Andrew "Andy" Daly (born April 15, 1971) is an American actor, comedian, and writer who is best known for playing Principal Terrence Cutler in the HBO comedy series Eastbound & Down. He is also noted for his two seasons as a cast member on Mad TV and for his recurring roles on television programs such as The Life and Times of Tim, Delocated, and Comedy Bang Bang.
Daly was born in Mount Kisco, New York, and was raised in New Jersey. He graduated in 1989 from Ridgewood High School in Ridgewood, New Jersey and then attended Ithaca College, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Drama.
After college, Daly moved to New York City where he performed, along with Andy Secunda, in the sketch comedy duo The Two Andys, which appeared at the 1999 Aspen Comedy Festival. He was also a part of the Mainstage company at Chicago City Limits, NY's longest running show, as an improvisational actor.
When the Upright Citizens Brigade relocated to New York from Chicago in 1996, Daly was one of the first New Yorkers to study improvisation with the group and performed in many of the earliest shows produced by the UCB. He was a member of the long-form improvisation group The Swarm, which was assembled and directed by Amy Poehler.
During the late 90s, Daly appeared frequently in sketches on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and lent his voice to Robert Smigel's "TV Funhouse" cartoons on Saturday Night Live.
In 2000, Daly joined the cast of Mad TV. He was a featured player in the show’s 6th season, appearing in 13 episodes. He returned as a full cast member the following season. His recurring characters were Dr. Adrian Ganzer ("Come On Down") and Scott Oglevee (Real Mother****ing Talk) and he did impressions of Bill Maher, Carrot Top, Charlie Rose, Dick Cheney, Don Knotts, Jesse Helms, Pat Sajak, Rick Schroder, and Tony Blair.
Daly has appeared in numerous films, most notably as courtside announcer Dick Pepperfield in the 2008 film Semi-Pro starring Will Ferrell.
