A generally funny comedian. He's known for being on SNL, where he impersonates Geroge W. Bush and has a variety of acts. Aside from the many, many cameos, he doesn't really fit. He doesn't do standup, and he doesn't have the leading role in anything. He is, however, great at Sketch comedy, like Cheri Oteri, another SNL cast member.

His best known sketches are the Spartan Cheerleaders, the A Night at the Roxbury brother, Dog Show!, Janet Reno, the balding musical middle school singer, Harry Caray, Alex Trebek on Celebrity Jeopardy, George W. Bush, insane dad and a variety of odd man stuff.
