Carell, was an electrical engineer,and his mother, Harriet T. (ne Koch), was a psychiatric nurse. His maternal uncle, Stanley Koch, worked with scientist Allen B. DuMont to create cathode ray tubes. Carell is of Italian (from his paternal grandfather), German, and Polish descent. His father was born under the surname "Caroselli", and later adapted it to "Carell". Carell was raised Roman Catholic, and was educated at Nashoba Brooks School, The Fenn School, and Middlesex School. Carell also played ice hockey and lacrosse while in high school. Carell played the fife, performing with other members of his family, and later joined a reenacting group portraying the 10th (North Lincoln) Regiment of Foot. Carell attributed his interest in history to this,earning a degree in the subject from Denison University in Granville, Ohio in 1984.While at Denison, Carell was a member of Burpee's Seedy Theatrical Company, a student-run improvisational comedy troupe, and was a goalie on Big Red hockey team for four years

Career
Early work

Carell states that he worked as a mail carrier in Littleton, Massachusetts. He later recounted that he quit after six months because his boss told him he was not very good as a mail carrier and needed to be faster.Early in his performing career, Carell acted on the stage in a touring children's theater company, later in the comedy musical, Knat Scatt Private Eye and in a television commercial for Brown's Chicken in 1989.After that, Carell performed with Chicago troupe The Second City where Stephen Colbert was his understudy for a time in 1991, the same year he made his film debut in a minor role as Tesio in Curly Sue. In spring 1996, he was a cast member of The Dana Carvey Show, a small, short-lived sketch comedy program on ABC. Along with fellow cast member Stephen Colbert, Carell provided the voice of Gary, half of The Ambiguously Gay Duo, the Robert Smigel-produced animated short which continued on Saturday Night Live later that year. While the program lasted only seven episodes, The Dana Carvey Show has since been credited with forging Carell's career.

Personal life

Carell is married to Saturday Night Live alumna Nancy Carell (ne Walls), whom he met when she was a student in an improvisation class he was teaching at Second City. They have two children, Elisabeth Anne (born May 26, 2001) and John (born June 2004).[citation needed] In addition to working with Carell as a fellow correspondent on The Daily Show, Nancy Carell acted with him on The Office as his realtor and short-lived girlfriend Carol Stills, and also cameoed as a sex therapist in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and played Linda in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.

In 2011, Carell earned $17.5 million, making him the 31st highest paid actor (this excluded TV-related projects).

Carell is Catholic and once said "I hope that God gives me guidance and that he directs me to make good choices, and that he helps me with my family. But that is such a personal thing and I think everyone has a different idea of what God is and what he represents."
