That Show Hasn't Been Funny In Years: an SNL podcast on Radio Misfits

Award-winning radio personality, podcaster, and SNL fanatic/historian NICK DIGILIO hosts this weekly deep dive into the world of the granddaddy of all sketch-comedy shows.

Jon talks about how he was discovered at a comedy festival, what he did for his SNL audition, and what it was like to work those grueling, no-sleep-having hours at 30 Rock (without the cocaine they had in the 70s). They talk about hi...
