He’s been a part of the show for the past 23 years. He has also appeared in a variety of films including The Birdcage, Godzilla, America’s Sweethearts, Along Came Polly, Run Fatboy Run, The Smurfs, and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. Azaria played “Jay Nichols” on the television series Herman’s Head, “Craig Schaeffer” on If Not for You, “Nat Ostertag” on Mad About You, and “David” on Friends. He is often referred to as “the freakish mimic” by his friends due to his ability to mimic any voice after hearing it only once.
