Clyde Oberholt

Played by Ben Schwartz

Clyde Oberholt

A young, ambitious consultant and a major suck-up, Clyde is the perennial court jester of his team, always playing practical jokes and trying to get dirt on his co-workers. He pulls his weight at work, for sure, but he's completely preoccupied with bagging as many women as he can.
