20. Harry Shearer (1979-80, 1984-85)
Fun fact: Shearer had not one but two stints as a repertory player on Saturday Night Live, both of them terrifically unhappy. (When Shearer left the show for a second time, then-Executive Producer Dick Ebersol blamed creative differences; upon hearing that excuse, Shearer reportedly quipped, ”Yeah, I was creative and they were different.”) Thankfully, Shearer soon found a better outlet for his talents: The Simpsons, where he’s been voicing iconic characters like Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders for the past 24 years. He may not have the name recognition of some big SNL alumni — but those ridiculously lucrative residuals are pretty eeeexcellent. — Hillary Busis
