Bobby Moynihan is a much-loved repertory player on Saturday Night Live. He is returning for his sixth season, playing many of his hilarious characters. He also appears in movies and does voice acting.
Moynihan began his career doing improv, as part of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. He was at UCB, located in New York City, for ten years. He was also part of a sketch-comedy trio, "The Buffoons," with Eugene Cordero and Charlie Sanders. Bobby has worked in a web-series, The Line, funded by Lorne Michael's production company. The Line was directed by Seth Meyers, and also starred Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis, both of Saturday Night Live.
Bobby Moynihan doesn't do much in the way of impressions, with the exceptions of Kim Jong Un and Jersey Shore's Snooki. He is most famous for his many recurring and hilarious characters. Most notable are Drunk Uncle, a ranting, inebriated fellow, and Anthony Crispino, who "breaks news," with wildly inaccurate information. Both these characters are regular guests on Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. With Cecily Strong, he plays Niff. These characters are known for ripping on their co-workers, when they believe they are about to be fired.
Bobby has been appearing in television and movies since 2002. He worked on Conan O'Brien's show for three years. He most recently appeared in the movies The Delivery Man and Grown Ups 2. Moynihan was the voice of Chet Alexander, in the movie Monsters University. He will next appear in the movies Staten Island Summer and Neighbors, with Zac Efron and Seth Rogen.
