Father Guido Sarducci is a fictional character made famous by comedian Don Novello. A chain-smoking priest with tinted eyeglasses, Sarducci worked in the United States as gossip columnist and rock critic for the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano and, later, as Assistant Managing Editor for The Vatican Enquirer.
Novello created the Sarducci character in the early '70s, with several notable TV appearances on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Father Sarducci soon became widely recognized and loved as a result of his many appearances on Saturday Night Live in the late 70s, during which time Novello was also a writer for the show.
Most of Father Sarducci's appearances on SNL were on Weekend Update. But he also was featured in some memorable commercial parodies such as “Bocce Ball My Way.”
