- October 17, 1962
Mike Judge was born in 1962 in Ecuador, but raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and attended University of California at San Diego where he earned a degree in physics.
He worked as an engineer and played bass professionally before MTV picked up his 1992 animated short, Frog Baseball. MTV decided to spin off Beavis and Butt-Head into a show of its own in the 1990’s, with Judge doing the voices of both characters as well as others.
His next project was King of the Hill for FOX TV. Judge expanded into writing and directing his own live-action films, Office Space, Idiocracy and Extract. He’s done voices for South Park, Family Guy, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and acted in Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids movies.
In 2012, Mike resurrected Beavis and Butt-Head with twelve new shows for MTV.
Currently, Judge is a co-creator, executive producer, writer and director for the HBO’s new comedy series Silicon Valley, which debuts April 6.
