Saturday Night Live in Helena lives

Raucous comedy tradition skewers State Capitol shenanigans March 15-18

On Stage

Satire, courtesy of the local version of Saturday Night Live, returns to the Myrna Loy in Helena because, say organizers, “it takes more than COVID to knock out a 40-year local comedy tradition.”
Saturday Night Live in Helena survives and even thrives – with a whole new raucous and hilarious skewering of what’s going on at the State Capitol.
This year, SNL generously widens its scope to take in the absurdities of the nation’s Capitol.
Saturday Night Live, starring the usual suspects plus a lot of fresh faces, hits the stage at 7:30 p.m. nightly from Wednesday, March 15, through Saturday, March 18.
“We are just looking at all the things that are going on in our country, our culture, our state and community to see if we can find a way to laugh together about it,” says director Randy Furhrmann.
Some special guests are dropping by – local favorite comic and former SNL director Mokey McNeilly visits a couple nights, as well as cast members from the Virginia City Brewery Follies on March 17 and 18.
“And there’s a very special guest,” says Furhrmann. “Jesus will be making an appearance.”
And, as of now, there are at least three songs about amending the Montana Constitution, plus the amazingly popular mind-twisting spoonerisms by Ian Marquand will return.
Tickets are $25 and available online, at 15 N. Ewing, or by phone 406-443-0287.
