Biography

Chris Gethard was an accomplished actor, noted for his comedic timing in his roles for television shows. In 2000, he began taking improv classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. In 2014, he released his first comedy album, "My Comedy Album." In 2009, he began hosting "The Chris Gethard Show" at the UCB Theatre.

He also appeared in "Parks and Recreation" (NBC, 2008-2015). He continued his comedic performances throughout the early 2000s and the 2010s, appearing on"Big Lake" (2009-2010), "Bored to Death" (HBO, 2009-2012) and "Louie" (FX, 2009-2015). Later, he earned a role in the Will Ferrell smash hit action picture "The Other Guys" (2010). More recently, he tackled roles on "Inside Amy Schumer" (Comedy Central, 2012-) and "Broad City" (Comedy Central, 2013-). Gethard took on film roles in more recent years, appearing in "The Dictator" (2012) and the Sandra Bullock hit comedic action flick "The Heat" (2013).
