Bobby Moynihan is returning to the SNL stage for his third season as a Featured Player. Moynihan has made numerous contributions to SNL including laugh out loud impressions of Guy Fieri and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. He has also entertained us as "Mark Payne," a disastrous waiter at Pizzeria Uno and as "Vinny Vedecci Jr." the son of Bill Hader's Italian talk show host.
Moynihan is a fixture at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York (co-founded by SNL's Amy Poehler), where he continues to perform as a proud member of the popular UCB house improv team The Stepfathers. He was a member of UCB Harold teams The Shoves and Police Chief Rumble and was a writer/performer for the UCB Touring Company. He still performs regularly at the UCB's signature weekly "Assssscat" show.
In addition, Moynihan has performed alongside members of the popular sketch group Derrick Comedy and also appears with SNL alum Horatio Sanz, as part of Sanz's 'Kings of Improv Tour.'
Moynihan is a member 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 appeared in the feature films, "The Invention of Lying," directed by and starring Ricky Gervais, "When in Rome," with Kristen Bell, Will Arnett, Dax Shepard, Jon Heder and Josh Duhamel and "Mystery Team," an indie from Derrick Comedy which premiered at Sundance in 2009. Moynihan also appeared on MTV's "Human Giant," and can next be seen in the upcoming film, "Certainty."
Moynihan hails from Eastchester, NY, and lives in New York. His birthday is January 31.
