Catherine O'Hara



Women aren't funny my heiny!  That's right, I said heiny!  Didn't have her on my list, but a damned funny actress who, it occurs to me, should have been a much bigger star than she was.  Had some other SCTV alums on my list, but afraid she didn't quite make it.  Also, I think I plum thought of her, then forgot.

Graham Chapman


My thoughts:
#18 on my list.  I love all of the Pythons.  Holy Grail is one of my favorite comedies and Graham is brilliant in it.  He died way too young and, I am sure, had so much more comedy in him to give to the world.

The Wiki:
Graham Arthur Chapman (8 January 1941 – 4 October 1989) was an English comedian, physician, writer, actor, and one of the six members of the Monty Python comedy troupe.

Nice.  Watched the entirety of Monty Python recently and I loved it. Graham was brilliant as King Arthur and it's a shame his career  came to a close to soon.

Dan Aykroyd


My thoughts:
#11 on my list.  I remember being allowed and trying to stay up late on Saturday nights back in the '70s to watch SNL.  A lot of the humor went over my head, but I could tell that these guys were funny.  Been re-watching a lot of those first 5 years of SNL and it is amazing how good Dan Aykroyd was on that show.  Everyone always holds up Belushi, Gilda, and Murray as the big talents on the show, but I think Ackroyd was the best of that bunch on that show.  (And on the same note, Laraine Newman was really great on there as well.)  His work after SNL in films such as Ghostbusters and Trading Places is top notch.  Fun fact: Although I don't remember it, my Mom tells me I freaked out when he "cut" himself in the famous Julia Child skit.

 
The Wiki:
Daniel Edward "Dan" Aykroyd, (born July 1, 1952) is a Canadian comedian, singer, actor and screenwriter. He was an original cast member of Saturday Night Live, an originator of The Blues Brothers (with John Belushi) and Ghostbusters and has had a long career as a film actor and screenwriter.

John Belushi


My thoughts:
Belushi certainly was talented.  Although he was obviously troubled.  Another early death, to think he was only 33 when he passed away.  I can only imagine what other film and television work he would have brought us had he lived.  How many iconic roles he would have stolen from other actors and made his own.  I always heard that the role of Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters was envisioned for him.  Maybe he would have been Axel Foley?  His work on SNL was great and the few films he did make were all pretty good too.

 
The Wiki:
John Adam Belushi (January 24, 1949 – March 5, 1982) was an American comedian, actor, and musician, best known as one of the original cast members of the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live and starring alongside Dan Aykroyd in the comedy film The Blues Brothers. He was the older brother of James "Jim" Belushi.

Finally saw Blues Brothers recently.  John and Dan are fantastic.  Probably their best roles and a phenomenally fun movie.

Catherine O'Hara

I could've easily put the entire cast of SCTV on my list; such an amazing collection of comedy talent. While I didn't consider her a major player on the show, she definitely had her moments. I love her work in the Guest films, too.

Also, best Hepburn impression ever.

Graham Chapman

Again, I could have included all of the Pythons; I think I had three as it is. Chapman was fantastic, and definitely deserving of a place on the list.

Dan Aykroyd

Aykroyd would've made my list if we were doing only sketch comedians; so many great moments on SNL.

One of my favorites:

John Belushi

Had Belushi at #15; perhaps as more of a commemorative pick now that I think about it. He was quite the talent, and while some of his work might not have aged all that well with my tastes in humor, a lot of his performances still make me laugh.

It's funny, my favorite Belushi bits isn't even played strictly for comedy, although it has moments.

So strange to watch.  :(

I had Catherine O'Hara on my list for Lola Heatherton alone. She's a great, versatile performer. I agree, though, about the entire SCTV cast. I think I had three or four of them on my list.

Didn't have Graham Chapman but he was a hard one to cut. In the end I had John Cleese to represent the Pythons because of Fawlty Towers (which, of course, wasn't a Python bit but one of my favorite tv shows).

Left Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi off my list. Both funny men, I guess, but neither of them ever did anything for me. Aykroyd was actually a "mmmmmmaybe" but Belushi wouldn't have made it at all. But the weirdest thing was seeing that he was born in 1949. What the hell!

Jason Alexander


My thoughts:
So...  George Costanza...  OK...  Don't get me wrong.  I think Seinfeld was a really funny show, but the thought of putting anyone from that show on this list never even crossed my mind.

YES!  I love Prickley too, but she's done more than that.  Also, though Edith this the most versatile character she did on SCTV, my favourite is...
