MATT WALSH (Tim) Matt Walsh returns to television as the creator, executive producer, and star of a new half-hour comedy series "Players", premiering March of 2010 on SpikeTV. Walsh reunites with long time comedy partner Ian Roberts in the series, playing two brothers with opposite personalities who run a sports bar together. Walsh also had a role in the Warner Brothers feature film comedy THE HANGOVER with Bradley Cooper, Heather Graham, and Ed Helms.
Along with Roberts, Amy Poehler, and Matt Besser, Walsh is a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade improv comedy troupe in Chicago. Founded in 1990, The Upright Citizens Brigade is an award-winning performing group and remains a training ground for up and coming, cutting-edge comedians. Walsh has instructed accomplished comedians such as Ed Helms, Rob Corddry, and Rob Riggle. Walsh played the role of Trotter in the troupe's sketch comedy series, which ran for three seasons on Comedy Central. The first two seasons were released on DVD, and in 2008 the UCB released "ASSSSCAT!," an all-new improv DVD that breaks down each sketch for a better understanding of the UCB method. "ASSSSCAT!" features guests Will Arnett, Ed Helms, Kate Walsh, Horatio Sanz, and Andrew Daly. After the success of their television series, the UCB comedy foursome went on to found two highly successful Upright Citizens Brigade comedy theaters located in New York and Los Angeles.
Previously, Walsh produced and starred in the 2006 Comedy Central mockumentary series "Dog Bites Man." He was a correspondent on "The Daily Show" and made regular appearances in comedy sketches on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and MTV's "Human Giant."
Walsh has also made memorable scene-stealing appearances in many popular comedy films over the last several years including I LOVE YOU MAN, ROLE MODELS, STEP BROTHERS, SEMI PRO, and OLD SCHOOL. Walsh wrote and starred in the cult indie-comedy MARTIN & ORLOFF, and consulted on last summer's comedy BRUNO starring Sacha Baron Cohen.
Walsh currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and child.
