Kazurinsky started out in St. Louis, Missouri as a copywriter for a department store chain. He was a veteran of The Second City comedy troupe, and was a friend and something of a protegé of John Belushi. Kazurinsky was a fairly versatile player on SNL, even though he clashed often with then-executive producer Dick Ebersol about the show's creative direction.
Among the characters he played:
- Dr. Jack Badofsky: A doctor presenting a list of disease-related puns.
- "I Married A Monkey": A somewhat popular sketch in which he interacted with a live chimpanzee supposed to be his spouse.
- The Iguana: A shy vacationer with a secret.
- Habinagudtym Vishnu Verhere: An Indian Dalai Lama type who answered philosophy questions sent in by the audience.
