Biography

A popular comic talent on North American television since the early 1990s, Will Sasso gained his widest audience as one of the most versatile performers on the sketch comedy series "MADtv" (Fox, 1995-2008), which led to a career in feature films. Sasso's larger-than-life persona made him ideal for lampooning such figures as Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, as well as actors Robert De Niro and Chris Farley, among others. The series afforded him guest shots on various other shows, as well as small roles in comedy features, including Christopher Guest's acclaimed mockumentary "Best in Show" (2001). After leaving "MADtv" in 2001, Sasso floated between small screen and feature assignments, though finding few quality projects until he was tapped to play Curly in the big-screen update of "The Three Stooges" (2012). Its somewhat surprising runaway success provided Sasso with not only his first substantial film role, but also a genuine and long-overdue shot at movie stardom.
