Executive summary: Yet another SNL fat guy
Sanz was born in Chile, but grew up in Chicago, where he was a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, a comedy improv group that eventually moved to New York, opening a theater in a space that had once been a strip club. While performing with UCB, Sanz was once arrested when he led the audience into the street chanting "start the revolution!" Sanz has also performed with The Court Theater and Chicago's Second City.
He joined the supporting cast of Saturday Night Live in 1998, and was promoted to full-fledged cast member the following season. On SNL, he's had recurring roles as Louie Anderson, Bun E. Carlos, Larry Flynt, Rosie O'Donnell, and Meat Loaf. He is the show's first Latino cast member.
Sanz played a tiny role in the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street, bigger roles in Road Trip and The New Guy, and co-starred opposite Cuba Gooding, Jr. in the quick-sinking Boat Trip.
