Portrays: Darryl WhitefeatherShow debut: "Josh Just Happens to Live Here!"


For me, I was so excited, because it told me — just from what I had seen from the writing so far — it told me my character was going to have a real arc, a real storyline and a romantic relationship rather than just [being] the bumbling boss.

Pete Gardner
Pete Gardner (born Pete Zahradnick) was born and raised in Scarsdale, New York. After graduating high school he went to college at Skidmore, in Saratoga Springs, New York. He moved to Chicago in 1986 to study improv comedy at ImprovOlympic with Del Close. Gardner stayed for several years on a house team until he joined the group ED. Wanting to do more patient, theatrical improv he created "Jazz Freddy" in 1992 at the Live Bait Theatre. He then started directing at Second City while getting various roles in both television and film. In 2013 Gardner auditioned for the part of Darryl Whitefeather for a pilot to a possible series for Showtime called "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend". He lost out on the role to comedian Michael McDonald. However, Showtime passed on the pilot which was ultimately picked up by The CW. McDonald had other commitments and couldn't do the series so Gardner was brought in to replace him. Gardner now lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
