Saturday Night Live Plot

In this iconic late-night comedy show, actors, artists, and comedians come together to carry out brief but hilarious comedy sketches and parodies of mostly current and intelligent subjects, along with the occasional ridiculous ones such as television commercials.
 
Saturday Night Live also features a live guest band, a musical appearance from trending artists, and a pop-cultural guest host every week. The American comedy show is notorious for kick-starting successful independent comedy or even movie careers of its major players. And no, we are not talking about Donald Trump.
