Marc Maron on Chevy Chase
Between the ages of 12 and 25, Saturday Night Live was extremely important to me. It was spontaneous and sort of punk rock. I remember orchestrating my own pratfalls at school because I was such a big Chevy Chase fan. His physical timing was astounding — he was a goofball, but I liked how ridiculous he was. I remember when he hurt himself I was impressed at his commitment. There have been so many great people to come out of SNL, but that whole first cast...they stood out like Hendrix in my mind.
