adjust the control dial so that the bass is blended just the way you like it.  Yes, it's that simple!

and this fave...

What's all this fuss I hear about the 1976 presidential erections? I know that they erected a monument for Mr. Lincoln and President Washington, but that's because they're dead! Hopefully, the 1976 president won't be dead, so he won't need an erection . . .
