Louis Klein is a diehard Saturday Night Live fan. He attended last Saturday's performance hosted by Will Ferrell, and in fact has attended quite a few weekend performances over the last 30 years.

Klein attended the dress rehearsal of the very first SNL production on October 11, 1975, and since then, he says he's been to 665 shows -- so many that he has been issued the first-ever "permanent ticket" in SNL history.
Why does he keep going back? "I love it," Klein says. "It started out as something to do on a Saturday."
Now his Saturdays are filled for good, without the long nights spent on the sidewalk in front of Rockefeller Center in line for tickets.
