Lorne Michaels Biography Is in the Works

(via NY Times)

No matter how you feel about SNL these days, Lorne Michaels changed comedy forever and definitely needs a book written just about him.

While there are plenty of books that give the back story and ins and outs of SNL, there isn’t really a proper, in-depth biography of Michaels who not only is the driving force behind SNL, but also Kids in the Hall, Late Night, and more as well as an entire generation of comedy whose effects will be felt for many years to come.

A biography on Lorne Michaels has finally been set to be written by The New Yorker’s Susan Morrison and published by Random House.

Whenever it comes out, we’re sure it’ll feature plenty of stories that have yet to be told in full on comedy podcasts.
