Some cast members of Saturday Night Live catapult to superstardom. Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Chevy Chase, and Tina Fey got their fair share of post-SNL fame. Then there are the countless others. They’re the ones who make a splash on the show, but don’t replicate that level of fame outside of Lorne Michaels’ domain. It’s not that they do nothing. It’s just that their latter work never matched the pop culture impact of their Not Ready for Prime Time days.

There are good-hearted and loving former SNL players waiting for someone to entertain, and you can help. They simply got the wrong end of the stick. There’s nothing wrong with them. They can be funny and they can be loved.

Head to Chandler Center for the Arts and find your forever SNL-friend in Jon Lovitz, Tim Meadows, and Chris Kattan, as they get get their comedy on at 8 p.m. Get ‘em amped up, and who knows? Maybe their comebacks are just around the corner.
