‘Saturday Night Live’ alum Chris Kattan to appear at RubberDucks game in Akron
Get ready to bob your head.
“Saturday Night Live” alumnus Chris Kattan will turn Canal Park into a techno club during a summer promotion for the Akron RubberDucks.
The comedic actor, who starred in “A Night at the Roxbury” with fellow “SNL” star Will Ferrell, will appear in person for “A Night at the Ballpark” at the July 30 game.
Kattan and Ferrell appeared in a number of late-night sketches and a big-screen movie as socially awkward, silk-suited brothers who frequent the Roxbury nightclub and bob their heads in unison to the Haddaway hit “What Is Love.”
“What is love?” Haddaway sings. “Oh, baby, don’t hurt me. Don’t hurt me. No more.”
Kattan’s other memorable characters on “Saturday Night Live” included Mango and Mr. Peepers and a slew of celebrity impressions from Al Pacino to Geraldo Rivera to David Lee Roth. He also appeared on four seasons of “The Middle.” His film roles include “Corky Romano,” “Undercover Brother” and “House on Haunted Hill.”
The RubberDucks, a Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians, will play host to the Harrisburg Senators at 7:05 p.m. July 30.
A “What Is Love” bobblehead featuring Kattan’s likeness will be given away to the first 1,000 fans at the game.
