Personal Quote:

I feel like it's a dangerous and dark world if 'Sunny' becomes mainstream comedy. If you were to turn on CBS at 8 o'clock on Thursday and see an episode of 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia,' I don't know if I want to live in that world. See more »


Worked as a waiter before his acting career took off and even kept it during the first season of ''It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (2005)''. See more »


Humour from very dark characters and situations. See more »
