I’m an actor, writer, and improviser, living in New York City. In 2018, I starred with John Malkovich in a teaser on CBS before kickoff of the AFC Championship game. It won multiple Emmys and Clio awards that year. In 2019, CBS Sports had me back to star with John Malkovich and Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl LIII Opening. In July 2016, I performed at Just For Laughs in Montreal as part of "New Faces of Comedy: Characters." I can be seen recurring on Amazon's The Tick, and truTV’s Adam Ruins Everything, and guest-starring on The Last O.G. on TBS, and What We Do In The Shadows on FX. I can also be seen on the Netflix hits Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, House of Cards, and Orange Is The New Black, as well as Search Party on TBS, Alternatino coming this summer on Comedy Central, The Mysteries of Laura on NBC, and Power on Starz. I have also appeared in the Warner Bros films How To Be Single and in Going In Style alongside Michael Caine. I also co-hosted a show on Comedy Central called Cinema Social Club with Jo Firestone and Seaton Smith.
I performed as an actor on Maude Night at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York on the team Pretty Boys. In 2018 I played everyone’s favorite monster, Martin Shkreli, in Shkreli: Portrait of a Pharma Bro at UCBT Hell’s Kitchen. I also co-star at UCBT with my wife, Ciara Moriarty, in a show we co-wrote called Maybe Baby. I’m a graduate of Boston College originally from Rockville, Maryland. From 2006-2010 I was on the mainstage cast at Improv Asylum in Boston’s North End performing sketch and improv six times a week.
