SNL's Dana Carvey Episode: 5 Best Scenes

More

>[Dana Carvey's much-anticipated SNL homecoming brought with it surprise appearances by former castmates Jon Lovitz and Mike Myers (who joined Carvey in opening the show with a 2011 Oscars edition of Wayne's World). Also putting in several appearances was Justin Bieber (born a year after Carvey retired from the show.) In his monologue, Carvey reminisced about his first episode ever, on October 11, 1986, and extolled the greatness of the '86 to '93 cast. Linkin Park performed "Waiting for the End to Come" and "When They Come for Me."]

Some highlights...

Isn't that special... Church Lady has harsh words for Snooki and the Kardashians—but can't resist the charms of "Jesus's finest creation," Justin Bieber.

Sage Stossel is a contributing editor at The Atlantic and draws the cartoon feature "Sage, Ink." She is author/illustrator of the graphic novel Starling, and of the children's books  On the Loose in Boston and On the Loose in Washington, DC. More

On Election Day in 1996, TheAtlantic.com launched a weekly editorial cartoon feature drawn by Sage Stossel and named (aptly enough) "Sage, Ink." Since then, Stossel's whimsical work has been featured by the New York Times Week in Review, CNN Headline News, Cartoon Arts International/The New York Times Syndicate, The Boston Globe, Nieman Reports, Editorial Humor, The Provincetown Banner (for which she received a 2009 New England Press Association Award), and elsewhere. Her work has also been included in Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year, (2005, 2006, 2009, and 2010 editions) and Attack of the Political Cartoonists. Her children's book, On the Loose in Boston, was published in June 2009.

Sage Stossel grew up in a suburb of Boston and attended Harvard University, where she majored in English and American Literature and Languages and did a weekly cartoon strip about college life, called "Jody," for the Harvard Crimson. From 2004 to 2007, she served as Books Editor of the Radcliffe Quarterly

After college she took what was intended to be a temporary summer position securing electronic rights to articles from The Atlantic's archive for use online. Intrigued by The Atlantic's rich history and the creative possibilities in helping to launch a digital edition of the magazine on the Web, she soon joined The Atlantic full time. As the site's former executive editor, she was involved in everything from contributing reviews, author interviews, and illustrations, to hosting message boards and producing a digital edition of The Atlantic for the Web.

Stossel lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
