David Herman was one of the original nine cast members of MADtv when the series aired in 1995. Unlike the other original repertory and featured players, he (and Phil LaMarr) was one of the few cast members who came to the show with an established acting career. His seasoned acting and comedy skills helped to add credibility to a cast of predominately unknown new comers. Nearly every week, Herman would introduce audiences to strange but funny characters. Herman's most popular characters included Generation X anchorman Marsh (X News), concerned father Joel Linder (Joel & Connie), Mike Lawson (Incredible Findings) and Joe Don.
Herman also was noted for being a very skilled celebrity impressionist. Among the many individuals from the entertainment world, which Herman lampooned, were Tom Hanks, Woody Allen,Pauly Shore, Patrick Stewart, John Ritter, Larry Flynt, Brent Spiner, Tim Allen, Larry King, Anthony Hopkins and David Duchovny. However, Herman was best known for his celebrity impersonation of U.S. Senator Bob Dole in the 1996 U.S. Presidential Election debate where he faced off, as the new and improved "Bob Dolemite", against U.S. President Bill Clinton (as played by Bryan Callen) and his new running mate, Ice-T.
Herman was a repertory performer on the show for two and a half seasons. In 1997, he left MADtv in the middle of the show's third season to pursue a movie career and other projects.
Aside from MADtv, Herman has had many television, theatrical and movie roles. His television credits include guest starring on the WB's show Angel and FOX's action drama 24.
Although he is primarily a television actor, Herman has appeared in a number of films like Dude, Where's My Car? and Fun with Dick and Jane. Herman is most notable for having a prominent role in 1999's cult hit Office Space, where he played a gangsta rap-loving nerd who just happened (to his displeasure) to be named Michael Bolton and had to constantly suffer questions as to whether he was related to the famous singer. As of March 2006, it has been announced that Herman will appear in the film Idiocracy.
