Bio

Will Sasso is a Canadian comedian and actor best known as one of the recurring cast of comedians on the sketch comedy television series MADtv, from 1997-2002.

Sasso grew up respecting comedy of all styles, thanks in part to an unhealthy relationship with the family television that began when Will was around two or three.

At the age of 15, he landed his first agent and began booking roles in television and film. Before moving from Vancouver to Los Angeles, Sasso starred for five seasons as the quirky teen Derek Wakaluk on the award-winning Canadian dramatic series Madison.

Sasso starred for five seasons on Fox's hit sketch comedy series MADtv, giving TV viewers a reason to stay up late with characters like the accident-prone handyman Paul Timberman and offbeat impressions of Bill Clinton, Kenny Rogers, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Segal and Randy Newman.

After a successful tenure with the show that began in 1997, Sasso decided to leave the late-night staple in 2002.

Moviegoers know Sasso from his roles in more than 30 feature films, including Best in Show and A Mighty Wind, both directed by Christopher Guest; Drop Dead Gorgeous; Beverly Hills Ninja starring the late Chris Farley; and The Hot Chick, starring Rob Schneider and produced by Adam Sandler, with whom Sasso previously worked on Happy Gilmore.

Sasso has also appeared in the feature films National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus; College Road Trip, starring Martin Lawrence; and Southland Tales, starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. He also appears in the films Lower Learning and For Christ's Sake, which Sasso produced under his Lord Mucker Entertainment banner.

On television, Sasso has guest starred on CSI, October Road, Entourage, Two and a Half Men, Brothers, The Cleveland Show, Family Guy, Neighbors from Hell and $#*! My Dad Says, among others.
