Colton Dunn is an American comedian, actor, writer, and producer.
Colton was raised by his mother, Kari, in St. Paul, Minnesota. He is married to Jessica Stier, with whom he has two children.
Colton has stated:
It’s great. For me, I’m mixed race, so diversity’s just part of my life, and everywhere I’ve been, it’s always been very diverse. I find it more of an anomaly when I watch a show where it’s only white people. I’ve been in that situation for a long time, so it just feels totally normal. I like it. You get to have a ton of different viewpoints and opinions, and I think it is a better reflection of what the world actually looks like.
