Todd Barry is one of the few people who are hilarious AND adorable. For most people, it's one or the other. Todd is both. Hilarious AND adorable.
Todd Andrew Barry was born on March 26, 1964 in the Bronx, NY. He got a BA in English at the University of Florida. Todd Barry first performed comedy in 1987 at Coconut's Comedy Club in North Miami, Florida. However, before he was in comedy Todd worked as a substitute teacher, tennis court maintenance, a clerk at a VD clinic, and a drummer. Yes, he really was a clerk at a VD clinic.
Todd was a Jury Award winner (for stand up comedy) in the 1998 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. Todd has been a guest on nearly every late night show you can think of, including three appearances on "The Late Show with David Letterman," ten appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," NBC's "Late Friday," and Comedy Central gave him his own half hour special on "Comedy Central Presents." Not enough for you? Then how about this...
His acting credits include HBO's "Larry Sanders Show" and "Sex and the City," ABC's "Spin City," and a featured role in the movie "Road Trip." He has also had a recurring character role on Comedy Central's "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist" as the voice of, well... "Todd." And yes, he really was a clerk at a VD clinic.
Once you've seen a live performance from Todd, it's certain you'll agree that he is both hilarious and adorable...ok, and a little twisted.
