Fulcher was born in Massachusetts. He attended St. Albans School in Washington, D.C., and then studied as a lawyer (earning a degree in government from Dartmouth College) but after graduating pursued a career in comedy instead. He took to improvised comedy at the ImprovOlympic in Chicago, where he was one of the early members of the Upright Citizens Brigade.
Beginning in late 1992 in Chicago, Fulcher began working on a new long-form improvisational comedy concept – a completely improvised university lecture that would become known as Modern Problems In Science. After several months of rehearsing, Fulcher, Dick Costolo and Phil Granchi launched the show at Chicago's Annoyance Theater under the direction of Tom Keevers. The show played at the Annoyance for more than a year, after which the group took the show to the 1994 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The show became an underground hit and placed Fulcher firmly on British comedic soil. The show later toured at comedy festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada and Singapore, with a run at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London. Fulcher and the group performed the show at the '95 and '96 Edinburgh Fringe, after which time the show was made into a six-part television series for the Paramount Channel UK.
