Bio.” He also recently served as the lead voice of Max the dog in “The Secret Life of Pets 2.”

In 2017, he received Grammy and Emmy nominations for his album and Netflix special “Annihilation,” which addresses his own devastating loss and dealing with the unexplainable while making it all painfully funny. In 2016, he won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for his sixth comedy special, “Talking for Clapping,” and a Grammy Award in 2017 for his comedy album of the same name.
