Brad Garrett stars in "How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life" on ABC as Max.

Brad Garrett is best known for playing Ray Romano's big brother Robert on the hit series "Everybody Loves Raymond," earning five Emmy Award nominations and Emmy wins in 2002, 2003 and 2005 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. More recently, Garrett starred in all four seasons of FOX's comedy "'Til Death" and hosted Lifetime's "I Kid With Brad Garrett."

Garrett, raised in Woodland Hills, CA, was born on April 14, 1960. After high school graduation, he began performing his stand-up act at various Los Angeles comedy clubs, getting his start at the Ice House in Pasadena and The Improv in Hollywood. His first appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" at age 23 made him one of the youngest comedians ever to perform on the program.

Garrett's stand-up career then took off, garnering him headlining gigs at national venues as well as opening spots for legends, including Frank Sinatra, Diana Ross, Julio Iglesias, Liza Minnelli and Sammy Davis Jr. In 1989, the Las Vegas Review Journal named Garrett the "Best Comedian" working on the Strip.

Garrett next made his foray into the world of television. His television guest roles range from stints on "Roseanne" and "Mad About You" to his trademark role of the obsessive mechanic on "Seinfeld" (you may remember him stealing Jerry's Saab in order to teach him a lesson about poor auto maintenance).

In its nine seasons, "Everybody Loves Raymond" was a critical and ratings success. Garrett portrayed Ray Barone's (Ray Romano) brother, Robert, the NYPD policeman whose existence was constantly overshadowed by his sports-writer sibling. Their rivalry helped coin the title line, "Everybody Loves Raymond."

Garrett's voiceover work includes giving life to "Fatso," the ghost in the 1995 feature "Casper." He can also be heard as "Dim," the rhinoceros beetle, in the feature "A Bug's Life," and as "Bloat" the blowfish in "Finding Nemo."

Garrett has since been seen on cable TV's "Don King: Only in America." His feature film credits include "George B" with David Morse, which was a finalist at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival; "Suicide Kings" with Christopher Walken; Showtime's "Clubland" with Alan Alda; and director Woody Allen's "Sweet & Lowdown," with Sean Penn and Uma Thurman. Garrett has also guest-hosted "The Late Show" for a sidelined David Letterman.

In 2002, Garrett played Jackie Gleason in the critically acclaimed network television film "Gleason," for which he earned an Emmy Award nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Movie or Miniseries. Garrett starred in the hit comedy "The Pacifier," and on Broadway in Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple." Garrett is heard in the animated film "Ratatouille" and stars in the feature "Music and Lyrics By" with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore.
