rob-corddry-seeking-a-friendRob Corddry made his debut on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in the spring of 2002 and quickly became one of the most popular correspondents to emerge from the groundbreaking program. He continued with the show through the fall of 2006, and has since made guest appearances.

In 2007, he starred in the television series The Winner, created by Seth MacFarlane and Ricky Blitt. Joining the throngs of many other critically acclaimed shows before it, The Winner lasted only a half-dozen episodes before it was taken off the air.

Launched in December 2008, the 5-minute chapters starred him alongside Jason Sudeikis, Lake Bell, Megan Mullally, and Ed Helms, among others. The series won the Webby Award for Comedy: Long Form or Series and received two other nominations including for his performance. Season 2 then debuted on Adult Swim, making Childrens Hospital one of only two shows ever to make the successful transition from a web series to a television series. Season 3 aired in 2011, and season 4 will debut this year.

He has starred in a host of features, including Oliver Stone’s W., as Ari Fleischer; Steve Pink’s Hot Tub Time Machine, with John Cusack and Craig Robinson; Miguel Arteta’s Cedar Rapids, opposite Ed Helms; Tom Vaughan’s What Happens in Vegas, written by Dana Fox, opposite Ashton Kucther, Cameron Diaz, and Lake Bell; James C.
