Artie O'Daly was raised in Diamond Bar, CA - one of the seemingly few Los Angeles-bred actors currently living in Los Angeles.
As a child, visits to the sets of The Love Boat and Perfect Strangers created not only his earliest memories but also his desire to act. He grew up writing plays starring his fake best friends (a.k.a. his stuffed animals) and making short films starring his real best friends (a.k.a. his pets).
During his time in college (or, in this case, "colleges" - Fullerton College, the Acting Conservatory at SUNY Purchase and CSU Fullerton), he honed his content creation skills by writing, producing and starring in two original musicals while earning his SAG card the old-fashioned way (background actor vouchers on any show that was popular in the early 2000s).
He has gone on to become "that guy who played that part on that one episode" of shows like Modern Family, I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson, Superstore, Silicon Valley, The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, (not to mention a fan-favorite episode of Gilmore Girls, which also happens to be one of his favorite shows,) and recurred on series such as General Hospital (his most recent appearance earned him Soap Hub's Performer of the Week) and Nickelodeon's The Haunted Hathaways.
Commercially, he has appeared in campaigns for national brands Dairy Queen, Chevy, and Nizoral.
As a content creator, he is best known as the writer, director, editor and star of the hugely popular comedy series Bad Boy featured on the Artie O'Daly YouTube channel, amassing a combined 10+ million views over its twenty-seven installments.
He is also the co-creator and co-star of the short form comedy series Successful People, the second season of which was featured on Amazon's "Trending TV" list the week of its release.
His current project is Sorry I'm Weird, a series of sketch comedy shorts where someone is always a bit off or dealing with someone who is.
