Biography

Joe Lo Truglio may not have been the flashiest member of the '90s sketch comedy troupe The State, but his amiable goofiness and try-anything approach has served him well. After joining the NYU-based group in the late 1980s, Lo Truglio made the jump from stage to screen, appearing in all three seasons of the group's groundbreaking show "The State" (MTV, 1992-95). Lo Truglio's dry, sarcastic nature found him work as a character actor on such shows as the Comedy Central sketch series "Upright Citizen's Brigade" (1998-2000) before he reunited with many of his former State cast members in the cult summer comedy "Wet Hot American Summer" (2001). After a string of appearances on "Wainy Days" (My Damn Channel, 2007- ), Lo Truglio turned in a memorable role in the blockbuster hit "Superbad" (2007), and produced and starred in the soap opera parody "Horrible People" (My Damn Channel, 2008). With later roles in high-profile comedies like "Role Models" (2008), "Pineapple Express" (2008) and "Wanderlust" (2012), Lo Truglio proved himself a solid supporting player in the midst of comedic heavyweights such as Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd.
