Dana Carvey Speaker
Dana Carvey Speaker Profile
Moving to Hollywood, Carveys first television efforts failed to capitalize on his comedic talents. In the 1982 sitcom One of the Boys, he starred as a college student who invites his grandfather to leave his retirement home to live with him and his roommate. Carvey ended up as the straight man to Mickey Rooney who played his grandfather. The cast also included Meg Ryan as his girlfriend and Nathan Lane as his roommate. Despite the shows talented performers, it was canceled after nearly eight months on air.
Carvey tried his hand at action with the television adaptation of the hit film, Blue Thunder, in 1984. He played a young electronics expert in this short-lived police drama. Taking a break from television, Carvey returned to doing stand-up comedy. It was at a show that he was discovered by Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels. He joined the cast of the late-night comedy series in 1986.
For seven years, Carvey delighted audiences with such characters as the Church Lady and bodybuilder extraordinaire Hans, part of the Hans and Franz duo. He also excelled at impersonation - taking on such personalities as President George Bush, Ross Perot, and more. In fact, President George Bush liked Carveys version of him so much that he invited Carvey to perform at the White House.Big Screen Roles
One of Carveys characters, Garth, made the leap to the big screen in Waynes World (1992). Garth was the shaggy heavy-metal sidekick to his friend Wayne played by Mike Myers, and the two appeared together on Waynes cable access show. The comedy proved to be a box office hit and led to a sequel Waynes World 2 the following year.
In 1993, Carvey left Saturday Night Live, and finally won an Emmy Award for his work on the show after four previous nominations. He kept himself busy with a number of film projects. He appeared in Clean Slate (1994), The Road to Wellville (1994), and Trapped in Paradise (1994). He returned to television in 1996 with The Dana Carvey Show. Early on, the show encountered difficulty when it made fun of some of its advertisers, which led them to withdraw their support for the program. The gutsy sketch comedy show lasted less than two months.
