Daniel Mark Pudi (born March 10, 1979) is an American actor. He is best known for his role as Abed Nadir on the NBC sitcom Community (2009–2015), for which he received three nominations for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and one nomination for the TCA Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy. Since 2020 he has starred as Brad Bakshi in the Apple TV+ comedy series Mythic Quest. He played the lead role in The Tiger Hunter, a comedic and warmhearted independent film surrounding the immigrant experience directed by Lena Khan in 2016 and funded through a Kickstarter campaign. His short film, Running, which he wrote himself, follows Pudi as he sets out on a mission to solve the puzzle of his father and finds himself instead on a complex, funny, and vulnerable journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
