Chris Kattan is a comedian, actor, and author from the United States. Kattan is most known for his appearances on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Kattan is also well-known for his portrayal of “Bob” in “The Middle.” He has also appeared as “Doug Butabi” in ‘A Night at the Roxbury’ and ‘Bunnicula.’
On October 19, 1970, Christopher Lee Kattan was brought into the world in Culver City, California, by his parents, Kip King and Hajnalka E. Biro. Both of his parents worked in the entertainment industry; his father was an actor and voice actor, and his mother was a model in London. She was even featured in “Playboy.”
When Chris was still a little child, his parents split, and his mother married a Buddhist therapist who later became a monk. His formative years were spent on the island community of Bainbridge, Washington, and it was there that he received his high school diploma in the year 1989. After that, Kattan was brought up in a Zen monastery on Mount Baldy, located west of Los Angeles.
In June 2008, Kattan tied the knot with model Sunshine Deia Tutt in Oakhurst, California. On the evening of Christmas in 2006, he had proposed to her. After only eight weeks of marriage, the couple decided to end their union in August 2008, and the divorce was finalized two months later, in February 2009.
During his time as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” Kattan received criticism for the rigid upper body movement he displayed while performing, first from the judges of “Dancing” and then from social media users.
He then disclosed that almost two decades ago, he had fractured his neck while performing a stunt and that the incident, along with the accompanying required operations, was the reason for his inability to move around freely. It was revealed that the injury was caused by a joke from “Saturday Night Live” broadcast (life, of course) in May 2001. In the sketch, he was parodying the Golden Girls and hurled himself backward on a chair while acting it out. This led to the injury.
Kattan’s show business career started when he became engaged with several comedy troupes in the Los Angeles region, the most notable of which was The Groundlings, an organization whose founding members included Kattan’s father.
Also, during this period, he appeared in several different television shows in minor roles. One of these appearances was in the episode of “NewsRadio” titled “No, This Is Not Based Entirely on Julie’s Life,” in which he portrayed the character of an employee at a photoshop.
Between 1996 and 2003, Kattan was a regular cast member on “Saturday Night Live.” During his time on the show, he became well-known for his eccentric roles, including that of Mango, a feral man, and one of the nightclubbing Butabi Brothers alongside Will Ferrell. Kattan wound up relocating to New York to take a job with “Saturday Night Live.”
The latter role would later serve as the impetus behind producing a feature picture titled “Night at the Roxbury,” in which they would also star. Mr. Peppers, Azrael Abyss, Gay Hitler, Suel Forrester, and Kyle DeMarco were the other noteworthy recurrent characters he created. In addition, he made renowned impressions on celebrities such as Clay Aiken, Ben Affleck, Ricky Martin, Al Pacino, Kid Rock, and Kerri Strug, amongst others.
