Comedian / Actor -- Satuday Night Live
Hammond's many impressions that he has brought to "SNL" are applauded by television critics and viewers alike, for their accuracy and range. He has portrayed Captain Lou Albano, Lamar Alexander, Rene Angeli, Tom Brokaw, Bill Clinton, Sean Connery, Bob Costas, Al D'Amato, Rodney Dangerfield, Phil Donahue, Sam Donaldson, Hugh Downs, Richard Dreyfus, Jerry Falwell, Dennis Franz, Frank Gifford, Newt Gingrich, Rudolph Giuliani, Al Gore, Jesse Helms, Alfred Hitchcock, Jesse Jackson, Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel, Jay Leno, Rich Little, Trent Lott, Jon Lovitz, Verne Lunquist, Jerry Mathers, Issac Mizrahi, Jack Nicholson, Don Pardo, Jack Perkins, Regis Philbin, Dan Rather, Marge Schott, Robert Stack, Billy Bob Thornton, John Travolta, Donald Trump, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Clarissa Dickson Wright.
When he's not doing impressions, Hammond will occasionaly appear in sketches. He has played the recurring roles of both Joe Blow's father on "The Local News" and a prankster who pops up from time to time on different Spanish television shows.
Born and raised in Melbourne, Florida, Hammond began doing impressions as a child, but his pursuit of a career in performing only began after graduating from the University of Florida at Gainesville. After college, Hammond lived in New York for several years and appeared in off- and off-off-Broadway productions, in both dramatic and comedic roles. Later, he returned to Florida and honed his skills as an impressionist, performing on local and national radio programs.
In 1996, Hammond appeared as Chris McCarthy in the comedy "Celtic Pride," a movie which co-starred original "SNL" cast member Dan Aykroyd and former "SNL" featured player Damon Wayans.
In April 1997, Hammond was applauded in the media for his dead-on impression of President Clinton during a surprise appearance with the President himself at an event before several thousand government officials and members of the Washington Press Corps.
Hammond made a cameo in the 1998 "SNL" spin-off movie "Blues Brothers 2000," sequel to the "Blues Brothers." The movie, which starred Aykroyd and ten-time "SNL" host John Goodman, also featured former "SNL" featured player Paul Shaffer.
In 1999, he was the voice of Master Little in the animated feature "The King and I." He nabbed the part after director (and veteran animator) Richard Rich saw him on "SNL." For the last several years, Hammond has been performing stand-up comedy and impressions in New York and throughout the country.
His television appearances include "Access Hollywood," "Box Office America," "The Daily Show," "Entertainment Tonight," "Hollywood Squares," "Larry King Live," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," "Late Show with David Letterman," "Later," "LIVE! with Regis and Kathie Lee," "Loveline" (KROQ RADIO), "Oddville, MTV," "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher," "Premium Blend," "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Showbiz Today," "Vibe TV," and "The 1996 MTV Video Music Awards." He has also performed on Showtime, VH-1, and A&E's "Comedy on the Road."
