Bob Belcher is a third-generation burgermeister whose restaurant is constantly on the verge of going out of business due to his late rent payments. He tries to keep the place going with the help of his three kids and loving wife Linda, but he's constantly on edge because of the success of his arch nemesis, Jimmy Pesto, whose pasta joint always seems to draw bigger crowds. He's not afraid to fry outside of the box, offering up a variety of offbeat burgers, including the Rest in Peas, Thank God It's Fried Egg, the Sound and the Curry, and the Holy Grail of meat patties: the Meatsiah. Though he faces harassment from health inspector Hugo (Linda's ex) and threats from the annual Lobster Fest, Bob manages to muddle through and keep the grill sizzling, thanks to such loyal customers as Mort the Mortician and Teddy the Contractor. His favorite movie is the Spaghetti Western series "Banjo," and his lifelong hero was obscure local baseball pitcher Tornado Jones (before he found out what a cheater Jones is).
Born in Worcester, MA, H. Jon Benjamin has garnered an extensive list of credits as a writer, producer and actor in some of television's most entertaining series.
Benjamin currently voices the title character on BOB'S BURGERS and gives voice to "Sterling Archer" on the animated cable hit "Archer," which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance.
Last year, he produced and starred in the sketch comedy show "Jon Benjamin Has a Van," which garnered him a WGA nomination for Best Comedy/Variety Series.
He is perhaps best known for providing the voice of "Dr. Katz's" lazy son "Ben" on the now-classic animated cable series "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist." In 2006, he co-created (with David Cross) the animated series "Freak Show" and provided the voice of "Tuck."
