ROGER BART’S tremendous presence extends to both the small and big screens, as well as to the stage.

He is perhaps best known for originating the role of ‘Carmen Ghia’ in Mel Brooks’ Broadway musical, The Producers, for which he received Tony and Drama Desk nominations.  He revised this memorable character for Universal’s theatrical adaptation of The Producers as well. 

Bart has worked extensively in television and currently recurs on a number of television series including the Netflix series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Epix series, Graves, the Netflix series, Grace and Frankie, as well as the Showtime series, Episodes. Other television credits include Revenge, Desperate Housewives and 30 Rock.

In 2016, Bart starred in the independent film Speech & Debate, which is a film adaptation of Stephen Karam’s acclaimed off-Broadway play.  Prior to that, he starred in Trumbo, directed by Jay Roach and starring Bryan Cranston (who was nominated for an Oscar) and John Goodman. 

Other film credits include Last Vegas (CBS Films), Law Abiding Citizen (Overture), Harold & Kumar 2 (New Line), The Producers (Universal), American Gangster (Universal) and The Stepford Wives (Paramount).  He also voiced the role of Young Hercules in Disney’s animated feature, Hercules.

In addition to his Tony Award and Drama Desk nominations for his role in The Producers, Bart also won the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical as “Snoopy” in the revival of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, directed by Michael Mayer. He also starred in the musical, Young Frankenstein, as the title character, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein.’ Based on the smash hit 1974 film, Young Frankenstein was the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks.
