With his father, John Krall, being a Naval aviator, and his mother, Yung Krall, working as a spy for the CIA and FBI, Lance spent most of his young life moving from country to country, state to state. After retirement, the family finally settled in Atlanta, Georgia.After getting his BA in Film and Theater at Georgia State University, Krall helped found The Whole World Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. From 1993-2000, Krall got in his acting and comedy chops performing in, and directing, hundreds of improv shows and scripted plays.In 1999, Krall was spotted by an International Creative Management talent agent, and was signed shortly thereafter. After an eight year run with The Whole World Theatre, it was time for Krall to move out west. In late 2000, Krall moved to Los Angeles and was quickly cast as a series regular on Steve Martin's variety show, "The Downer Channel," for NBC. After a disappointing four episode run, Krall took it upon himself, just as an experiment, to shoot his own sketch comedy show. With the help of his old troupe in Atlanta, Krall shot a thirty minute pilot named, for a lack of a better title, The Lance Krall Show. Satisfyed with the result, he shelved it, awaiting the right opportunity to show it off.In the interim, Krall was cast in the feature "Made Up," directed by Tony Shalhoub, and later directed and starred in "Party Animals," a short film about a group of Hollywood wannabes that was an official selection in the Slamdance Film Festival.In 2003, Krall was cast as Kip in the reality show parody, "The Joe Schmo Show." His popularity on that show gave Krall the open door he needed, and once he presented his homemade pilot to the enthusiastic executives at Spike TV, it was only a matter of days till The Lance Krall Show was green-lit.Lance Krall is managed by Rory Rosegarten of The Conversation Company, LTD.
