On a TV show like the American version of The Office, it would be difficult for many actors to stand out among such a talent-laden cast of characters. Tucked among the Dwights, Michaels and Jim-n-Pams, though, Creed Bratton managed to shine in his delightfully weird performance playing a brilliantly exaggerated version of his real self. Bratton (in real life) had a long history as a musician, particularly in popular ’60s flower-power group the Grass Roots (“Let’s Live For Today”), and his music and comedy chops come together on his live tours, billed as “An Evening of Music and Comedy.” No doubt his in-person “real” Creed Bratton persona will be much more friendly than his conspiratorial Office counterpart.
