With his Kevin Bacon score down to only two degrees, Flula Borg is ready to take the world by storm!
Flula was born and raised in Erlangen, Germany, where his entertainment career began as a traditional Bavarian Schuhplattler dancer. He co-starred in Universal Pictures’ Pitch Perfect 2 and appeared in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. He also co-wrote and stars in the independent feature Buddymoon along with his good friend David Giuntoli, who plays Nick Burkhardt on NBC’s Grimm. Buddymoon premiered at Slamdance and won its Audience Award, and also won the Audience Prize at Las Vegas Film Festival, Florida Film Fest, and Mammoth Lakes Film Festival. It was acquired by Orion Pictures and Gravitas Ventures.
Borg relocated to Los Angeles initially to further his music career, but found work as an actor, host, and online personality almost by accident. His engineering degree, combined with his ability to fix his own DJ equipment, landed Borg a recurring role on Spike TV’s Auction Hunters as a German Jukebox Repairman. He has since made regular appearances on TBS’s Conan, Comedy Central’s @Midnight, and Netflix’s Chelsea among others.
His YouTube channel is the home for his popular Flula Vlogs (“Flogs”) that explore idioms, his celebrity interviews, his AutoTunes series (featuring live covers of popular Tunes in his Auto), and much more. His videos have racked up over 80 million views to date and garnered him TV appearances on The Today Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, and ESPN SportsCenter, among others. His video “Jennifer Is A Party Pooper” has been watched millions of times.
Flula has been selected Variety‘s 10 Comics to Watch, one of Hollywood Reporter‘s Top 25 Digital Stars, and won a Streamy Award for Comedy in online video.
