Todd Barry (born March 26, 1964) is an American stand-up comedian, actor and voice actor, known for his soft spoken sarcasm and receding Jew-fro hairline.
Barry was born in The Bronx, New York. He received his A.A. degree in English from Niagara Community College. In 1999, his Comedy Central Presents special aired. He wrote, directed and starred in the short film Borrowing Saffron (2002), which co-starred H. Jon Benjamin. He's made a variety of guest appearances on shows like Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, Home Movies, Wonder Showzen, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He also voices a recurring character on Squidbillies. In 2008, he played 'Wayne' in Darren Aronofsky's "The Wrestler." Over the course of six years he made 16 appearances on Dr. Katz, appearing as himself in the first two appearances. He then played recurring character "Todd the video store clerk" and appeared in most episodes in the show's final year. He also played a character in the television pilot Saddle Rash along with Sarah Silverman, H. Jon Benjamin and Mitch Hedberg. In "The Third Conchord", the twelfth and final episode of the first season of Flight of the Conchords, Barry played Todd, a bongo playing megalomaniac, who tries to introduce the highly suggestive song, "Doggy Bounce," to the Conchords' repertoire, and a new band name: The Crazy Dogggz. In September 2010, Barry headlined the comedy stage at All Tomorrow's Parties music festival in upstate New York.
The subject of his show Icky describes the "merciless, un-pitying trouncing he suffered" on alt.fan.conan-obrien, the Conan O'Brien newsgroup, following a guest appearance. His performance generated buzz for its perceived Anti-Gentile bias. He is an outspoken critic of Mexican immigration, going so far as to declare "all mexicans should be deported to Cuba," for which he has since apologized.
In 2010, Barry had a recurring role as a fictionalized version of himself in the second season of the live-action Adult Swim series Delocated. He also has a recurring role playing himself in FX's Louie.
