Biography

Bien que né à Guayaquil, (Équateur), Judge grandit à Albuquerque, Nouveau-Mexique, il obtient un diplôme de physique à l'université de Californie, San Diego, travaille en tant qu'ingénieur et musicien, puis déménage à Dallas pour poursuivre sa carrière de musicien. Cependant, il s'intéresse très tôt aux dessins animés alors en développement.

En 1991 son court métrage animé Office Space (également connu sous the Milton series of shorts) est sélectionné par Comedy Central durant un festival d'animation à Dallas.

Puis, en 1992 il développe Frog Baseball, un court métrage animé avec une courte apparition pour la première fois des personnages Beavis et Butt-Head que l'on retrouve dans Liquid Television, une série animée du début des années 90 sur MTV qui lança de nombreux dessins animés originaux. Ce programme court permet la création de la série Beavis et Butt-Head (Beavis and Butt-head) sur MTV, dans laquelle Judge joue les deux personnages principaux ainsi que la majorité des personnages secondaires. La série est diffusée de 1993 à 1997 et a engendré une version longue au cinéma Beavis et Butt-Head se font l'Amérique en 1996.

En 1997 Judge quitte MTV pour créer Les Rois du Texas sur la Fox. Plusieurs des personnages qu'il a créés sont basés sur des personnes qu'il a rencontrées lorsqu'il vivait au Texas, Judge continue de faire les voix en jouant Hank Hill et Boomhauer.

En 1999 Judge écrit et réalise la comédie 35 heures, c'est déjà trop, qui est basé sur la série de cartoon Milton qu'il avait créé pour le Saturday Night Live. Dans le film il se donne l'apparence d'un camé, Stan directeur constipé de la chaîne de restaurants Chotchkie's qu'il complète d'une fausse moustache et d'un postiche. Le film n'a eu qu'un faible succès lors de sa sortie en salles, mais est depuis devenu un film culte cumulant des millions de ventes de vidéos et DVD.
Depuis l'automne 2003, Judge a créé un festival d'animation itinérant couronné de succès en compagnie du dessinateur Don Hertzfeldt appelé "The Animation Show". "The Animation Show" parcours le pays chaque année à la recherche de dessinateurs indépendants en regardant leurs courts métrages animés.

Le film Idiocracy, une comédie futuriste avec Luke Wilson et Maya Rudolph, dont la sortie au cinéma aux États-Unis en septembre 2006 fut en partie compromise, après avoir été repoussé maintes fois : la 20th Century Fox l'avait ainsi mis en suspens deux années de suite. Ainsi, le film qui bénéficia d'une sortie limitée fut dépourvu de campagne publicitaire et de bande-annonce malgré l'appréciation du public lors des projections-tests. Il est en passe de devenir un film-culte selon le New York Times (mai 2009).

Son dernier film en date, Extract, est sorti en 2009.

En 2014 Mike Judge co-crée avec John Altschuler et Dave Krinsky la série Silicon Valley partiellement inspiré de sa carrière d'ingénieur dans la Silicon Valley.

Jackass Number Two is a compilation of various stunts, pranks and skits, and essentially has no plot. The film opens with an introduction of the nine cast members while they're being chased by bulls in a neighborhood.

Dave England takes cover in a garbage can, which is knocked aside by a bull. Jason "Wee-Man" Acuña is knocked to the ground by a calf, and Chris Pontius is thrown into a kiddie pool by a bull's horns.

Peter Gibbons, a disgruntled programmer at Initech, spends his days "staring at his desk" instead of actually working. His co-workers include Samir Nagheenanajar, who is annoyed by the fact that nobody can pronounce his last name correctly; Michael Bolton, who loathes having the same name as the famous singer, whom he hates; and Milton Waddams, a meek, fixated collator who constantly mumbles to himself. Milton had actually been laid off years earlier, though he was never informed and, due to a payroll computer glitch, continues to receive regular paychecks. All four are repeatedly mistreated by management, especially Initech's smarmy, callous vice president, Bill Lumbergh. The staff are further agitated by the arrival of two consultants, Bob Slydell and Bob Porter, who are brought in to help the company through downsizing and outsourcing.

After a surreal dream of the two of them menacing a city as giants, Beavis and Butt-head wake up to realize that someone has stolen their television. The pair then embark on a quest to find it. After several mishaps involving searching for a television, they visit a low-quality motel that advertises "TVs in every room". There, they encounter Muddy Grimes, who is waiting for two hired hitmen (later revealed to be the same people who stole Beavis and Butt-head's television) to murder his wife, Dallas. Muddy (who is drunk), thinking that Beavis and Butt-head are the killers he has contacted, says that they must "do" (murder) his wife. Thinking that by "do" Muddy means "score with", Butt-head convinces Beavis that both of them can "score" as well as, they'll get paid and they can buy a new television. Muddy hands them a photograph of Dallas with instructions on where to find her. He then drives them to the airport to catch a plane to Las Vegas.
