He also starred in Raising Dad for a single season, voiced future Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother for nine years and had recurring roles in Entourage and Grandfathered.

The stand-up comedian and Temple University grad was also nominated for a Grammy in 2014 for his comedy album That’s What I’m Talking’ About. The Masked Singer alum was in the middle of a stand-up comedy tour in January 2022 when he was found dead in his Orlando, Florida, hotel room at age 65.
