'30 Rock,' 'SNL,' and 'The Daily Show' Live On

The Onion A.V. Club found an exciting bit of news to counter all the depression surrounding the writers strike: the casts of 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live will stage live performances of their shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC.

The 30 Rock performance, set for Monday night, is already sold out at the 150-seat theatre, but the SNL performance on Saturday night, to be hosted by Michael Cera (Superbad, Arrested Development), has been kept more of a secret, the New York Post reports. (Unfortunately, that show is now reportedly sold out as well.)

Proceeds from the sale of tickets to 30 Rock - priced at a modest $20 - will go to the Writers Guild strike fund, the Web site says.


WGA writers must want to keep their creative juices flowing just as much as viewers want to keep drinking them in.

Writers for The Daily Show are also, according to The Defamer, "refusing to be slowed by their temporary lack of an indoor studio, regular host, and Comedy Central-financed production values, producing a strike-altered version of the program on the streets of NY."
