He is most known for portraying Jean-Ralphio Saperstein on the NBC sitcom ‘Parks and Recreation.’ In 2012, he joined the cast of the comedy series ‘House of Lies’ as the ambitious and arrogant management consultant Clyde Oberholt.

Ben Schwartz began his career in New York before he moved to Los Angeles, California, to get more opportunities, and it is here that he currently resides.
