David Schrader is a writer/filmmaker and sometimes reluctant actor with a background in stand-up, sketch, improv, and alternative comedy. He received instruction from some of the best Second City alumni at Bang! Improv and iO West, including David Razowsky, Evan Gore, Suzy Nakamura, George McAuliffe, Theresa Mulligan, and Peter and Aliza Murrieta.
Feature credits include the 90's slacker comedy NoHo, the horror film Bloodline (Lionsgate), and the upcoming experimental horror/comedy Mary Tyler, Millennial (2021). He has created a wide range of short subjects, such as the Spike Jonze-endorsed parody, Being Ozzy Osbourne (with Christy Stratton Mann), and those made under Hybräu Productions, a company he co-founded with Matt Friedberg in 2015, Mercy No Mercy, Come and Knock: The Other Ray Charles (L.A.

Schrader has written one novel, Exile in Hawaii, which he considered so good, he saw no reason to ever write another. Published in 2018, his first comic book, Baby Badass, quickly became a cult hit, with Volume 2 set to be released in 2022. He lives in Los Angeles, CA with his amazing Chef wife and activist, Alejandra, their brand new baby boy, Chriss Alejandro, and one-hundred-pound dog, Broley.
