He first sang a number of comedy pieces and covers of well known songs on television, notably in A Bit of Fry and Laurie, where, as country singer Vern, he explains his approach to foreign policy in "There Ain't But One Way". In Stuart Little, he performed a duet of the classic "Heart and Soul", and he performed on the piano a number of times on House M.D., as well as singing. "Get Happy" in a psychedelic dream sequence.
