Chris Kattan’s acting prowess has led him to be compared to some of the most respected comic actors of our time, such as Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, and Bill Murray. He is not, however, in any way comparable to these professionals. Kattan’s best-known role to date will likely be his starring turn in the new film Invictus, in which he will play a United States marine Corps captain who is one of the more morally questionable and morally corrupt soldiers assigned to command a group of invading forces. With a multi-dimensional performance that is equal parts comedic genius and military drama, Chris Kattan could very well be playing the part of America’s Most Decorated soldier of all time.
So whether you love Chris Kattan’s acting or his on-screen presence as a comic with a unique style and talent, chances are you are also a fan of Saturday Night Live. If so, do not miss out on your chance to see one of the best comedians of our times perform on one of the most memorable stages around. Chances are good that you will either be glad you saw him or you will wish you had a chance to see him before he was famous.
