Career[edit]

MADtv[edit]

Hogan joined the cast of MADtv in 1997, as a repertory performer, for the third season. He is remembered for playing characters who could only wrestle the infamous response, "He looka like a man" from Alex Borstein's Ms. Swan, whether it would be a fast food clerk, a police officer, or his Fox Mulder character. Hogan's other characters included Miguel O'Reilly (New at Six), Vonda Parker (Parker Sisters), and public accountant Milton Cladwell. However, Hogan is most remembered for succeeding David Herman as the colorful El Asso Wipo from the Superstars of the Mexican Wrestling Federation Theatre. El Asso struck fear into the hearts of many with his famed one line threat, "I will break like so, WITH MY KNEE!" After one season on the show, Hogan left MADtv at the conclusion of season three.
