Additional credits include The Other Guys, 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street, Dumb and Dumber To, and most recently Universal’s Night School with Kevin Hart. In two strong dramatic turns, Riggle also recently appeared in Warner Bros.’ war drama 12 Strong and Open Road Films’ Midnight Sun, the latter of which he received critical acclaim for his performance.  

For his voice-over talents, he earned a 2012 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for Disney’s “Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice.”

Riggle recently co-commentated ABC’s new extreme mini-golf series Holey Moley, produced by NBA All-Star Stephen Curry. He also just wrapped up Holey Moley Season 2.

As he broke into comedy, Riggle was still on active duty with the United States Marine Corps, which he initially joined at the age of 19. Rising through the ranks, Riggle served in various countries including Albania, Kosovo, Liberia, and Afghanistan. Lieutenant Colonel Riggle retired from the Marine Corps Reserve, having served 23 years total (9 years active duty, 14 years in the reserves) and earned more than 22 medals and ribbons including the Combat Action Ribbon.
