Rob Corddry

Initially recognized for his work as a smart-aleck reporter on a fictional news program, comedic actor Rob Corddry went on to impress audiences in a variety of roles, both on television and in feature films. After making his television debut with several guest spots on the improv comedy series "Upright Citizens Brigade" (Comedy Central, 1998-2000), the Massachusetts native grabbed considerable attention as a smarmy, inept correspondent on the Emmy-winning satirical news program "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996- ) under the guidance of Jon Stewart. During his four-year tenure on the popular "news" program, Corddry made forays into feature films in such vehicles as the Will Ferrell collegiate comedy "Old School" (2003) before briefly venturing out on his own as the star of the short-lived, Seth McFarlane-produced sitcom "The Winner" (Fox, 2007). Corddry had better success on the big screen, where he expanded his repertoire to include diverse roles in projects ranging from the Ben Stiller romantic comedy remake "The Heartbreak Kid" (2007) to playing Press Secretary Ari Fleischer in Oliver Stone's presidential biopic "W." (2008). As a writer, director and star, he launched the medical spoof "Childrens Hospital" (Adult Swim, 2010-16) even as he continued taking on more prominent acting roles in mainstream features like the raucous comic fantasy "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010). Continually expanding his unique brand of comedy, Corddry enjoyed a prolific and varied career in film and television.
