Go Backstage at Saturday Night Live

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 6th 2007 9:01AM

snlOver on NBC's site for SNL, there's a new (I'm pretty sure it's new*) section called Saturday Night Live Backstage. The section includes backstage videos (natch) and an interactive feature called "Star in Weekend Update" that allows registered users to edited together clips from the "Weekend Update" segment into an annoying, confusing mess that's not even remotely amusing.

At any rate, the site is worth checking out if you're one of those people who like to peel back the cover to see how a show's gears all mesh together. There are clips from the dressing rooms, writers' room, make-up department, and all kinds of other cool backstage stuffs, including brief interviews with the writers and performers from the show.

After poking around the site, I think my favorite part was the interview with writer James Downey, who paraphrases Woody Allen: 'writing comedy is either easy, or it's impossible.'

*Update: My readers say it's a few months old, actually.
