Is Bobby Moynihan the biggest Lost fan?

To call Bobby Moynihan a “Lost” nerd would be an understatement. The “Saturday Night Live” cast member is an obsessive fan of the mind-bendy sci-fi show, which [came to an end], as well as the proud owner of all six seasons of the show on DVD, a plethora of “Lost” action figures — both in and out of their boxes — and a Dharma station jumpsuit.

To demonstrate his love, Moynihan donned said jumpsuit for the final segment of the Upright Citizen’s Brigade’s salute to “Lost”... The evening began with a short taped message from Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse (where have these guys not been this past week?), followed by a set of “Lost”-themed sketches, some hilarious, some not so much. Towards the end of the evening, Samm Levine (forever Neal Schweiber from “Freaks and Geeks” to us) stopped by to riff on his guest star spot from earlier this season, in which he played a clerk at a Mr. Cluck’s Chicken Shack franchise. In his sketch, he pretended to pitch a network executive about possible “Lost” spin-off shows involving his character — “Cluck My Dad Says,” anyone?

The final comedian to perform was Moynihan, who didn’t perform a sketch so much as emotionally narrate a slideshow of his relationship with “Lost” over the past six years. He warned the audience he might cry, as he showed pictures of himself with his memorabilia, ranging from a full spread of his “Lost” trading cards to a picture of himself with his “Lost” board game in his shower.

He also showed off pictures of himself with Darlton, Michael Emerson, and Jorge Garcia, screenshots of how he’s managed to work “Lost” references into various “Saturday Night Live” sketches, from asking for Rose’s seat number during an airplane sketch to wearing a Dharma sweatshirt during Jon Hamm’s sign-off when he hosted the the show. Moynihan said his on-air “Lost” plug led to both a personal and Twitter acknowledgement from Lindolof, and after Lindelof and Moynihan became Facebook friends, the former sent the latter a full set of the sold-out, limited edition posters featured on Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear. If that’s how epic “Lost” nerd-dom is rewarded, we wouldn’t want to live any other way.


I bet you Bobby put together the UCB Lost show.
