David Herman is an American actor, comedian and voice actor best known as an original cast member of MADtv and for his role as Michael Bolton in Office Space. He is also known for his voice roles on television programs such as Futurama, Brickleberry, Bob's Burgers, and King of the Hill. Herman was one of nine original cast members of MADtv when the series debuted in 1995. Herman was a repertory performer on the show for two and a half seasons. He left MADtv in the middle of the show's third season (1997–98) to pursue a movie career and other projects. Herman's television credits include guest-starring on the WB's Angel and Fox's action drama 24.

David Herman was born on February 20, 1967 in New York City and was raised in Washington Heights. He graduated from the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in 1987, then attended the acting program at SUNY Purchase. Herman appeared in the films Born on the Fourth of July, Lost Angels and Let It Be Me, but he is probably best known for his role as Michael Bolton in Mike Judge's Office Space. Earlier, Herman had joined the cast of John Leguizamo's House of Buggin' in 1994; however, that show was short-lived. When Fox decided to mount a sketch comedy show to replace House of Buggin', Herman was kept on as an original MADtv cast member.

He landed a role as one of the eight original cast members on Fox's late night sketch comedy show MADtv (1995). After spending two full seasons on the show, he left, like most of the original cast. In 1997, he began doing voicework on the Fox animated sitcom King of the Hill (1997), where he met writer/director/actor Mike Judge. Judge was so impressed with Herman that he cast him in a supporting role as Michael Bolton in his critically acclaimed, cult classic 1999 comedy, Office Space (1999). Also in 1999, he began doing voices for the now-canceled Fox animated sitcom Futurama (1999). He currently resides in Los Angeles, California, where he still supplies voices for King of the Hill (1997) and has supporting roles in movies. at present he frequently works with Mike Judge.

Although he is primarily a television actor, Herman has appeared in several films including Dude, Where's My Car? and Fun with Dick and Jane. Herman had a prominent role in the 1999 comedy Office Space, where he played a gangsta rap-loving nerd unfortunately named Michael Bolton who must endure questions about his relationship to the famous singer. In 2006, he appeared in another Mike Judge film, Idiocracy. Herman is also known for his work as a voice actor in cartoons and video games, notably in Futurama, where he provides the voices of many recurring characters (including Scruffy the Janitor, Roberto the psycho robot, Mayor Poopenmeyer, and Professor Farnsworth's rival Ogden Wernstrom), and King of the Hill, for which he voiced incidental characters. His other voice work includes Family Guy, American Dad!, Invader Zim, Father of the Pride (in which he voices Roy Horn), and the Jak and Daxter video game series. He starred as Ubuntu Goode (and other supporting voices) in The Goode Family. Recently, he has been providing voices in Fox's Bob's Burgers and most recently, Herman has starred in the Comedy Central series Brickleberry as self-absorbed park ranger Steve Williams.

Turning to his personal life, he has been married to Christi Champbell and the couple has one child so far. Till the date there is no any controversy or any issue related to his personal life in media which also proves the couple having quite happy time with each other.
