David Herman was born on February 20, 1967 in New York and raised in Washington Heights. He graduated from the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in 1987. Then attended the acting program at SUNY Purchase. Herman appeared in the films Born on the Fourth of July, Lost Angels and Let It Be Me, but he is probably best known for his role of Michael Bolton in Mike Judge's Office Space. Later, Herman joined the cast of John Leguizamo's House of Buggin' in 1994; however, the show was short-lived. When FOX decided to mount a sketch comedy show to replace House of Buggin' , Herman began working on MADtv. Herman is featured in Artie LangeÃ¢â?¬â?¢s memoir Too Fat to Fish, and is credited as saving Lange's life by driving him to the hospital after Lange tried to commit suicide.
