Film and television
At age 12, Crowder provided the voice for the character Alan "The Brain" Powers on the popular children's TV series Arthur. In 2006, at age 18, Crowder became the youngest performer on the Just for Laughs comedy festival, breaking the previous record set by Chris Rock at 19. This led to appearances on XM Satellite Radio. Later he won the national “So You Think You’re Funny” MySpace Comedy Contest. He regularly appears on the Fox News shows Red Eye, Hannity, and Fox & Friends.
He starred as Blake in the film Bend & Break and as Doug Moore in To Save a Life, and appeared as "Jace" in an episode of the TV series Greek. He has also done voiceover work in films.
Crowder espouses conservative political views and addresses topical issues through his frequent postings on YouTube, at Pajamas Media's PJTV, and at Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood blog (see below). Crowder's videos address current events with humor and comic exaggeration. His works have, on various occasions, ridiculed celebrity political opinion, satirized gun control, and voiced opposition to illegal immigration.
Crowder was featured on Hannity's America and discussed his displeasure with the Canadian health care system. In a video titled "ObamaCare," Crowder used a hidden camera to investigate Canadian health clinics, which he criticized for being inefficient and expensive.
