Live From New York!
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 7:30 PM
A New York institution and comedy powerhouse, “Saturday Night Live” has been reflecting and influencing life in the United States for 40 years. “Live From New York!” goes deep inside this cultural phenomenon exploring the laughter that pulses through American politics, tragedy and popular culture.
Because an evening spent with folks like Beldar Conehead, Wayne Algar, the Blues Brothers, and Debbie Downer just isn’t enough, Live From New York!’s premiere will be followed by a live 30-minute performance from Ludacris, the Atlanta-proud rapper extraordinaire who’s currently dominated worldwide box offices as one of the gargantuan hit Furious 7’s stars.
Music has always been just as crucial for SNL’s legacy as its comedy—receiving the call to appear inside NBC’s headquarters is a rite of passage for all music industry stars. Luda has received that call three times, twice to perform and once to host. So who better to honor Lorne Michaels’ iconic brainchild than Mr. “Southern Hospitality”?
