Marty Belafsky (born September 19, 1975) is an American actor/comedian born in Los Angeles, California. He began acting professionally at age 13 and was soon cast as Louis Plumb on the short-lived NBC series Hull High. Shortly thereafter, Belafsky landed the role of Crutchy in the Disney musical film, Newsies. He continued acting through his teens, making appearances in such television shows as The Wonder Years, Great Scott and Step By Step and the film Wrestling Ernest Hemingway.

In 1993, Belafsky took some time off from acting to attend Brown University, where he honed his comedic skills in the improvisation comedy troupe, Improvidence. Following graduation, Belafsky returned to Hollywood.


He started doing stand-up comedy at The Laugh Factory, and was soon discovered by comedy legend, Rodney Dangerfield. Dangerfield hand-picked Belafsky to be his opening act at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and later gave him starring roles in two of his films, Back By Midnight and The 4th Tenor.


Since then, Belafsky has been featured in such films as Pearl Harbor, Evolution, America's Sweethearts, Back by Midnight, Men in Black II, A Mighty Wind and Funny Money.
