Bobby Moynihan is returning to "SNL" for his sixth season. Moynihan plays the crowd favorite Drunk Uncle on Weekend Update as well as other original characters such as 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 memorable recent guest spots on HBO's "Girls" and ABC's "Happy Endings." He'll also be voicing the lead role in the upcoming animated comedy "Chozen" on FXX, produced by the creative team behind "Eastbound and Down" and "Archer."
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 can next be seen in the Vince Vaughn comedy "The Delivery Man," and will also appear in the upcoming films "Staten Island Summer" and "Neighbors," starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron.
Moynihan's past screen credits include "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.
In addition to creating "The Sidecar," an original web series for Above Average that premiered in 2012, Moynihan lends his voice to the Hulu original animated series "The Awesomes," created by fellow "SNL" cast member Seth Meyers.
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.
