Todd Barry

New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-
playing “Third Conchord” on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourke’s deli boss in 2009
Oscar winner The Wrestler, and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced,
measured, and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan
self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies
a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who
seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.
Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan
O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and two Comedy Central Presents specials, and his latest one hour
Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todd’s resume also includes such hit TV shows as Louie,
Delocated, Bored to Death, Tim and Eric, Chappelle’s Show, Sex and the City, and even Sesame Street.
Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillips’s Road Trip, Louis CK’s Pootie Tang, and
Mitch Hedberg’s Los Enchiladas. You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver's right hand man in Amy
Heckerling's Vamps, and as Paul Rudd's co-worker in David Wain's Wanderlust. Internationally he has
performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreal’s
Just For Laughs Festival, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and Kilkenny, Ireland’s Cat
Laughs Festival.
Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium
Energy, Falling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon
and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival’s Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as
one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onion’s A.V. Club, which declared Medium
Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade.

“He doesn't suffer fools, and fortunately for his comedy his definition of ‘fool’ doesn't discriminate.” –
“Acerbic wit, deadpan delivery and wickedly smart punchlines.” – Time Out New York
“Barry is so beautifully arid he is positively parched.” – London Evening Standard

prepared schtick.” – The Age, Melbourne
