Garrett Morris earned his status as a comedy legend by making the cast of the first season of Saturday Night Live -- nobody knew it yet, of course, but alongside Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, Morris created funny sketches that ended up changing TV comedy forever. As baseball player Chico Escuela and the "School For The Hard Of Hearing" man, Morris turned in performances that make every highlight reel from the show's early years. A Julliard-trained performer, Morris has continued his career in television and movie comedy to this day, with recent work in Ant-Man and 2 Broke Girls.
