Bobby Moynihan tells Jimmy Fallon about creating Mark Payne for SNL, being Snooki on his birthday

Saturday Night Live cast member Bobby Moynihan made the big trek all the way down the stairs — never trust the 30 Rock elevators — to pay a visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. During his brief stay, Moynihan described his ordeal waiting between his first and second auditions (including a run-in with SNL producer and Fallon announcer Steve Higgins in Rome!), explained where his Mark Payne character came from (sort of), and talked about being Snooki (not only with Snooki herself, which was confusing for Snooki, but also for his 33rd birthday just after midnight during Weekend Update on SNL).

It's go time. Roll the clip!
