Cole Archer’s Chillout Mix. That’s my son’s mix. He’s ten weeks old, and this is what he listens to: ‘Valerie’ by Amy Winehouse, ‘Everyday People’ by Arrested Development, The Beatles’ ‘Rocky Raccoon,’ and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Atlantic City.’
It’s so hard to work that I feel so lucky any time I get to work.
My wife is an amazing mother – like, top five of all time.
I try to do different things as much as I can. I feel like every actor, there’s a limited number of tricks and go-tos. The real good stuff you can’t get to unless it’s something you haven’t done before. So I try to make sure each thing is slightly different. Unless it’s for the money. Then I don’t care.
I love Billy Joel. I cry sometimes when I hear ‘The Stranger.’ ‘You May Be Right’ may be one of the greatest songs ever written.

I don’t know if you can catch my vibe, but I’m a pretty laid-back guy.
What I love about sketch is that the writing of it is idea-based. It’s not story-based. It’s like, ‘This is a behavior, and we’re going to write, in a small sample, the funniest way to heighten this behavior.’ Sitcoms or movies are about story.
I’ve bombed on stage millions and millions of times. And that’s part of it. You go up with a half-baked idea, and you bomb, and so what? Nothing bad happens if you bomb.

I would never put my kids in front of the camera.
It takes a lot of time to write and put up a sketch show, but that’s part of who I am. I don’t think that ever goes away, that sensibility – especially coming from the Upright Citizens Brigade. That’s just who I am.
My parents were actors. And so I was born in New York City, and when I was 7, they quit acting and went back to medical school at the University Of Chicago.
I would like to work with challenging material. A challenge is good. If it’s good material; it’s a challenge.
‘Entourage’ was a show that existed around wish-fulfillment. People watched it because they wanted to believe they could go on private jets and be hanging out in Hollywood, but as a show, comedically, it was not funny. Not a funny show. It’s funny, ironically, because of how terrible it is.
My heroes were Gene Wilder, Steve Martin, and Martin Short.
I have one. I may get another during the off-season, I might get my son’s name but I’m not sure yet. The one I have is my Hebrew name, which I share with my grandfather, and it’s not the best tattoo.

I would say, as I’m into my 30s, I have become a better friend because I don’t need as much from my friends, and so when you don’t need as much, you can be better at giving.
Anytime I audition for something, it’s always a question of whether or not the people I’m auditioning for understand I’m an improviser and I like to do that, and if they like that or if they just want someone who’s going to do what’s written.

I am what they call a chubby-skinny guy. I appear to be normal and have the look of an in-shape man, but if we were to go to a pool party I would go with my shirt on.
I play guitar, and I’m a decent basketball player – people like to play on my team.
I’ve not gotten so much stuff because I improvise in an audition, but I always feel like, if that’s the case, the reason is because it wouldn’t have worked out anyway with us working together.
Nothing surprises me on ‘Happy Endings,’ because the show – I think one of the awesome things about the show is that it’s so open to doing anything. We could do a genre episode. We have the green light to do whatever we want. Mostly because no one’s watching.
