Tituss Burgess on Being ‘Titus Andromedon’ on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Following Your Instincts
Tituss Burgess is one of those actors who, no matter if it’s a small church choir in Georgia or a starring role on Broadway, always brings magic to the role.

His successful audition for a small recurring part on 30 Rock put him on Tina Fey’s radar and led to a role as Titus Andromedon on the Netflix original series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Burgess’s performance on the show has earned him four consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

In this interview, Tituss talks about his upbringing in Georgia, embodying the character of Titus Andromedon and coping with a broken microphone while performing live at the Tony Awards.

The second half of the final season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was recently released and is available on Netflix.

This interview originally aired in 2016.
