Bobby Moynihan is returning to "SNL" for his fourth season. Moynihan's catalog of impressions includes Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Guy Fieri, while his characters include "Mark Payne," a disastrous waiter at Pizzeria Uno; and "Vinny Vedecci Jr.," the son of Bill Hader's Italian talk show host. Recently he has also appeared on "Weekend Update" portraying Anthony Crispino, a second-hand news anchor who reports anything but the truth.
Moynihan is a fixture at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, 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 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 appeared in the feature films "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 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, New York, and lives in New York City. His birthday is January 31.
