Season 14 premiered on October 8, 1988 with host Tom Hanks and musical guest, Keith Richards. Midseason, Mike Myers and Ben Stiller were hired as featured players. While Mike had quick success with Dieter and Wayne's World, Ben Stiller clashed with executive producer Lorne Michaels, due to a contrast in differences. The season finale with host Steve Martin included a tribute to original cast member Gilda Radner, who passed away earlier that day.
