TBT: Jane Curtin’s SNL Screen Test Has Us Rolling

Jane Curtin is one of our comedy idols. She can do insane wild characters (Coneheads, ya heard of it??) but she’s also one of the greatest straight-men in the business. Her little chipper deadpan face is still the best thing about so many old SNL sketches.

She’s had an amazing comedy career, and you can see the roots of it all in this hilarrrrrrrious screen test from the 70’s. That cat joke brings a tear to our eyes and a lil pee to our chairs.
