Saturday Night Live cast member from 1998 to 2006, who later appeared on the Comedy Central TV show Big Lake. He has appeared in the films Boat Trip, Step Brothers, and The Dictator and he is best known for his impersonations of Aaron Neville and Elton John.
He acted in theater and performed at the famed Second City in Chicago, which helped to give him a great base of experience which he utilized on SNL.
Sanz joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in September 1998 as the first Hispanic cast member. At the beginning of SNL's 31st season, he was the temporary replacement for Tina Fey as Amy Poehler's Weekend Update co-anchor while Fey was on maternity leave until she resumed her duties on October 22, 2005. On September 20, 2006, SNL announced that Sanz would not be returning due to massive budget cuts that called for Lorne Michaels to either produce fewer episodes or reduce expenses, including the paring of long-standing, highly paid cast members such as Sanz.
Sanz returned to SNL as a guest on February 3, 2007, appearing as Elton John, and on November 3, as presidential candidate Bill Richardson and again on the December 17, 2011 Christmas show as himself in a musical number ("I Wish It Was Christmas Today") and as a member of Beethoven's orchestra ("Beethoven: Meet The Band").
In November 2008, Sanz made his first public appearance in almost a year, after having lost 100 pounds (45 kg; 7 st 2 lb). "I've been eating better", Sanz said. "I've been trying to come up with a joke about how I've lost weight and I was going to say, 'I stopped putting nuts in my sundaes.'" He also says, "I never weighed myself when I was at my fattest, because I was scared I might die'." Sanz says he has been working out, too. In June 2009, he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and said that much of his weight loss was because he had stopped drinking alcoholic beverages.
Sanz was part of the cast of the short-lived ABC sitcom In the Motherhood in 2009, playing the role of Horatio the "manny" (male nanny). In 2010, Sanz and his former SNL castmate Chris Parnell starred together on Big Lake, a Comedy Central sitcom from executive producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. From 2010 to 2011, Sanz was a writer and producer on the Comedy Central sketch series Nick Swardson's Pretend Time.
In 2015, he started his own podcast called The Hooray Show, which features comedy sketches and interviews with his friends in comedy.
He became an American citizen on July 25, 2018 in Los Angeles.
Horatio is the youngest of three sons; grew up in Chicago after moving there from Chile. He has married actress Jenn Schatz, who appeared on the TV series 30 Rock.
Currently, Horatio Sanz is 53 years, 7 months and 25 days old. Horatio Sanz will celebrate 54th birthday on a Sunday 4th of June 2023. Below we countdown to Horatio Sanz upcoming birthday.
