Bobby Moynihan is returning to "SNL" for his seventh season.
Moynihan plays the crowd favorite Drunk Uncle on "Weekend Update" as well as other original characters, including Anthony Crispino, a secondhand news anchor who misguidedly reports anything but the truth. His impressions include Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Guy Fieri, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Newt Gingrich.
Moynihan's other television credits include guest spots on HBO's "Girls" and ABC's "Happy Endings." He also voiced the lead role in FXX's animated comedy "Chozen." Moynihan currently lends his voice to the Hulu original animated series "The Awesomes," created by Seth Meyers.
On film, Moynihan had a supporting role in the Adam Sandler comedy "Grown Ups 2" and voiced the character Chet in Pixar's "Monsters University." He also appeared in "The Invention of Lying," co-directed by and starring Ricky Gervais; "When in Rome," with Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel; and "Mystery Team," an indie from Internet sketch group Derrick Comedy that premiered at Sundance in 2009. He can next be seen in Ross Katz's "Adult Beginners," and will also appear in the upcoming film "Staten Island Summer."
Moynihan is a fixture at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, where he continues to perform regularly at the signature weekly "Assssscat" show. He is also a co-founder of the sketch group "Buffoons" with friends Charlie Sanders and Eugene Cordero. The group's antics, reminiscent of the Three Stooges, were a hit at Montreal's Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2007.
Moynihan graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1999. He hails from Eastchester, NY, and lives in New York City. His birthday is January 31.
