FRED WILLARD (Bernie Funkyerdoder) received three Emmy® nominations for his roles as Martin Mull's gay lover on Roseanne and for his recurring role on Everybody Loves Raymond.

Other awards include the Boston Society of Film Critic's Award for Best Supporting Actor for his improvisational performance in Best in Show, and an American Comedy Award for Funniest Performance by a Supporting Actor. Willard also received nominations for Best Supporting Actor from the New York Film Critics and The National Film Critic's Society, as well as an Official Selection Award from AFI -- all for the same role as Buck Laughlin in Christopher Guest's satire of rarified world of dog shows and the people and canines who populate them.

Willard appeared in Guest's Waiting for Guffman, which earned him a Screen Actor's Guild nomination for Funniest Supporting Actor and an American Comedy Award nomination. Other film credits include This is Spinal Tap, Roxanne, The Wedding Planner, How High, American Wedding, A Mighty Wind and Anchorman.

On the small screen, Willard co-starred with Martin Mull in Norman Lear's cult classic Fernwood 2-Night, and he had recurring roles on Ally McBeal, The Simpsons and Mad About You. Additionally, Willard appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno more than 50 times.

Willard counts among his numerous legit credits roles in Little Murders, directed by Alan Arkin, and Arf, directed by Richard Benjamin. Among his regional credits are roles in Call Me Madam in Chicago and in Los Angeles roles in the Reprise! series, and the musicals Promises Promises with Jason Alexander and Anything Goes with Rachel York. He had a sold-out run of his "one-man show,” Fred Willard: Alone at Last! (actually a sketch show with a cast of 12), and received two Los Angeles Artistic Director Awards for Best Comedy and Best Production.
