New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing "Third Conchord" on HBO's Flight of the Conchords
and Mickey Rourke's deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler
and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced, measured and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview. He's done The Late Show with David Letterman
, Late Night with Conan O'Brien
and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
, starred in two Comedy Central specials and even made an appearance on Sesame Street
. Now, you can see this award-winning stand-up when he brings his Crowd Work
tour to Zanies in Nashville.
