Bobby Moynihan is returning to "SNL" for his fifth season. Moynihan plays the crowd favorite Drunk Uncle on Weekend Update, as well as other original characters such as Anthony Crispino, a second-hand news anchor who misguidedly reports anything but the truth, and Vinny Vedecci, Jr., the son of Bill Hader's Italian talk show host. Moynihan's impressions include Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Guy Fieri, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Newt Gingrich.
Moynihan's other television credits include recent memorable guest spots on HBO's "Girls" and ABC's "Happy Endings." On film, he has a supporting role in the upcoming Adam Sandler comedy "Grown Ups 2" and the indie feature "The Brass Teapot." He will also lend his voice to Pixar's "Monsters University," a prequel to "Monsters Inc.," set to release in summer 2013.
Moynihan has appeared in the movies "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 that premiered at Sundance in 2009.
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 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 hails from Eastchester, NY, and lives in New York City. His birthday is January 31.
