Movie Details

Take a behind-the-scenes look at the comedy club that served as the genesis for SCTV and Saturday Night Live with this documentary originally shot for Canadian television and featuring interviews with an impressive array of history-making hosted by Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, and Scott Thompson. Few could have seen the remarkable future in store for a small Chicago comedy club that first opened its doors in December of 1959. Now comedy fans can see just how some of their favorite stars broke into the big time as rare archival clips combine with the memories of Dan Aykroyd, Paul Shaffer, Eugene Levy, Martin Short, and Catherine O'Hara to offer a visual history of comedy's defining force. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
