Early life and education[edit]

Huskey was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, and did not meet his biological father until he was 17.[1] He attended Charlotte Country Day School for the entirety of grade school graduating in 1987.[1] He attend University of North Carolina at Greensboro graduating with a degree in English and minor in photography.[1] At this time he began to play in a band 'Bicycle Face'.[1]

Huskey later relocated to New York City to attend photo school and worked as a photographer's assistant.[1] He would then meet and later be roommates with Rob Corddry.[1]


Huskey studied and performed improvisational comedy during the start of the original Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (UCB) in New York City and had each of the "UCB4" (Matt Besser, Matt Walsh, Amy Poehler and Ian Roberts) as teachers.[1] From there, he frequently appeared in comedy sketches on Late Night with Conan O'Brien for many years and was a panelist on VH1's Best Week Ever.[1]

At UCB, Huskey was a member of the sketch comedy troupe "The Naked Babies" with comedians Rob Corddry, Seth Morris and John Ross Bowie. He has since worked on Corddry's Adult Swim series Childrens Hospital, playing the role of Chet the creepy EMT worker, as well as alter ego Mark Splorn. Huskey also appeared as correspondent Duncan Birch on the IFC cable news satire The Onion News Network. Other past programs in which Huskey co-starred include the MTV prank show Damage Control and the VH1 comedy series Free Radio. Huskey was also on the ABC sitcoms Selfie and The Real O'Neals. One of Huskey's most memorable early television appearances were in a series of commercials opposite Molly Erdman in a campaign for Sonic Drive-In. They both would later be fired from this role as the result of an The Onion News Network veterans parody he wrote and performed.[1]

Huskey has also made many guest appearances on comedy programs including Community, Parks and Recreation, Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, Worst Week, Happy Endings, Animal Practice, The Inbetweeners, Workaholics, and Veep.
