You can catch them from home this evening and on September 27 at 8pm on NBC—or if you’re dying to watch the political riffs in person, queue for tickets to the latter's 6pm dress rehearsal or 8pm live broadcast. Standby tix for the September 27 installment will be distributed on 49th Street, just outside 30 Rockefeller Plaza (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues) at 10am that morning. To kick off the shows, we present, in chronological order, five awesome skits, which mock past Presidents and…Sarah Palin. Chevy Chase as President Gerald Ford
