Drew Carey is bringing his hilarity to the Living Arts Centre for one night only! This stand-up comic turned actor and producer had the distinction of having two hit shows simultaneously: the long-running comedy The Drew Carey Show, which ran from 1995-2004, and the improv/sketch show Whose Line Is It Anyway? on which he was host and a producer. The success of that show led to the creation of Drew Carey's Improv All-Stars, an improv troupe that performs in showrooms across the country.
He began his successful career as a comedian in April of 1986 at the Cleveland Comedy Club. One of his first big breaks was competing on "Star Search '88." In 1991, Carey landed a spot on HBO's "14th Annual Young Comedians Special" and appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Carey landed his own television development deal at Disney, which led to an opportunity for Carey to co-star in the series The Good Life. Carey also had the opportunity to work with Bruce Helford, who was a consulting writer on the series and hired Carey as a staff writer for The Gaby Hoffman Show. Their experience led the two of them to decide to co-create a series for Carey. Carey went on to star in his own comedy special for Showtime, Drew Carey: Human Cartoon and performed in Showtime's Tenth Anniversary of the Montreal Comedy Festival.
Now starring as the host of THE PRICE IS RIGHT, succeeding longtime host Bob Barker, Drew Carey takes a night off of spinning the wheel to entertain you. Join us for a night of laughter with the hilarious Drew Carey.
