Biography

Though perhaps less well known to audiences than his wife, actress Melissa McCarthy, actor-writer Ben Falcone carved out a respectable career of his own on television and numerous films with and without his spouse, including "Bridesmaids" (2011), "The Heat" (2013) and "Enough Said" (2013). The Illinois native received his initial comedy training with Los Angeles' Groundlings troupe, where he met McCarthy. He labored largely in anonymity through the 2000s, before receiving his widest exposure alongside McCarthy in "Bridesmaids." His own comic talent soon elevated him to guest roles on numerous TV shows, as well as a notable turn away from McCarthy in the critically praised "Enough Said." By that year, Falcone had expanded his c.v. to include writing, producing and directing, which underscored his rapidly advancing status as the second bona fide comedy star in his household.
