Tonight I'm joined by actor and comedian Garrett Morris, one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live. It has been 40 years since SNL made its debut on NBC featuring a group of seven talented young players who went on to become comedy legends: Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, Laraine Newman, and, of course, Garrett Morris. Garrett continues to make audiences laugh with his role on CBS's 2 Broke Girls and at his blues and comedy club in Los Angeles. SNL's 40th Anniversary Special airs this Sunday on NBC.
In the clip below, I ask Garrett which of his many memorable SNL characters is his all-time favorite.
