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. Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.” In April 2013 the Todd Barry Podcast debuted. It reached #1 on the iTunes Comedy Podcast charts. Todd is also featured in season 3 of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.
