Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Huebel's early work was as a sketch actor on shows such as Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Upright Citizens Brigade. He was nominated for an Emmy award for his work as a producer for Michael Moore's Bravo series The Awful Truth and also worked as a segment producer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart .

Huebel was a panelist on the VH1 series Best Week Ever, part of the NetZero "Candidate Zero" campaign during the 2004 election, and known for the "Inconsiderate Cell Phone Man" character, shown at movie theatres before showtime. He also appeared on the HBO television series Curb Your Enthusiasm as well as Fox's Arrested Development. He is the comedy partner of Rob Riggle, a comedian he worked with in the improvisational comedy troupe Respecto Montalban and at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Huebel and Riggle performed a comedy bit in the documentary Super High Me. Among their best known work at UCB, included their long-running two-man show "Kung-Fu Grip", which was eventually showcased at the 2004 HBO Comedy Arts Festival. He was in the movie Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story as Sam Brown with Corddry, Scheer, and Riggle.

Huebel continues to regularly perform at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. He currently co-hosts the live sketch show "Crash Test" with Paul Scheer twice a month, as well as hosting "The Shit Show", in which he gathers comedian friends and other well-known performers to present the worst scenes in films, television and commercials that they have ever done.
