There have been plenty of cast members on Saturday Night Live through the decades. Some are more popular than others, and David Spade and Dana Carvey are two of those comics that fans consistently talk about when discussing the 1990s era SNL episodes. Dana Carvey grew massively popular with his portrayal of rocker Garth, who was the sidekick to Mike Meyers’ Wayne. Wayne’s World was even turned into two films. Spade started as a writer initially before becoming a cast member and being teamed up with the boisterous Chris Farley. The pair would go on to make hilarious films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. Now the both of them are set to start a podcast that goes through the ins and outs of the sketch comedy show.
Fly on the Wall is the name of the podcast that David Spade and Dana Carvey are starting, and it aims to just give fans a more in-depth and behind-the-scenes look into favorite guests, musical performers, cast members, sketches, and moments that have happened on Saturday Night Live. This sounds to be like a great podcast for those who are mega-fans of the show, or just fans of all the guests and comedians that are set to appear on the podcast. The first episode is set to launch on January 12th and will feature Chris Rock and Rob Lowe.
Guests slated to appear on the podcast are Chris Rock, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks, Darrell Hammond, Kevin Nealon, Jon Lovitz, Martin Short, Melanie Hutsell, Ana Gasteyer, Tim Meadows, Laraine Newman, Rob Lowe, and Will Forte. That’s not a bad pairing to go along with Spade and Carvey to kick things off. The podcast is set to launch on Cadence 13, a podcast production company that produces a myriad of different podcast subjects.
The initial idea for the podcast was thought of by both Dana Carvey and David Spade, who have both remained great friends past their stints on Saturday Night Live. The pair have consistently gone to dinner with one another, and apparently, the majority of their conversations consist of them discussing all the hilarious times and great moments from the show, so they decided to give fans a dose of what it was like when the cameras aren’t rolling. When asked about the podcast, Carvey had a hilarious response to the idea, saying, “We were lucky enough to overlap on SNL for a few years, where I thought he was fantastic, and have been talking about it ever since. We have dinner twice a month and talk about life and show business—I usually pay, but I’m not bitter—.” It sounds like this podcast has the makings of some true comedy.
Both David Spade and Dana Carvey left the show to have outstanding film careers on top of touring as some of the top-rated stand-up comedy talents in the entire world. Fly on the Wall sounds like the type of podcast that has been put together by comedians and for comedians, only the fans are the ones who get the benefit of listening to such great background stories from Saturday Night Live. Hopefully, there are plenty of stories added about the perennial funnyman Chris Farley. Check out Fly on the Wall starting January 12th on Cadence 13.
