David Brian Ury is an American film and television actor, stand-up comedian, and Japanese film, anime, and manga translation specialist. He is a descendant of Ashkenazi Jewish impressionist painter Lesser Ury.

CareerEdit

Ury learned to speak Japanese while at college in Tokyo and has worked as a translator in film, television, and manga, and, as of May 2011, translates and writes English adaptations for Japanese comics, also known as manga (some notable manga include Rave Master Vol. 33, 34, and 35, Basilisk, Genshiken, Gacha Gacha, and The Wallflower). Ury moved to Los Angeles in August 2001 where he began performing stand-up comedy. In the spring of 2003, Ury became the "Ugly Guy" in Fox's Mr. Personality promo commercials. More recently he has appeared as the "Guy who says Yes" or the "Yes Guy" on the Internet viral Verizon parody short.

Cartoonist Keith Knight, a neighbor of his, described Ury's acting career as "Spooge man" and "a cavalcade of reprobates, sleazeballs, derelicts, & weirdos...." Spooge was the name of the character he briefly played in two episodes of Breaking Bad.
