Rick Overton has been doing standup comedy since before there were lockable steering columns on cars. Seriously. Rick believes that Comedy shares it's roots with Country Western and The Blues because they're all just complaining to a rhythm. Rick can currently be seen in the comedy film DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS with Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd, recently in Stephen Soderberg's THE INFORMANT starring Matt Damon. He's also Pam's Dad on THE OFFICE in the Wedding Episodes. Yay for On Demand! Someone got something right somewhere. And he recurs on TNT's LEVERAGE as an FBI agent, along with Gerry Downey. He’s been a creative consultant on a sci fi series in 1999 called The Secret Adventures Of Jules Verne, designing all the steam punk technology for the series. Rick had the honor of sharing a couch with Jonathan Winters and Robert Klein on Showtime's THE GREEN ROOM WITH PAUL PROVENZA! When not doing standup comedy, Rick can be seen on local dog park paths getting to visit all the dogs he wants without having to actually own or pay for any of them. Win-win. Rick loves to improvise! He’s been a guest player with a lot of established improv troupes down through the years, Second City, Groundlings, Off The Wall, Bucket O' Snakes, The Transformers etc. He’s been doing two man improv blowout shows with Robin Williams for 30 some odd years. And some odd years they were! But fun! He's also got an Emmy for his writing on HBO's DENNIS MILLER LIVE from the 1996 season.
