Airing 14 times between 1996 and 2002, "Celebrity Jeopardy!" was arguably one of the best recurring Saturday Night Live sketches of the 1990s. Alex Trebek, portrayed by Will Ferrell, was constantly tormented by frequent contestant Sean Connery, played by Darrel Hammond, among other colorful and often clueless celebrities. Characters like Burt Reynolds (Norm Macdonald), Sharon Osbourne (Amy Poehler), and Bill Cosby (Kenan Thompson) served as other contestants, each with their own horribly incorrect Jeopardy! answers.
Striking out with women on a regular basis during the 1990s, Doug and Steve Butabi, played by Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell, were "The Roxbury Guys." Easily distinguishable in their rayon suits, The Roxbury Guys enjoyed visiting clubs, bobbing their heads in unison to "What is Love," and gyrating against unwilling women as much as possible. Kattan and Ferrell later took the characters to a movie, A Night at the Roxbury.
Played by Molly Shannon, "Mary Katherine Gallagher" was an unpopular and quirky Catholic school girl who was sure she was a 'superstar.' Later appearing in a film titled Superstar, Mary Katherine Gallagher was either hyper or ultra-nervous at any given time and especially anxious when she took the stage to audition for one of various school-related drama performances.
