Life and careerEdit

Zebrowski attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida[2] where he began to perform as a comedian, initially in the group "Oncoming Traffic", later in "Girls Aren’t Funny", which was renamed to "Murderfist", alongside his sister, Jackie Zebrowski.[2] The group had a weekly show in a gay bar, which became notorious for its "wild and out of control brilliance".[3][2]

In 2006, Zebrowski moved to New York City, where he continued to perform as a comedian.[2] From the late 2000s, he had minor roles in TV shows and series such as Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Blue Bloods. In 2010 he had a role in the drama White Irish Drinkers.

Since 2011, Zebrowski has cohosted the horror/comedy podcast The Last Podcast on the Left alongside Marcus Parks and Ben Kissel. The trio also appear on The Last Stream on the Left on Adult Swim and perform live shows throughout the US.[4]

Zebrowski has appeared in both comedic and dramatic films, most notably Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, the Jack Black film The D Train, and the Robert De Niro/Zac Efron film Dirty Grandpa. When discussing these roles Zebrowski said “you have no idea what I bring to movie film.” He has made numerous television appearances, starring in Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell since 2013;[5] and featuring in the NBC programs A to Z and Heroes Reborn.[6] In 2016, he wrote and starred in his own 30-minute episode of the sketch show Netflix Presents: The Characters.[7]
