It was a long and windy road that led Regan Burns to his current status as an actor/sketch comic/commercial spokesman/game show host. During his junior year at Radford University in Virginia, he made the wise decision to relinquish his gymnastics scholarship and pursue the life of a thespian. Most of this decision was based on the fact that gymnasts don't get residual checks. After graduating with a theatre degree, Regan attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Upon his completion, Regan said, "California is the place I want to be." So he loaded up his truck and...Well, you know the story.
Since arriving in Los Angeles, Regan performed on the stages of The Groundlings, Acme Comedy, HBO Workspace, Attic Theatre, West End Playhouse and the Zephyr. However, his big break in the biz that is show didn't occur until the Omnipop Talent Agency took a chance on a guy whose biggest credit was that he once was on a set in which he thought he saw Jon Voight. The rest is television history.
Regan's long list of TV guest appearances includes "Weeds," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Without a Trace," "CSI," "Supernatural," "Las Vegas," and Back to You, just to name a few. He's also had recurring roles on "Reno 911," "Sonny with a Chance," "Titus," "Once and Again" and "Rodney." A veteran of 100 plus commercials, Regan starred in famous campaigns for Capital One, Burger King, and Sobe Life Water. He hosted two seasons of the Spike TV game show "Oblivious" and three seasons of AMC's "Cinemania," and he appeared regularly as a personality on AMC's "The Movie Club" and PAX-TV's "Balderdash." Regan also co-hosted GSN's pilot of "Annie Duke Controls the World" and starred in the pilot of "Craig Ferguson's Really Big Improv Show" for CBS. In 2007, he starred in a season of the improv/sitcom hybrid, "Halfway Home" for Comedy Central. He currently stars in Disney Channel's "Dog with a Blog."
