Gasping for Airtime: Two Years in the Trenches of Saturday Night Live by Jay Mohr
Gasping for Airtime: Two Years in the Trenches of Saturday Night Live
2004, Hyperion, New York
Jay Mohr is a comedian who wrote and performed for Saturday Night Live for two years in the 1990s. This is the story of his time at the show.
This was a very easy book to read, the writing just flowed and shone with honesty. It was fascinating to read about how dysfunctional that work environment is and how Jay coped despite it all. I have never seen Saturday Night Live of course, but I enjoyed the read very much - it made me laugh out loud.
