Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A versatile improv comedian and comic actor, Scott Adsit was a Second City alumnus who went on to appear in sketch comedy shows such as "Mr. Show" (HBO, 1995-99), and in countless sitcoms and feature films before landing the regular role of producer Pete Hornberger in the NBC breakout comedy hit, "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-13). Prior to "30 Rock," Adsit rose through the comedy ranks, relying on precise comic timing and everyday looks instead of broad characters or impersonations. He cut his teeth on both comedies and dramas, fluctuating with ease between the likes of "Alias" (ABC, 2001-06) and "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-12), to "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO, 2000- ) and "The Office" (NBC, 2005-13). All the while, Adsit made sure to give back to those struggling to make it in show business, both performing and teaching improvisation at IO West.
