Dan Mintz didn't begin his career planning for his breakout role to come playing a 13-year-old girl, but doing so certainly didn't hurt him either. Mintz, best known as 13-year-old Tina, eldest daughter of diner owner Bob Belcher, on the cartoon Bob's Burgers" (Fox 2011- ), began his comedic career much earlier. Mintz was born in April of 1981 in Anchorage, AL but started his comedic career in Boston. Beginning his career as a stand up, he landed on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (NBC 1993-2009) as well as his own half-hour stand-up special, "Comedy Central presents Dan Mintz" (Comedy Central 2008). As a standup comic, Mintz was most well known for his deadpan delivery -- barely acknowledging either the audience or the camera -- and utterly emotionless affect, which was not unlike the late comedian Mitch Hedberg. During this period, Mintz also worked as a writer on TV comedy shows including "Human Giant" (MTV 2007-08), "The Andy Milonakis Show" (MTV 2005-07) and Louis C.K.'s sitcom parody "Lucky Louie" (HBO 2006-08).
