Comedy Showcase: Actor/Director B. J. Novak in Early Standup Set


Born and raised in the Jewish community of Newton, Massachusetts, B. J. Novak has built a career as an actor, writer, comedian, producer and director.

Novak is one of the writers and executive producers of The Office (2005–2013), in which he also played Ryan Howard, one of the regular characters in that sitcom. His father is William Novak, who co-edited the best-selling Big Book of Jewish Humor.
