Bully Boys

Showbiz nickname of comedians Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and John Belushi from the late night comedy show SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE/NBC/1976+.

Producer Lorne Micheal dubbed the comedians “Bully Boys” for their high energy, out-spoken antics back stage on the show. Reportedly, the boys were always late for rehearsals and unprepared while the girl comics were always on time and prepared for the show.
