Was born at 18 August 1943 (now is 75 years old) in Chicago, Illinois, USA

Offbeat funnyman Martin Mull was born in Chicago, Illinois, the oldestof three children of Betty, an actress and director, and Harold Mull, acarpenter. He was raised in Ohio. The blond-maned, blue-eyed comedianwith the sad, droopy mustache first came in contact with the arts byhoning in on his innate talents as a painter. In order to pay his artschool tuition, he started organizing bands.

At around the same time,he discovered that stand-up comedy was another way to allow hiscreative juices to flow. Martin's early recognition as a humorist ledto a recording contract, and, over the years, he would beGrammy-nominated several times for a number of eccentric comedy albums. His gimmick and allure came in the form of a dry, humorless deliveryand a bland, highly conservative-looking demeanor, which masked a sly,witty and ultra-hip philosophy. Gaining popularity in the 1970s, hefinally broke into TV with the cult soap opera parody "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" (1976) in which he played GarthGimble, a volatile wife abuser whose comeuppance occurred in the formof an aluminum Christmas tree (impaled) in his home closet. Martin wasso popular on the show that he was resurrected in the spin-off series "Fernwood 2 Night" (1977) as twin brother Barth Gimble, who wasa co-host of the town's television program along with'Fred Willard' 's Jerry Hubbard character.

After this peak, Martinbecame a sought-after guest on the talk show circuit, not to mentionvariety specials and TV movies. He tried his hand at producing andstarring in his own sitcom "Domestic Life" (1984) but the seriesfailed. He also added his special brand of merriment to films over theyears, some of them being decent, such as FM (1978) , Serial (1980) , Mr. Mom (1983) and Clue (1985) inthe role of the tweedy-looking Colonel Mustard, while most have beeneither formula schtick or just plain drivel, as in Take This Job and Shove It (1981) , Rented Lips (1988) ,which he produced and wrote, Cutting Class (1989) , Far Out Man (1990) with Cheech & Chong, and Mr. Write (1994) .

Martin's first passion has always been art andthe distinguished multi-media artist's work has been showcased ingalleries throughout the world. He also authored the book "Painting,Drawing and World," which is a compilation of ten years of his work. Mull is married to a composer and musician, Wendy, and they have adaughter. .
