NEW YORK – Visitors can relive comedic moments that became part of pop culture at the “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition.” Premier Exhibitions, developer of museum exhibits throughout the world, will launch the exhibit this spring at the Premier On 5th exhibition and special events center.
The exhibit will present a closer look at the 40-year comedy machine, “Saturday Night Live,” which created iconic skits and quotable lines, such as “I’ve got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell.” Guests will glimpse behind the curtain at the work and fun that goes into producing the live show each week.
“In addition to connecting visitors with the back story of the show and affording an opportunity to relive the show’s most laughable moments and sketches, “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition” goes even further to give people a sense of what it’s like to be part of the creative team, and the frenetic schedule and pace that is involved with each weekly episode,” said Mark Lach, creative director of Premier Exhibitions. “It can look so effortless on TV, but this exhibition illustrates that a lot of hard work and preparation undoubtedly goes into each and every laugh.”
The exhibit reveals the intense process involved in bringing a mix of political satire, slapstick and offbeat humor to the show each week. Original scripts, props, costumes and interactive elements help bring their favorite sketches to life.
