Saturday Night Live FAQ:  Recurring Characters
==============================================
Saturday Night Recurring Characters is a list of recurring characters
from NBC's Saturday Night.  I have tried to limit the list to recurring
characters, but some of the single appearance characters have been
memorable enough to list them anyway.  I'm also listing anytime a
player has done a celebrity.  There have also been hosts that have
played recurring characters.  A few of them have been added at the
end of the list.
