Comic Horatio Sanz Loses Almost 100 Pounds

Reality Check: SNL's Horatio Sanz Feared Death and the Scale

There's nothing humorous about obesity, something that Saturday Night Live alumnus Horatio Sanz came to realize when he committed to getting healthy and losing weight. The comedian has dropped about 100 pounds and briefly discussed his weight loss with New York Magazine, describing how serious his weight had become: "I never weighed myself when I was at my fattest, because I was scared I might die."

To see what he looks like after losing roughly 100 pounds,


Horatio's awareness that his life was at risk caused him to start exercising and eating better. While he's dropped a lot of weight, he's maintained his sense of humor and said, "I've been trying to come up with a joke about how I've lost weight and I was going to say, 'I stopped putting nuts in my sundaes.'" It's clear from Horatio's big smile that he's proud of his lifestyle changes that allow him to enjoy life, rather than live in fear.
