Actor and improviser Horatio Sanz was born in Santiago, Chile and raised in Chicago. As he got older, Horatio made a name for himself on the improv stages around town. Horatio’s improv prowess led to an eight-year tenure as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. During his years on the show, Horatio was a part of some famous sketches, including “Debbie Downer” and the legendary “Cowbell” sketch.
Horatio continues to perform improv today, and hosts his own podcast, The Hooray Show with producer Chad Krueger. This Comedian’s Life talked to Horatio about his I Dream of Jeannie-inspired nickname, his SNL audition, and how he got arrested in the name of comedy.
