Creator: Brian Doyle-Murray

Brian Doyle-Murray (born October 31, 1945) is an American comedian, screenwriter, actor and voice artist. An alumnus of the long-running American sketch show, Saturday Night Live, Doyle-Murray was a feature player during the show's fifth seasonnote , a writer for Jean Doumanian's critically abysmal sixth season (1980-1981), and was a feature player and Weekend Update anchor during Dick Ebersol's first full season as executive producer and show runner [season seven; the 1981-1982 season], making Doyle-Murray one of a handful of SNL cast members who worked with all three executive producers note .

Some of Doyle-Murray's celebrity impressions (most of which he did when he returned as a feature player during the show's seventh season) include Colonel Tom Parker (Elvis Presley's manager), televangelist Jerry Falwell, punk rocker Sid Vicious, Albert Einstein, and Twilight Zone host and show runner Rod Serling. Doyle-Murray didn't have any recurring characters, but he was a Weekend Update anchor (paired with either Christine Ebersolenote  or Mary Gross). Unlike his brother, Bill, his time as a Weekend Update anchor wasn't that memorable (mostly because Weekend Update on SNL stopped being funny and/or worth-watching when Charles Rocket was hired and wouldn't reach its former glory again until Dennis Miller came along in 1985note ).

He is the older brother of actor/comedian Bill Murray and has acted with him in several films, including Caddyshack, Scrooged, Ghostbusters II and Groundhog Day.

Murray is known for his gravelly voice and has voiced The Flying Dutchman on Spongebob Squarepants, a small role as the Grandfather on Lloyd in Space, Coach Gills on Cartoon Network's My Gym Partner's A Monkey, Captain K'nuckles on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and as Maggie's dad on The Buzz on Maggie. He has also appeared as "Salty" in the Family Guy episode "A Fish out of Water". He is the voice of Jack the barber on King of the Hill. He also voiced the mayor in Ghostbusters: The Video Game and the Grandfather in The Goode Family. He was also the Cool Old Guy Jacob in Motorcity.

Doyle-Murray also plays Don Ehlert in The Middle.

He also played Clark's boss Frank Shirley in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
