About Edward Parker Helms

Ed Helms is a former stand-up comedian whose four-year stint as a Daily Show correspondent laid the groundwork for a successful onscreen career. Atlanta Georgia-native Ed Helms has since gone on to keep fans in stitches as abrasive cubicle drone Andy Bernard on the hit television series The Office. He also appeared as an undead flesh-eater who only wants a girlfriend and equal rights in the popular comedy short Zombie-American (2005).

It was after a stint at Oberlin College in Ohio that Helms first began working at the stand-up circuit, with regular appearances at some of the top comedy clubs in New York City which quickly gained him a loyal fan base. Helms' poker-faced sense of humor was an ideal fit for The Daily Show, and with only a handful of credits to his name, the rising star quickly became a regular fixture on the show. In 2006, shortly after wrapping a four-year stint on the Emmy Award-winning Comedy Central faux-newscast, Helms turned up as a member of the Stamford branch on The Office -- a series that also helped launch former Daily Show correspondent Steve Carell to stardom. When the Stamford branch eventually merged with the Scranton branch in the series, Helms' angry ass-kisser became a regular fixture on the show -- his decidedly short-fused character quickly becoming a foil for office prankster Jim Halpert (played by John Krasinski). Having previously studied improvisational comedy with the Upright Citizens Brigade, Helms became a semi-regular fixture at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City while simultaneously preparing for appearances in the Carell comedy Evan Almighty and the stoner-friendly sequel Harold and Kumar 2.
