    Early life

    DeVine was born in Waterloo, Iowa, to Dennis and Penny DeVine. He graduated from Millard South High School in Omaha, Nebraska in 2002. He attended Orange Coast College along with friend and fellow cast member Blake Anderson. He studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, and later moved to Los Angeles where he began working as a stand up comedian and actor. In June 1995, when he was 11 years old, he was hit by a 42-ton cement truck while walking his bike across the street, resulting in multiple fractures to both his legs that required multiple surgeries over three years; it took two years for him to learn to walk again.

    Career

    In 2006, DeVine and friends Blake Anderson, Anders Holm, and Kyle Newacheck formed the sketch-comedy group Mail Order Comedy. Although they toured together live, the group found greater success on websites such as Myspace and YouTube. The G4 series Attack of the Show! featured "Wizards Never Die", a music video by Mail Order Comedy (as "The Wizards"), in April 2008. Purple Magic, a music album by "The Wizards" containing 14 tracks, was released on April 1, 2009. Comedy Central's original series, Workaholics premiered on April 6, 2011, and stars DeVine, Anderson, and Holm and co-stars Newacheck, all of whom also serve as series creators and executive producers.

    DeVine had small roles in Mama's Boy (2007) and National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus (2009). He had a recurring role on the television series Samantha Who?. He also appeared on an episode of the Fox show Traffic Light (2011). In season 4 of Community (2013), he played a small role as William Winger, Jr., Jeff's half-brother. In the first episode of Arrested Development's fourth season, he played an airport ticket attendant alongside his Workaholics co-stars. He co-starred as Bumper in the 2012 musical comedy film Pitch Perfect. For this performance, he won a Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Villain and one nomination for Choice Movie Breakout. DeVine has appeared in SimCity video game trailers as "The Mayor".

    DeVine is the voice artist for the character Pizza Steve in the Cartoon Network animated series Uncle Grandpa, which premiered on September 2, 2013. He stars in his own Comedy Central series, Adam DeVine's House Party, which debuted in October 2013. He also appears in a recurring role on season 5 of the ABC network sitcom Modern Family as Andy, the Pritchett family's nanny.
