Whether you know him best as the former host of E! Television's Talk Soup, the boyish Michael on Showtime's Queer as Folk, or as the bubble-wrap wearing cult leader desperately seeking the "continuum transfunctioner" in Dude, Where's My Car, comic actor Hal Sparks has been cracking up film and television viewers since his feature debut in the 1989 cult classic Chopper Chicks in Zombietown.

Actor/comedian/musician Hal Sparks began his professional career as a teenager in Chicago. As a member of the famed Second City Troupe, his quick wit and affable personality quickly gained him recognition and acclaim. In 1987 he was named the “Funniest Teenager In Chicago” by the Chicago Sun Times.

After a successful run with Second City, Sparks moved to Los Angeles and immediately began performing at numerous comedy clubs, including The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory and The Ice House, as well as at Comic Relief’s American Comedy Festival. Hal is currently lending his voice to the lead character of “Tak” in the Nickelodeon animated series “Tak and the Power of Juju” which airs Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. “Tak and the Power of Juju” follows the teenage jungle boy, Tak, and his fellow Pupununu villagers as they deal with their fate as the unluckiest tribe in the world. He also stars in the magic competition series “Celebracadabra” airing now on VH1.

From 1999 – 2000, Sparks was the host of the Emmy-award winning “Talk Soup” on E! Entertainment Television, winning rave reviews from fans and critics alike. For five seasons, he co-starred as Michael Novotny on the hit Showtime series “Queer As Folk,” based on the controversial and critically acclaimed British series.

In 2006, Sparks appeared on the FOX musical competition series “Celebrity Duets” and hosted the WB reality series “Survival Of the Richest.” He most recently shared judging duties with Rosanne Barr on the Nick at Nite comedy competition series “America’s Funniest Mom” which aired in April 2007.

Hal is also one of the stars of the VH1 hit pop culture series “I Love The 90’s,” “I Love The 80’s,” “The 80’s Strike Back” and “I Love The 70’s.” His television credits include guest-starring roles on “CSI,” “Frasier,” and “One on One.” He also co-starred in the Showtime Original feature “Bleacher Bums,” adapted from the critically acclaimed play of the same name. Hal starred opposite Peter Riegert, Wayne Knight and Brad Garrett in this classic baseball comedy.

In 2004 Sparks appeared in the box office hit “Spiderman 2.” He also co-starred in the 20th Century Fox comedy, “Dude, Where’s My Car?,” “Dickie Roberts, Former Child Star” and “Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town” with Billy Bob Thorton. Sparks also provided the voices for two animal characters, a bee and a fish, in the 20th Century Fox film “Dr. Dolittle 2.” His numerous television appearances include “The Tonight Show,” “Larry King Live,” “Charlie Rose,” “Good Morning America,” “The View,” “Politically Incorrect,” MTV and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He also starred in his own sketch comedy pilot entitled “Here Comes The Neighborhood” and produced comedy segments for Disney Channel. On the stage, Sparks has performed in such productions as “The Glass Menagerie” and “Brighton Beach Memoirs.”

In addition to a busy acting and stand-up career, Hal is an accomplished singer/songwriter/musician. He and his band, Zero 1, have just released their debut album and will soon be touring the country.

A native of Peak’s Mill, Kentucky, Sparks spent several years in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles. He is also an expert in the martial arts with 20 years experience in Shaolin, Kung Fu, Wushu and Karate. More information on Hal can be found at his website www.halsparks.com
