Anderson was born in Sacramento County, California and attended Clayton Valley High School in Concord, California. He was ridiculed for his curly hair, so he shaved it off in 1998 because of peer pressure. He later moved to Los Angeles to work with improvisational comedy troupes such as The Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade. While working as a pizza delivery driver, he attended Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, where he met future co-star Adam DeVine.
In 2006, Anderson formed the sketch comedy group Mail Order Comedy with Anders Holm, Adam DeVine, and Kyle Newacheck. He appeared on several episodes of the Fox show Traffic Light and has had small cameos in an episode of HBO's Entourage. He was also in National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus (2009) and an episode of the Fox show House. He has appeared on many YouTube shows such as Mail Order Comedy (for which he writes and produces all of the material) and Dungeon of the Nutsack. He has starred on the Comedy Central show Workaholics since 2011. He has had roles on Community, Arrested Development, and Loiter Squad. He also tours the country to perform his stand-up comedy.
