As one of the hottest young stars in comedy, Seth Rogen has gone from scene-stealing supporting character to bankable leading man in just a few short years. Born and raised in Vancouver, Rogen got his start in stand-up comedy as a teenager, and by the time he was 16, he finished second in the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest. Rogen moved to Los Angeles and was cast on two critically-acclaimed but short-lived television series executive produced by Judd Apatow, “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared.” Rogen also worked as a staff writer on the latter and after its cancellation, joined the writing staff of Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Da Ali G Show,” for which the staff was nominated for an Emmy.
Apatow helped Rogen transition to film by giving him a plum supporting role and co-producer credit on the Steve Carrell-starrer “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” a sleeper hit that ultimately grossed more than $109 million domestically. Rogen and Apatow re-teamed with Rogen starring opposite Katherine Heigl in the 2007 smash “Knocked Up” that grossed more than $148 million in domestic box office receipts. Also in 2007, Rogen struck gold with a supporting turn in the teen comedy “Superbad,” which he co-wrote with friend Evan Goldberg.
Seth Rogen’s deadpan comedic style has earned him praise from both moviegoers and critics. By letting TSE arrange for a Seth Rogen appearance or Seth Rogen speaker engagement, you’re guaranteeing your event will include big laughs.
