Flula Borg was born and raised in Germany, where he started his performance career as a traditional Bavarian Schuhplattler dancer. After unintentionally winning the Scion National Hypeman contest he relocated to Hollywood to continue growing his music and acting career. Flula turned to YouTube to share his original songs, creative remixes, and exploration of American culture and language, quickly amassing over 780K subscribers, 90 million views, and earning recognition as one of Variety's "Ten Comics to Watch." Several of his videos went viral, including "Jennifer Is A Party Pooper," which has been watched over 30 million times across the internet. His videos led to appearances on The Today Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, Chelsea, and ESPN Sports Center, giving him the springboard he needed to launch his acting career. Flula's first post-Internet appearance came when Spike TV's "Auction Hunters" hired him as the resident German Electronics Repairman. Several roles soon followed, including "Pitch Perfect 2", "Ferdinand", "Alvin and the Chipmunks," and "Buddymoon," which won Slamdance Film Festival.
Several other filmroles followed - including parts in "Trolls 2," "Johnny Fist: The Cowboy of a Making" --which he is co-producing -- among several others. His ever - growing list of small screen credits includes HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Silicon Valley," Comedy Central's "Workaholics" and "@Midnight," Conan O'Brien's frequently excitable guest on TBS's "Conan," the NBC Pilot "Cuckoo" (in which he played, you guessed it ,Cuckoo), FX's "Archer," TV Land's "Younger," a recurring role in J. K. Simmons' dystopian drama "Counterpart," the lead bad guy in "Boss Baby: Back in Business" and as host of the never - before - seen FOX pilot, "So You Don't Think You Can't Not Dance But You Probably Can't".
