The 2 p.m. funny -- #1, SNL's "Olympia Restaurant"

Beginning today, and continuing indefinitely, I am going to post, when I can, each weekday at 2 p.m., a video of a classic restaurant comedy sketch. I'll look for classics and new stuff, and please send me your favorites. Or make your own!

First up from Season 3 of Saturday Night Live, what I'm pretty sure is the first edition of what would become (for no good reason) a recurring SNL sketch. They're all so young!!

I am hoping to get some curatorial help for this from the Second City cast performing at Center Stage.
