By Helen Bach | October 24, 2013

Fred Armisen was a cast member on Saturday Night Live a few years ago and if the show didn’t suck so badly would never have gained any fame. See the show is so horrific that a comedian need only one good bit to be a ‘star’. I kid you not if Armisen was in the ‘good ol days of SNL’ he’d have ended up a bit player for half a season.
