Rob Riggle was born in Louisville, Kentucky and raised in Overland Park, Kansas. He went to Shawnee Mission South High School and then onto the University of Kansas. He graduated with a B.A. in Theater & Film. After serving in the United States Marine Corps, he earned a Masters in Public Administration. Then he finally grew a pair and decided to chase his dream of being a comedian, actor and writer. Rob began his comedy career in New York City while still on active duty in the Marine Corps. He spent seven years taking and eventually teaching classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater before making the move to film and television. Rob’s career includes roles in films such as Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, The Hangover, The Other Guys, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and 21 Jump Street. Rob has also been a fixture in recent years on great comedy television programs. He was on Saturday Night Live and then became a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart before going on to create some of the funniest character roles on television today in shows including The Office, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Gary Unmarried, NTSF:SD:SUV, Wilfred, New Girl and Modern Family. Rob has also had his own stand-up special on Comedy Central, and will soon be seen every Sunday during football season as part of Fox’s NFL pregame show.
Jennifer Aniston, Elizabeth Banks, Eva Longoria and Fred Armisen are just a few of the hot starlets that Paul Rudd has been paid to kiss. Not bad for a kid from Shawnee Mission West. After attending the University of Kansas, Paul studied acting at LA’s Academy of Dramatic Arts and the British Drama Academy at Oxford. His breakout role in 1995’s Clueless featured Paul and his very own KU cap. Later films, such as Wet Hot American Summer, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Role Models, I Love You, Man, Dinner for Schmucks, How Do You Know, and Wanderlust, have showcased his comedic range, which swerves from sweetly sincere to disconcertingly goofy. Recently, Paul starred in Judd Apatow’s This is Forty—a sort-of-sequel to Knocked Up—and opposite Tina Fey in Admission. In addition to his film work, Paul returned to the Broadway stage last winter, along with fellow Kansan Ed Asner, to star in Craig Wright’s Grace. Paul’s television credits include his role as Phoebe’s husband on Friends and working with his Wet Hot American Summer co-star Amy Poehler in last season’s Parks and Recreation. This past May, Paul completed filming on the much-anticipated Anchorman 2, due out in theaters in December.
If you’ve caught his references to the Vikings on Saturday Night Live, you know Jason Sudeikis is a proud graduate of Shawnee Mission West, where he starred on the basketball and forensics teams. Jason honed his comedy skills at ComedySportz and Second City before being called up to SNL as a sketch writer, where he’s just finished his eighth season as a featured player. He’s also made his mark in television in the recurring role of Floyd opposite Tina Fey in 30 Rock and in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Portlandia and HBO’s Eastbound and Down, as well as host of the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. Jason’s films include The Rocker, Going the Distance, A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses, and The Campaign. He has also done voice acting for television series such as The Cleveland Show and Robot Chicken and the soon to be released animated feature film Epic. Later this year you can see Jason star alongside Jennifer Aniston in We’re The Millers, and opposite his fiancé and fellow Big Slicker Olivia Wilde in Relanxious.
