Paul Sheer as Andre | The League on FX
Paul Scheer plays "Andre," who was the punching bag of the group in high school. Now that he’s a well-established plastic surgeon and is by far the most successful...absolutely nothing has changed. His friends still pick on him, get into his head, and rattle him into bad trades and stupid mistakes. At the end of last season, Andre lost his restaurant, but won the Shiva, and the Laguna Beach house that came with it. The fact that it burned down seconds after he won it has not deterred Andre from celebrating “The Year of the Dre.”
Scheer can be seen in the spoof comedy The Hotwives, playing two different roles throughout the season that now follows a new cast to Las Vegas. He also serves as an Executive Producer on the series. Scheer was last seen in the hit comedy NTSF:SD:SUV, a series about a clandestine team of government agents working together to protect San Diego. He created, co-wrote and executive produced the series. Scheer may be best known for his work on the hit sketch comedy series Human Giant, which he co-created and wrote alongside Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel. Additionally, Scheer recurred on the Golden Globe® and Emmy® award-winning 30 Rock, as “Donny”, the head page. His other recent memorable guest-starring appearances include Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, Drunk History, Burning Love, Adventure Time, Happy Endings, Party Down and Children’s Hospital. Scheer was also seen telling the Knock-Knock Joke of the Day alongside Jack McBrayer on the wildly popular series Yo Gabba Gabba.
Venturing into the digital space, Scheer created his own podcast “How Did This Get Made?” which celebrates and tries to make sense of questionable films in cinema. The podcast is consistently featured in the top 10 comedy podcasts on iTunes. Scheer also launched a web series called the “ArScheerio Paul Show,” where he re-creates interviews from Arsenio Hall’s original show. The web series was voted USA Today’s Top Viral Hit of 2014 and awarded a 2015 Honoree Webby for Best Individual Performance Online Film & Video. Scheer co-hosts “Crash Test” a live special streamed on Vimeo, in which Scheer and Rob Huebel tape on a moving glass bus, based on the highly popular UCB Show, with appearances by Aziz Ansari, Rob Corddry, Aubrey Plaza, Jack McBrayer, Natasha Leggero, among others. Scheer also produces the web series titled “SCHEER-RL,” in which he recreates “TRL” episodes, honoring Carson Daly’s honorable run as host of the MTV show. LA Weekly named Scheer one of the most interesting people of 2010 and he has been on Variety’s “Comics to Watch” list as well as AP Magazine’s “Favorite Comedians” list.
Scheer currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress and screenwriter, June Diane Raphael and their son.
