Tituss Burgess          

Emmy-Nominated Actor Known for "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"

Athens native and University of Georgia alumnus, Tituss Burgess, has found his way to the Netflix stage.

As a student at Athens' Cedar Shoals High School, Burgess aggressively pursued his passion for theater. After graduating from UGA with a Bachelor of Arts in music, Burgess headed to New York City where Broadway welcomed him with open arms. He made his Broadway debut in the musical "Good Vibrations" as Eddie in 2005, and appeared in "Jersey Boys" in 2005 as Hal Miller. He originated the role of "Sebastian the Crab" in the musical "The Little Mermaid" in 2007 and went on to play Nicely-Nicely Johnson in the revival of "Guys and Dolls" in 2009.

Burgess soon found his niche in television acting, as well. Since 2009, he has guest starred in several TV series, including "The Battery’s Down," "A Gifted Man," "Blue Bloods," "30 Rock" and "Royal Pains."

While these minor roles made a major impact on Burgess’ career, Netflix has the potential to now launch him into super stardom. Over the last several years, Netflix has caught the attention of millennials and serial TV watchers with its popular web-released TV series, such as "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards." Netflix's success is sure to continue with Burgess’ newest project, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," starring "The Office's" Ellie Kemper.

The series is the work of comedienne and writer Tina Fey. Tituss Burgess plays Titus, Kimmy's roommate, a talented singer who works as a robot in Times Square.
