244. Live Show Cast 1975 or 1976

Q: The live touring show came to my college (SUNY Morrisville, NY) in either 1975 or 1976. I saw the show and want to know who the performers were on the bill at that show.

A: Daniel says in the Comments: “According to Matty Simmons’ book, If You Don’t Buy This Book We’ll Kill This Dog, the National Lampoon Show cast was originally comprised of Harold Ramis, Brian Doyle-Murray, Bill Murray, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, and Joe Flaherty. Belushi was later replaced by Meatloaf, and Radner was later replaced by Mimi Kennedy and Ellen Foley. Later cast members included: Jim Hosbein, Barry Diamond and Larry Dilg. The Show closed in 1975.” Thanks, Daniel!

    I vaguely recall seeing the National Lampoon Show at my college, Slippery Rock, maybe 1974 or 1975. If anyone can pin down the date of the performance and who the cast members were, I would be thrilled.
