A household name and comedy star, Schneider is well known for his trademark blend of character and comedic acting, and has become one of the most popular touring acts in comedy. He created and stars in the Netflix docu-series “Real Rob,” which focuses on the day-to-day hijinks of his life. The series marks the first time any actor has ever written, produced, starred in, directed and financed an entire season of a television show.
Schneider first came to prominence on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” along with friends Adam Sandler, Tim Meadows, and David Spade. He’s a three-time Emmy winner as part of SNL’s writing staff. He has also starred in some of the top comedy features of the past 20 years including “Grown Ups,” “You Don’t Mess With The Zohan,” “Big Daddy” and “The Waterboy.”
Additionally, Schneider starred in the movie “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” which was the second highest grossing DVD in the U.S. in 2000, along with “The Hot Chick” and “The Animal.”
Hammond, who hails from Melbourne, Florida, is known for being one of the most prolific comedians of his time. He holds the title for being the longest running cast member on SNL. He frequently tours comedy clubs and theaters boasting a number of brilliant impressions in his act.
Recently, Hammond has seen a massive resurgence in national notoriety due to his uncanny impression of President Donald Trump. From his first impression of Donald Trump on SNL 15 years ago, his imitation has evolved along with all of the extreme changes in Trump’s public appearance.
In addition to his SNL appearances, Hammond has been seen in a number of feature films and television shows, including “Weiners” and “Bob Bailey’s Disco Balls.” He also starred opposite Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in “New York Minute” and in “Scary Movie 3” and “Scary Movie 6.”
Kattan is one of the longest serving cast members on SNL. In the eight years he has starred in the landmark late night program, he’s become best known for his characters “Mango,” “Mr. Peepers” and one of the “Butabi Brothers,” opposite Will Ferrell, which was such a hit that the sketch was adapted into the 1998 cult classic “Night at the Roxbury.”
One of the most famous alumni of Los Angeles’ The Groundings Theater, Kattan starred as a series regular in the ABC hit series, “The Middle” and recently had memorable appearances in Adam Sandler films, “Hotel Transylvania” and “The Ridiculous 6.”
Mitchell is best known for his three-year run on SNL, creating hilarious characters like "Starrkeisha" and impersonating actor Morgan Freeman and rapper 50 Cent. He has also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with host Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, and starred in the hit urban movie, “Who's Your Caddy.”
A multi-faceted actor, comedian and author, Mitchell can also be seen on the Disney Channel's hit show, “A.N.T. Farm,” which also streams on Netflix where he plays Officer Darryl Parks, aka "China's Dad."
