As “Saturday Night Live” fans know, or vividly recall,- Ed Koch was the first mayor to appear on “SNL" -- and did so about four times. Koch died Friday at 2 a.m., at the age of 88.

“How I'm doing? You know have to answer that -- a better question is, what am I doing here.” That's how he opened his monologue in 1983. Adding this: “I think Ronald Reagan is a wacko.”  Eddie Murphy and Julia Louis-Dreyfus were cast members at the time. You can watch the whole episode here, or if you have to get back to work, this little clip should suffice.
