He also costarred in Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty and appeared in The House, alongside Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, as well as The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter alongside Danny McBride and Josh Brolin.
Some of his television credits include the TBS series Ground Floor, as well as the NBC series Undateable, ABC’s Modern Family, F/X’s The Comedians, and the original series Those Who Can't for TruTV.
Scovel’s stand up has been featured on Comedy Central, CONAN, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. His second album, Rory Scovel Live at Third Man Records, was released in 2013 and was recorded live in Nashville.
