After several years performing in New York City, actor/comedian HAYES HARGROVE returned to his comedy roots in Los Angeles, where he had honed his sketch writing and improv skills with the famed GROUNDLINGS. Hayes also trained with UPRIGHT CITIZENS BRIGADE and recently hosted their signature show ASSSSCAT with members of SNL, 30 Rock, and Daily Show.
Hayes is the creator/host of the hit standup show STOP LOOKING AT HER! boasting LA's top comics at the beloved Fake Gallery. Recent highlights include opening for Zach Galifianakis and kicking ass in ROADHOUSE the 30 Minute Musical at the Celebration Theater. Singing, dancing, knife fights, tits. Chaz Bono. Cher came.
Hayes also flexes his acting chops on screens big and small. The AUSTIN FILM FESTIVAL hailed Hayes' first feature film, BEYOND THE PALE, as an “off-beat performance that reminds you of Andy Kaufman.” Hayes was lucky enough to screen not one, but two shorts at CANNES INDIE: FINGERS (co-star and co-producer) and festival darling TAKE MY WIFE. Hayes completed production of two web series, CHESTNUT HILLS and HIGH MAINTENANCE, and the feature films STARLIGHT & SUPERFISH (with Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey) and ART HOUSE, where Hayes stars opposite Greta Gerwig (No Strings Attached) and The Godfather of Punk himself, IGGY POP!
Look for Hayes soon on Comedy Central's Galifianakis-produced BRODY STEVENS: ENJOY IT! Hayes has also appeared as a nerdy terrorist on USA's smash hit BURN NOTICE, as well as a turn opposite Raven-Symoné on her ABC Family sitcom STATE OF GEORGIA. In addition to performing regularly on CONAN, Hayes frequently stars in national commercials including a NISSAN spot with Olympic swimmer and Mensa spokesman RYAN LOCHTE and a recently-banned MILLER LITE spot with Goodfellas Mike Starr and Frank Vincent. Oooh...controversial!!!
