The 25 Most Famous UCB Alumni

4. Ed Helms

After moving to New York City, Helms split his time between studying at UCB, practicing with sketch comedy groups, and working at a post-production facility, where he borrowed equipment to record the voice-over reel that would land him an agent. Years of working in the New York comedy scene paid off when he landed a role as correspondent on The Daily Show in 2005.

After being hired on The Office the next year and appearing in the smash-hit, The Hangover in 2009, Helms was officially a household name. With The Office coming to an end and The Hangover franchise hopefully coming to a close, we look forward to seeing what projects Helms gets involved in with next.
