ROB CORDDRY (M) made his debut on THE DAILY SHOW WITH
JON STEWART in the spring
of 2002 and quickly became one of the most popular correspondents to
emerge from the
groundbreaking talk show. He continued to "educate" audiences with his
sketches through the fall of 2006, and has reprised his role in guest
appearances scattered through the years since.
He moved to Los Angeles following his run on THE DAILY SHOW and in 2007 Corddry
starred in the Fox sitcom THE WINNER created by FAMILY GUY
MacFarlane and Ricky Blitt. Joining the throngs of many other
critically acclaimed shows, THE WINNER lasted only a half-dozen
episodes before it was taken off the air.
In a serendipitous turn of events brought about by the need for
to continue work during the infamous 2007‐-008 writers' strike,
Corddry was one of the first to
create original "television-esque" programming for the Internet and
captured the attention of
Warner Bros. TV early on. The web series CHILDRENS HOSPITAL, spoofing
the hijinks of medical
drama genre such as GREY'S ANATOMY and ER, launched in December 2008.
"webisodes" starred Corddry (also the creator, writer, and oft-times
director), SNL's Jason
Sudeikis, Lake Bell, Megan Mullally, and Ed Helms (among others). The
series won the Webby
Award for "Comedy: Long Form or Series" and received two other
nominations: "Best Individual
Performance"(Corddry) and "Comedy: Individual Short or Episode."
The second season of CHILDRENS HOSPITAL debuted on Adult Swim a year
later, making it
one of the first shows ever to make the successful transition from a
web-series to a television
series. Despite the unspoken network rivalry, CHILDRENS HOSPITAL won
the award for "Best
Sketch Comedy/Alternative Comedy" at the first ever Comedy
Central-hosted Comedy Awards.
CHILDRENS HOSPITAL received its first Emmy nomination and beat programming from
30 ROCK Lisa Kudrow (WEB THERAPY) and his alma mater THE DAILY SHOW to
win its first
Emmy Award in the new category of Short-Format Live-Action.
Appealing to acclaimed actors across the board, the cast of the latest
boasts the talents of Malin Akerman, Nick Offerman, MAD MEN's Jon
Hamm, television legend
Henry Winkler, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, THE LEAGUE'S Nick Kroll and
Paul Scheer, Kate
Walsh, and many others. Season Five will debut in the summer of 2013.
In what have perhaps become some of his busiest years to date, in
addition to his
ubiquitous work on CHILDRENS HOSPITAL Corddry is also starring in and
feature films. In June he starred alongside Steve Carell and Keira
Knightley in Focus Features'
SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF HTE WORLD. In September starred in the dark
comedy BUTTER opposite Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman for The
The Sundance Film Festival of 2013 will feature three films in which
making him one of the few actors in history of the festival to have as
many starring roles in showcased films. Included in the festival are

scribes Nat Faxon and Jim Rashand; IN A WORLD, written, directed by
and starring Lake Bell
(along with Demetri Martin); and HELL BABY, the horror comedy from

Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.
In April 2013, Corddry can be seen in Michael Bay's PAIN AND GAIN with Mark
Wahlberg. He also voiced a character for The Weinstein Company's first
ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH, planned for release later in the year.
In 2010 Corddry starred in the ensemble comedy feature HOT TUB TIME MACHINE for
MGM and director Steve Pink. The story follows three grown men
(Corddry, Craig Robinson,
and John Cusack) as they visit the hot tub where they once partied,
discover it is now a time
machine, and travel back to their raunchy heyday in the mid-1980's. He
also turned a cameo
appearance in CEDAR RAPIDS alongside Ed Helms and John C. Reilly.
Having been long-embraced by the film community, Corddry has appeared
in dozens of
comedy features in addition to his television projects, notably OLD
SCHOOL, SEMI-PRO, THE HEARTBREAK KID and BLADES OF GLORY. He has also
been featured in the buddy comedy
WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, HAROLD &
KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY, and in a more dramatic capacity as

the life and presidency of George W. Bush, W. Corddry has appeared on
