Saturday Night Live Censor
Saturday, May 04, 2002
Live, late-night, edgy satire and censorship doesn’t mix well. So imagine pulling down a paycheck as a censor for Saturday Night Live - debating which fart joke goes too far, and deciding how anatomically correct puppets can be. Bill Clotworthy had this job as Director of Program Standards from 1979 to 1990. Brooke chats with him about the skits that did and did not make it on the show.
