Gasping for Airtime: Two Years in the Trenches of Saturday Night Live
Gasping for Airtime: Two Years in the Trenches of Saturday Night Live is a 2004 memoir by former Saturday Night Live featured player Jay Mohr. In it, Mohr recounts, among other things, his battles with panic attacks, being intimidated by castmates Rob Schneider and Ellen Cleghorne, his conflicts with Al Franken, his admiration for deceased castmates Chris Farley and Phil Hartman, the admission that he stole material from actor/comedian Rick Shapiro, and being depressed about his lack of sketch appearances.
Future SNL castmember Bobby Moynihan has said that it was one of his favorite SNL related books, calling it "a handbook on what NOT to do at SNL."
