Birth Place: Chicago, Illinois

Comedian and actor Matt Walsh became best known for his small but memorable appearances in some of the top grossing comedies of the early 21st century, as well as for co-founding the iconic Upright Citizens Brigade theaters and school.. Walsh was born in Chicago, Illinois on October 13, 1964. He played football in high school and majored in psychology at Northern Illinois University, but he gravitated toward comedy performance after graduation. He began taking improv classes in his native Chicago, performing at Annoyance Theater and ImprovOlympic. His experience in the comedy world introduced him to Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, and Amy Poehler. Together, they founded the Upright Citizens Brigade in 1990, a sketch and improv troupe that went on to become one of the most respected in the comedy industry. Walsh starred in the "Upright Citizens Brigade" (Comedy Central 1998-2000) television show, beginning his long list of appearances on comedy series and movies. Walsh appeared in many of his famous friends' films, including "Old School" (2002), "The Hangover" (2008), and "Ted" (2012) alongside such stars as Will Ferrell, Seth MacFarlane, and Zach Galifianakis. He moved on to directing with "High Road" (2011), an improvised indie film about a weed dealer. In 2012, he landed one of his best recognized roles as the long-suffering Mike McLintock in the political satire "Veep" (HBO 2012-).
