What are the qualifications to be on Saturday Night Live?

Oftentimes, appearing on a number of talk shows, or just one or two of the big ones (with jay leno or with letterman), you have a much higher chance of being the host of SNL. If you don't want to host, just get some connections with the SNL crew and be really really hyperactive and funny and really really famous in your own right through a daytime drama (a soap opera has worked for millions) or a primetime show, a movie, or something such as that.
