Morin was born in South Windsor, Connecticut, to two inner city high school English teacher parents.
Morin has an older brother, who was a concert pianist, and a younger brother, who is a doctor. He graduated from South Windsor High School. He is of Irish and Italian background.
Morin moved to Los Angeles at 18 to study at a film school at Columbia College Hollywood.
Although he graduated with a film degree, Morin started doing stand-up and eventually decided that was what he wanted to do. Morin has said that he was inspired by his idols, Albert Brooks and Woody Allen. After graduation, he worked as a production assistant with Conan O'Brien on ''The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien'' on NBC and continued with ''Conan'' on TBS. He went from being a general office production assistant to becoming the set production assistant/Andy Richter's stand-in. Morin has appeared regularly as a stand-up comic on shows with ''The Comedy Store'', ''The Improv'' and ''Laugh Factory'', as well as on tours throughout the United States. In his network TV debut, Morin co-starred in the Bill Lawrence NBC series ''Undateable,'' a multi-camera sitcom with a live audience, which was based on the book ''Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won't Be Dating or Having Sex'' by Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle.
Morin portrayed Justin Kearney, the owner of Black Eyes Bar and hopeless romantic roommate of Danny (played by ''Chris D'Elia''). ''Undateable'' was unique in that it was a cast full of stand-up comedians who were good friends before the show aired. The show often incorporates improv, with Morin playing Felix to D'Elia's grouch Oscar à la ''The Odd Couple.'' Lawrence and the cast (Chris D'Elia, Morin, Ron Funches, and Rick Glassman) went on a series of stand-up tour dates, with an appearance on @midnight to promote the show. In 2016, Morin was cast for the Rooster Teeth web series, ''Crunch Time''. In 2018, he appeared on the second season of Netflix's The Standups, performing a half-hour special.
Morin previously dated actress Angie Simms, confirming their relationship in 2016, and breakup in 2017.
