One of the stars of "Married with Children" made a stop in Phoenix this week.

David Faustino was Bud Bundy on the popular TV show from the '80s and '90s, which Time magazine dubbed one of the 100 best TV shows of all time.

It's been 16 years since the show went off the air and all of the actors have moved on to different careers. Some stayed on TV. Others went to Broadway. Faustino followed his interest in music and now runs a record company called Old Skratch records. He's signed or worked with several popular hip-hop groups and singers and was in Phoenix for a concert where he hosted and sang.

One plotline on "Married with Children" had Faustino -- aka Bud Bundy -- playing a rapper called "Grandmaster B." Now in real life, Faustino performs in his rapper persona known to fans as "Lil' Gweed."

But Faustino hasn't given up on acting either. He's in a new Netflix comedy series called "Bad Samaritans." 

It just recently debuted on the streaming network. On that show he's come full circle since his days on "Married with Children. He played the kid on "Married with Children," now he's playing the adult trying to wrangle a bunch of kid-like characters through mandatory community service on "Bad Samaritans."
