Hall of Fame
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 ASSSSCAT show with members of SNL, 30 Rock, and Daily Show. Currently hosting STOP LOOKING AT HER, his hit standup show featuring LA's top comics at the beloved Fake Gallery, Hayes also opened for Zach Galifianakis at Westside Comedy and performed in ROADHOUSE the Rock Opera at the Celebration Theater. Singing, dancing, knife fights, tits. Chaz Bono. 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 (To Rome with Love) and The Godfather of Punk himself, IGGY POP! Hayes has 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!!!
