Before They Were Stars: Harold Ramis on “The National Lampoon Radio Hour”

Sadly, a true comedy legend has left us, as actor-writer-director Harold Ramis just passed away of vasculitis at the age of 69. In the 1970s, Ramis started his career performing for Second City and wound up getting a gig on the The National Lampoon Radio Hour, a comedy radio show produced by National Lampoon magazine. The show featured a plethora of notable comedic performers who would go on to bigger things, including Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Brian Doyle-Murray, Christopher Guest, Richard Belzer and  Joe Flaherty. In this clip from the sketch, “Guru Craig Baker, The Perfect Master Visits a Bar”, you get to hear a pre-fame Harold Ramis and John Belushi interact with each other.
