Gelman is perhaps best known for his role as the rather irregular Mr. K, opposite Matthew Perry on NBC’s Go On. He was most recently seen in his latest special for Adult Swim, Dinner with Family with Brett Gelman and Brett Gelman’s Family which was a follow up to last year’s Dinner with Friends with Brett Gelman & Friends. The ubiquitous Gelman can also be seen reprising his role as AJ on the FX sitcom Married, going in to production for Season 2, this Spring.
On the big screen Gelman was seen last year in several independent comedies, including Awful Nice and Flock of Dudes. Augmenting his own experience behind the scenes, the Gelman-produced short film Gregory Go Boom, about a paraplegic man who leaves home to be on his own, recently won the Short Film Jury Award for U.S. Fiction at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
A native of Highland Park, Illinois, Brett Gelman earned a drama degree from University of North Carolina School of the Arts before heading east to pursue a career on Broadway. While in New York he discovered the Upright Citizens Brigade and spent eight years developing his comedic oeuvre, landing a viral hit as half of the rap duo Cracked Out and eventually grabbing the attention of Funny or Die, and the website’s co-founder Will Ferrell, with his performance art parody One Thousand Cats.
Migrating to L.A. in 2008, Gelman has since been in high demand. He recently starred opposite Chris Elliott on three seasons of the Adult Swim live-action cop parody Eagleheart and has appeared on a breadth of other TV series including those for HBO (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bored to Death, Funny or Die Presents), NBC (The Office), MTV (The Inbetweeners) and FX (The League), among other broadcast and cable networks. His diverse work in feature film has included roles in the 2013 biography Jobs, the recent indie comedy Someone Marry Barry, the comedy romance Watching the Detectives, and the Columbia-distributed comedies The Other Guys and 30 Minutes or Less.
A staple in the sphere of digital entertainment, he regularly contributes his writing and performing skills to Funny or Die, making celebrities uncomfortable as host of his series Mr. Celebrity, among other pieces. Brett Gelman also makes frequent appearances on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast as well as his own, Gelmania.
Along with The Chris Gethard Show, Gethard can also be seen opposite Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson as Todd on the Comedy Central series Broad City and recently appeared on season 3 of Inside Amy Schumer in the critically praised “12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer” episode.

On the feature film side, Gethard was featured in the 2013 blockbuster comedy The Heat starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and the 2010 smash hit The Other Guys, featuring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.
Gethard is also a prolific standup comedian and was named one of Variety’s Ten Comics to Watch in 2010. He has appeared on Comedy Central’s The Half Hour performing his standup special and has performed at such notable festivals as Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, Lollapalooza, Just for Laughs in Chicago and Montreal, San Francisco’s Sketchfest, and more. In April 2014, Gethard released his first comedy album entitled My Comedy Album, which debuted on the Heatseekers Billboard chart.
