The Many Undercover Disguises Of Sterling Archer

By 03.27.13

Tomorrow night we will be introduced to Father Guido Sarguchi, Sterling Archer’s latest brilliantly excessive alter ego, as the ISIS gang goes undercover in Papal Chase. In honor of everyone’s new favorite religious figure (great mustache, that guy) the Floyd County team has helped me compile this collection of Archer’s most memorable — and always ultimately unsuccessful — undercover disguises. Except for the ones I’ve forgotten, of course. Thanks in advance, comments section!

Unless otherwise noted, just assume the undercover name is some version of Randy.
