Abed Gheith

Born in the sleepy suburban town of Modesto, California, Abed Gheith grew up surrounded by He-Man toys, Jim Henson properties, and Superman comics. At a young age, he was always using his imagination to play outside by his lonesome. While other kids were getting broken legs and playing sports, he was coming up with ideas and stories and pretending he was an action movie star. Fast-forward to adulthood, Abed moved to Los Angeles at 23 with his friends Justin Roiland and Sevan Najarian. Together, they created the cult Internet sensation House of Cosbys for Channel101.com. This led to writing two episodes of Rick and Morty with his brother, Rashad. Nowadays, Abed works as a story consultant on shows for Disney and Cartoon Network, and in his spare time writes comic books. He is the inspiration for the character Abed Nadir on the NBC sitcom Community and occasionally co-hosts on a podcast called Gone Riffin' with Rich Fulcher.
