Actor and writer ANDY RICHTER (Mort) rose to fame while having the best seat in the house on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien” as O'Brien's sidekick for seven years, beginning with its premiere on September 13, 1993.

Richter and the "Late Night” writing team were nominated yearly for the Emmy Award for Best Writing in a comedy or Variety Series and won the 1997 Writers Guild Award for Best Writing. Richter has made quite a leap off of the late night couch since his departure from the show in 2000.

Re-teaming with co-creator and producer Conan O'Brien in 2007, Richter returned to the small screen in the comedy "Andy Barker, P.I.” Andy Barker, an earnest, hard-working CPA, is mistaken for a retired private investigator when he takes over his vacated office space. Embracing the twist of fate, the modest, gentle-minded accountant dives into his double life with the help of his strip-mall neighbors (Tony Hale from "Arrested Development” and Marshall Manesh from "Will & Grace”).

In 2002, Richter starred in and produced the FOX comedy "Andy Richter Controls the Universe,” in which he portrayed a struggling writer with an overactive imagination. That year, it was named "the funniest new comedy of the spring” by TIME and garnered an Emmy nomination for writing. In 2004, Richter returned to television, and to FOX, on its newest hit comedy "Quintuplets,” playing the father of teenage quintuplets. He has also had memorable cameo roles in such popular series as "Arrested Development,” "Monk,” and – in a hysterical three-episode arc as Christine's unlikely secret affair – on the critically acclaimed series "The New Adventures of Old Christine.”

Richter continues to be very active in the feature film world as well as television.

He was most recently seen in the Will Ferrell basketball comedy "Semi-Pro.”

Other feature film credits include "Blades of Glory”; "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” with Will Ferrell, Amy Adams, Sacha Baron Cohen and John C. Reilly; "If I Had Known I Was A Genius”; "Seeing Other People”; "New York Minute” with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; "Elf,” again with Ferrell, "Dr. T and the Women”; "Scary Movie 2”; and the animated feature "Madagascar” alongside Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Richter attended the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign and Columbia College, where he studied film and video. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
