Horatio Sanz (born June 4, 1969) is a Chilean-American comedian and actor, best known as a former cast member of Saturday Night Live.


Sanz, the youngest of three sons, was born in Santiagomarker, Chilemarker to Sylvia and Carlos Sanz. He grew up in the North-Pulaski neighborhood on Chicago's West side. Star struck at an early age, he honed his skills in his hometown Chicagomarker, Illinoismarker, where he performed at various theaters, including The Court Theater and The Second City. While in Chicagomarker, Sanz was also one of the founding members of the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) sketch comedy and improv troupe. Sanz can still be seen regularly performing with the sketch troupe at their long-running hit improv show "ASSSSCAT 3000", at both of the UCB's popular comedy theaters located in New York City and Los Angeles.

Sanz most recently acted in the ABC sitcom In The Motherhood. He played the role of Horatio the "manny" (male nanny) in early 2009. Sanz is currently writing on comedian Nick Swardson's upcoming sketch-comedy show, Pretend Time with Nick Swardson, which is expected to air in early 2010 on Comedy Central.

In November 2008, Horatio surprised fans with his first public appearance in almost a year, after having lost 100 pounds. "I’ve been eating better,” he admitted. Sanz quipped, “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's been working out, too. In June 2009, he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and claimed that much of his weight loss was due to the fact that he had stopped drinking alcohol.

Saturday Night Live

Sanz joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in September 1998. He was SNL's first Latino cast member. At the beginning of Saturday Night Live'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, Saturday Night Live announced that the show was dropping Finesse Mitchell, Chris Parnell, and Horatio Sanz from the show.

Sanz was the fourth cast member in SNL history to be born outside of North America after Tony Rosato, Pamela Stephenson and Morwenna Banks. Sanz returned to SNL as a guest on February 3, 2007, appearing as Elton John, and again on November 3, as presidential candidate Bill Richardson.
