SNL Brings Back “The Five-Timers” Club

They must really like Justin Timberlake around Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center.  (That’s the actual location where they tape “Saturday Night Live.”)

Not mentioned, but often teased at since introduced as a concept in 1990, the SNL “Five-Timers Club” was brought back to welcome former ‘N Snyc front man Justin Timberlake as their newest member.

Former inductees Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Paul Simon (not as host, but as musical guest), Candice Bergen (the first woman member), Alec Baldwin (the current holder of “Most Times as SNL Host” at 16), and Tom Hanks all came back to welcome him.  Also making appearances as “club staff” were former cast members Martin Short and Dan Aykroyd.

Here’s the original 1990 sketch with Tom Hanks being inducted.   As you can see, Steve Martin and Paul Simon had already earned their memberships, as well has comedian Elliot Gould.  Staff waiter at the time was former cast member Jon Lovitz.

Do take notice at who the doorman of the club is.  “Sean” might look a bit familiar.

Also, I can’t believe they left out the “Club Handshake” for Timberlake.  Guess he’s not “that great.”

  • Is that when Paul Simon and Edie Brickell met?

    No, that was two years earlier in 1988; but it was at the set of SNL when Simon stopped by when she was musical guest when Matt Modine hosted.
