Algernop Krieger, voiced by Lucky Yates, is the Agency’s technical wizard. He’s always providing the field agent’s with tech and gadgets to help them with their missions and he finds it BORING! He’s so excited that Archer is back and can’t wait to delve into the mind of a man who has crossed the thin veil separating the living and the dead. Also, he totally loves heavy metal.
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Lucky Yates graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from Wayne State University, the Motor City’s finest acting academy.
After kicking around New York City for a couple years, Yates found himself in Atlanta, Georgia, where the players play. It was there that he discovered his love for two things: puppetry, thanks to the Center for Puppetry Arts, and improv comedy, thanks to Dad’s Garage Theatre Company. Using the skills he learned from these fine institutions, Yates has found some sweet success.
He played some grouches in the hit film Elmo in Grouchland, played a zillion characters (including “The Dungeon Master”) in Good Eats with Alton Brown, appeared in several shows on Adult Swim and even introduced high-brow films for FilmStruck (RIP). And then there’s Archer.
Playing “Krieger” (and “Crackers”) is his dream come true, and he figures once it’s over he may as well retire because what’s the point.
