Chris Kattan            

Comedian & Actor; Best Known for "Saturday Night Live"

The sharp-featured "Saturday Night Live" funnyman who crafted such finely tuned characterizations as Mango and Mr. Peepers on the long-running comedy sketch show, Chris Kattan has followed the familiar SNL path into feature films with such efforts as A Night at the Roxbury (1998) and Corky Romano (2001).

Born in Southern California and raised in Seattle, Kattan later attended college at the University of California at Northridge, constantly turning up in numerous theatrical productions during that time. Becoming involved with the SNL breeding ground comedy troupe The Groundlings after college, the aspiring comic refined his comedic skills until the legendary late-night comedy staple came calling.

Joining the SNL cast in March of 1996 as a featured player, Kattan soon earned his keep with his hyper and sassy delivery consistently drawing laughs while combined with his outlandish characterizations. Kattan was featured for seven seasons until he left the show in 2003.

Kattan has appeared in other popular television shows such as IFC's Bollywood Hero (2009) and ABC's sitcom The Middle (2009-2014). Kattan has also done voice work for both Voltron and Bennicula (2016-2018).

In May 2019, Kattan released his first book, Baby Don't Hurt Me: Stories and Scars from Saturday Night Live.
