Birth Place: San Francisco, California

Erinn Hayes is a prolific American television actress who best known for her roles one the comedies "Childrens Hospital" (Adult Swim, 2008-2016) and "Kevin Can Wait" (CBS, 2016- ). Born and raised in San Francisco, all throughout her teens, Hayes dreamt of becoming a professional actress. Thus, when it came time to enter college, she enrolled in the drama program at the University of Colorado Boulder.

After graduating from the university with a bachelor's of fine arts degree in performance, Hayes moved to Hollywood to pursue her fledgling acting in earnest. Within a few years she nabbed a recurring role on the short-lived improvisational comedy show "On the Spot" (The WB, 2003), which allowed Hayes to hone her comedy chops in front of the camera. That show was abruptly cancelled after 5 episodes, but an undeterred Hayes continued to land guest spots on highly-acclaimed shows like "Will & Grace" (NBC, 1998-2006, 2017- ), "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006) and "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2005- ).

Then in 2008 Hayes nabbed her breakout TV role as Dr. Lola Spratt on the absurdist comedy series "Childrens Hospital," which allowed her to appear alongside such comedy heavyweights as Rob Corddry and Ken Marino. In 2010 Hayes landed a recurring character on the Emmy-nominated comedy-drama "Parenthood" (NBC, 2010-15). Hayes appeared on six episodes of the series, and soon after went on to add a few movie credits to her repertoire, with roles in "It's a Disaster" (2012), "They Came Together" (2014) and "A Better You" (2014).

With her acting career on the rise, Hayes landed a starring role, alongside the popular comedian Kevin James, on the CBS comedy "Kevin Can Wait" in the fall of 2016. Hayes played James' wife on the series throughout the entire first season. However, after the first season finished its run in the spring of 2017, it was revealed by the network that Hayes would not be returning for season two of the series; her character was revealed to have died in the season two premiere. Ironically, Hayes' next TV job came when she replaced actress Eliza Coupe on the second season of the comedy "Wrecked" (TBS 2016- ).

After appearing in Zoe Lister-Jones' indie comedy "Band Aid" (2017), Hayes joined the cast of "The Dangerous Book for Boys" (Amazon 2018- ).
