Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A master of eliciting raucous laughter, Nick Offerman rose to fame as the mustachioed, government-hating bureaucrat on the comedy "Parks and Recreation" (NBC, 2009- ). The jaw-clenched character with the sarcastic deadpan on the critically acclaimed series was Offerman's ticket to fame, which had eluded him for many years that he had spent guest-starring on numerous hit television sitcoms including "The King of Queens" (CBS, 1998-2007) and "George Lopez" (ABC, 2002-07); on the latter of which he played the unlikely love interest of a woman twice his age. Offerman often collaborated with real-life wife Megan Mullally, who had famously made her impact playing the martini-swilling, sharp-tongued Karen Walker on "Will & Grace" (NBC, 1998-2006). Like his famous spouse, Offerman's sardonic sense of humor earned him a scene-stealing reputation within comedy circles and a long career playing offbeat characters that explored humor in the most unexpected of ways.
