Rob Corddry

Rob Corddry was born on February 4, 1971 in Weymouth, Massachusetts. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1993. Rob's most notable achievement is his work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but he has also appeared in the movies Old School (2003, credited as Robert Corddry) and Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story (2004). Corddry also voices the animated Devil character on Cartoon Network's "Weighty Decisions" series (alongside fellow TDS correspondent Ed Helms). His pieces for The Daily Show have frequently included references to Boston, Massachusetts, which he considers to be his hometown.

He trained in improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC, performing regularly with the sketch comedy group Naked Babies. He has appeared as "Wrench", a star detective on a fictional television series in FOX's Arrested Development. He is the older brother of freshman Daily Show correspondant Nathan Corddry.

According to an interview in the UMass Amherst alumni magazine (Fall 2005 written by Ian Aldrich), Corddry planned to study journalism when he arrived in fall 1989. He stuck with the major for just two days. English became his official major instead, but by his sophomore year, he focused much of his attention on drama classes and plays including Torch Song Trilogy, Ten Little Indians, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Romeo and Juliet, and Reckless. He moved to New York City in January 1994. His early paying jobs included being a security guard at MOMA and handing out menus for a mexican restaurant. He eventually landed acting jobs, including a yearlong tour with the National Shakespeare Company. In spring 2002 he was asked to audition for the The Daily Show.
