After a brief period studying at The Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts and touring the country as a musical theater actor, in 1995, at the request of their friends, Aukerman and Porter started performing at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles under the moniker "The Fun Bunch," a name meant to parody improvisation groups at the time.
Mr. Show co-creator Bob Odenkirk was in the audience for the second performance, and soon tapped the duo to write and occasionally perform on the HBO series in its fourth season. This led to an Emmy nomination in 1999 for Aukerman and the rest of the staff. Aukerman appeared sporadically on the show, most notably as the model Theo Brixton in the Taint Magazine sketch.
After the demise of the sketch comedy series, Aukerman, along with Porter, segued into writing film & television scripts, most notably Run Ronnie Run, the Mr. Show movie from New Line Cinema, and the first draft of the Tenacious D movie. In 2004, he and Porter received an "Additional Dialogue" credit on Dreamworks Animation's animated feature Shark Tale. They went on to write an unproduced script for the sequel, as well as an unproduced Shrek spin-off film for the character Puss In Boots. In 2007, a script he wrote with B.J. Porter and Bob Odenkirk was purchased by MTV Films with the intent of starring Rainn Wilson, star of The Office. It currently remains unproduced.
In 2009, Aukerman & Porter wrote a pilot script for NBC, Privates. The network ultimately passed on the show. That year, Aukerman also took on the role as host Andy Samberg's head writer for the 2009 MTV Movie Awards and executive produced and co-wrote a pilot for Comedy Central, The New Andy Dick Show. The network ultimately passed on ordering it to series.
In 2010 Aukerman wrote a feature script for friend Zach Galifianakis for Fox, and he and Ratatouille star Patton Oswalt co-wrote a television pilot for Fox, which the network ultimately passed on. Later that year, Aukerman joined a "writers lab," writing film scripts for Imagine Entertainment.
