Check out our new Bobby Moynihan blog:



Bobby Moynihan


Bobby Moynihan (born January 31, 1977) is an American actor and comedian who joined the cast of Saturday Night Live for its 34th season.[1]

In summer 2008, Moynihan had a supported role in the popular web-series The Line, an online video project funded by Lorne Michaels' production company, directed by SNL head writer Seth Meyers, and starring SNL cast members Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis. He is a regular improv/sketch actor at New York City's popular Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and on many Sunday nights he can be found improvising with fellow SNL alumni (such as UCB Theater co-founder Amy Poehler) in the theater's long-running hit improv show ASSSSCAT 3000. In years past, he submitted scripts to SNL with his comedy writing partner Charlie Sanders. Prior to joining SNL he was a sketch regular on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and a contributing writer on MTV's Human Giant.

Moynihan is now the fifth SNL castmember to be born after the show's premiere in 1975. The other castmembers who hold this distinction are Kenan Thompson, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg (all born in 1978), and Casey Wilson (born in 1980).

Bobby is a graduate of the B.F.A. Acting program at the University of Connecticut. He has been seen in such shows as Secret Slut, Tick. Tick. Tick., Sith in the City, Wake up with Buff Trumuscle, Sketch Cram, The Dogs of St. Christopher, Real Real World, Five Dudes, Asssscat and Showgirls at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Bobby is a proud member of the UCB house team The Stepfathers. Bobby was also a member of the harold teams, The Shoves and Police Chief Rumble. PCR won the 2003 ECNY award for best sketch group, for their work on A Piece of - Pie. Bobby was also a co-founder of the sketch group Buffoons with Charlie Sanders and Eugene Cordero. Bobby is also a writer and performer for the UCB Touring Company. Bobby can be seen on any computer at youtube.com in the short films, Bro Rape (by Derrick) and Other Music (by Human Giant). Bobby has also been seen on VH1's Heartbreakers Hall of Shame, I Love the 30's and I Love the Middle Ages for Comedy Central, Law and Order: SVU and as the voice of Rabbit on Fuse's Empire Square. Bobby has been seen on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and also recently had a blast touring with Horatio Sanz' Kings of Improv Tour. Word.



On Bobby's first episode of SNL, they gave him a skit that he wrote:

New guy Bobby makes attempts at character comedy. If all Bobby has is these gay guy sticks, then he is not going to stand out. We'll see, some of his other skits are pretty funny.

Did he get reccommended from his work for Amy? He must have some great writing if he's been writing for UCB, Human Giant, Conan, and SNL before this.

Bobby joins Andy Samberg and others as a guy younger than SNL.

I thought his sketch was the funniest of the night. (Is "funniest" a word?) Anyways, I like him so far. We'll see what he's got soon enough.

But he'll never compare to the one and only Andy Samberg.

I thought this skit was so funny, his voice is down right funny and the words he uses are funny too. I like him.

In the second episode, I loved his Lenny from Of Mice and Men. So I think he does have a good future ahead of him.

If you dont like Bobby Moynihan then i suggest you eat a bowl of hair, bc you are a dummy.

Ed Price said...

Hmm. I wouldn't be surprised if that was Bobby. Ah, but I'm quick to realize when other people find him funny. The crowd certainly enjoyed it. And I thoroughly enjoyed his Of Mice and Men skit from episode 2. Therefore, check out our new blog...

I think he is ridiculously not funny at any capacity. Every skit he is in makes me gnaw off my hand. Every line he says is brutally humorless. The Pepper skit was horribly written and even more terribly acted. I hope this guy pounds sand and leaves such a funny show in peace. And for the people who think he is funny, I really genuinely feel bad that you find him funny, because obviously anyone with a retarded voice and some lines that make no sense make you laugh. I like good humor and snl usually has it, but this guy has to go.

lol i found this site by googlin "Bobby Moynihan suck". just watched the latest episode and ohh my god am i getting sick of that guy. he usually plays small parts,the one that could be replaced by anyone. and the few times he does he is not funny only annoying. all he does is use his "silly voice". he basically used the same voice during the c-span sketch as ghey guy with the anime t-shirt. he just pulls it to his limit at the annoying gay guy sketch... i just walk away when that comes on, he sucks.

He's a hack over-actor.

Yeah, he sucks. Him and Kenan are the weakest cast members by far. They don't deserve to be on SNL.

Absolutely CANNOT stand him. He's the most annoying cast member I've ever seen, I can't laugh at any skit he worms his way into. Going from having Tina Fey and Amy Pohler to Bobby is a pretty severe downgrade, I hope he leaves soon
