Paul Brittain (born February 16, 1977) is an American actor and comedian who was a cast member of Saturday Night Live from 2010 to 2012 for only two seasons (seasons 36 and 37).

On SNL, his most memorable recurring characters included Lord Cecil Wyndemere (a childlike, 48-year-old lord), Goran "Funky Boy" Bogdan (a Croatian stand-up comic who punctuates his jokes with "Oooh, funky boy!") and "Sex Ed" Vincent (a low-rent sex counselor who holds seminars in shady hotels). His popular celebrity impressions included Ron Paul, James Franco and Johnny Depp.

Brittain's uncle, Bob Newhart, hosted SNL in its fifth (1979–1980) and 20th (1994–1995) seasons, making Brittain the second SNL cast member to be the nephew of a celebrity who hosted SNL more than once (after Jason Sudeikis, whose uncle is semi-frequent 1990s host George Wendt).

Brittain exited abruptly halfway through Season 37, making his final appearance on January 14, 2012. The timing of his departure was due to his decision not to renew his contract with NBC.[1]
