Biography

Isaac "Ike" Barinholtz was an American actor best known as a long-time cast member of the sketch comedy show "MADtv" (Fox 1995-2009) and as anarchic male nurse Morgan Tookers on "The Mindy Project" (Fox 2012- ). The son of Peggy and Alan Barinholtz, he was born on February 18, 1977 in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Boston University, initially wanting to become a politician. According to the actor himself, Barinholtz dropped out of school because he loathed his studies and was performing poorly in his classes. He moved back home to Chicago, where he became inspired to take improv classes after seeing an ImprovOlympic performance at The Vic Theatre. After working odd jobs that included a stint at the Chicago Transit Authority, he landed a spot in the sketch comedy company Boom Chicago, where he performed with Seth Meyers, Jason Sudeikis, and Jordan Peele. In those years, he learned to improvise, write sketches and perform in front of audiences and those skills led to his joining the cast of Fox's late-night sketch show "MADtv" in 2002. After his five-year contract with "MADtv" ended in 2007, Barinholtz opted not to return in order to focus on other television and film projects. He played an assortment of characters in the 2008 parody films "Disaster Movie" and "Meet the Spartans." In 2012, he was cast as Ivank Dochenko, a recurring character in Danny McBride's scabrous comedy "Eastbound & Down" (HBO 2009-2013). Later that year, Barinholtz joined "The Mindy Project" as both a writer and a cast member, playing socially awkward nurse Morgan Tookers.
