Adam Brooks Reed (born January 8, 1970)[1] is an American voice actor, animator, writer, producer, and director. Reed is best known for creating and writing for FX's adult animated comedy series Archer, which began its first season in September 2009. The show's seventh season premiered on March 31, 2016.[2] He was also a voice actor, writer, director and producer for the cartoons Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo, which he co-created with Matt Thompson.

Early work[edit]

Adam Reed and his partner Matt Thompson started out at Cartoon Network doing various odd jobs, until they came up with their own show called High Noon Toons in the mid-90s. High Noon Toons was a 3-hour programming block of cartoons hosted by cowboy hand puppets Haas and Lil' Jo (a Bonanza pun). While working on this show, Thompson and Reed were usually heavily intoxicated and the two eventually got reprimanded for lighting one of the prop sets on fire.[3] Internet personality Dan Avidan claims meeting Reed at a party, where intoxicated he punched Avidan in the crotch in his drunken stupor.
