Price was born on July 19, 1974 in Bay View, Wisconsin. He worked at Comedy Sportz for several years in Milwaukee before making it to Hollywood. During his years in Milwaukee, Price appeared for a number of years with the seminal improv troupe The Dead Alewives, several members of which have gone on to entertainment industry acclaim since the group's dissolution.
Price joined the cast of MADtv in 2008 as a feature performer for the show's final season (season 14; 2008-2009 season). Despite not being featured much in episodes, Price had a recurring character (Darnell, the effeminate gay student in Coach Hines' gym class) and some memorable celebrity impressions (Don Knotts' Barney Fife from The Andy Griffith Show, Gordon Ramsey, Warren Buffett, Robert DeNiro, Tim Gunn, and Kevin Jonas of The Jonas Brothers).
