Early work

Hader was born and raised in Tulsa, where he attended Patrick Henry Elementary School, Edison Junior High and Cascia Hall Preparatory School, before attending The Art Institute of Phoenix and Scottsdale Community College. Hader's comedic aspirations eventually led him to Los Angeles where he joined the Second City, a comedy troupe that has been a training ground for many SNL cast members since the 1970s. He used to perform puppet shows in the local park near his parents home in Tulsa. After being beat up, his parents decided to send him away to further work on his comedy. He performed at iO West in Los Angeles. During his time at Second City and iO West, Hader worked as a production assistant on the DVD Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy and Collateral Damage, as well as an assistant on VH1's The Surreal Life.
