Bio

Horatio Sanz is a Chilean-born American comedian and actor best known as a cast member of the sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, from 1998–2006.

Born in Santiago, Chile, and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Sanz honed his craft in his hometown both as a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade and company member of Chicago's legendary Second City.

When he joined the cast of Saturday Night Live at the beginning of the 24th season, Sanz became the long-running sketch comedy show's first Latino cast member. After only one season, he was promoted from featured player to full cast member.

On the show, he made his mark with original characters ranging from pothead Gobi in Jarret's Room to A/V teacher Mr. Banglian on Wake Up, Wakefield and Uncle Rick to Amy Poehler's Kaitlin.

Popular celebrity impersonations ranged from Aaron Neville and Ozzy Osbourne to the Axis of Evil's Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong Il.

Sanz's recent film appearances include Adam McKay's Step Brothers and Harold Ramis' Year One.

In 2009 he starred as Horatio, Jane's "manny", in the sitcom In the Motherhood. His character communicates with Jane's infant daughter through sign language and believes the baby is the only person who really "gets" him.

In 2010 he had a starring role in the sitcom Big Lake.
