Bobby Moynihan Jr.

When he was initially cast on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC 1975- ), Bobby Moynihan was immediately compared to Chris Farley and John Belushi, two other heavy-set cast members. But while the 5'8, 200+ lb. Moynihan was a gifted physical comedian, his size was rarely a major part of fan-favorite characters like the belligerent yet incoherent Drunk Uncle and Riblet, the aimless high school pal of Weekend Update anchor Michael Che. Moynihan's sheer ebullience was a bigger asset. Bobby Moynihan was born in Eastchester, NY on January 31, 1978 and went to Eastchester High School and the University of Connecticut, where he got his degree in theatre. He started acting professionally in 2002, but didn't find immediate success. He did become part of New York's improv stalwarts the Upright Citizens Brigade, which helped him land on SNL in 2008. He immediately integrated himself into the cast as a journeyman player in various sketches before introducing his own characters, such as the Weekend Update regulars Drunk Uncle and "second-hand news" correspondent Anthony Crispino, who delivered overheard and misunderstood news stories to the Update anchors. His work on SNL soon started landing him roles in other projects, including guest spots on "Portlandia" (IFC 2011- ), "Happy Endings" (ABC 2011-13), which co-starred his former SNL co-star Casey Wilson, and "Girls" (HBO 2012- ). His film work included supporting roles in the Pixar sequel "Monsters University" (2013), the Adam Sandler vehicle "Grown-Ups 2" (2013) and the Vince Vaughn comedy "Delivery Man" (2013). In early 2014, Moynihan took his first starring role on "Chozen" (FX 2014), an animated comedy by the creators of "Archer" (FX 2009- ) in which he played the title character, a gay, white rapper trying to restart his career after leaving prison. After nine seasons on "Saturday Night Live," Moynihan left in 2017 to star in his own prime-time sitcom, "Me, Myself & I" (CBS 2017- ).
