Dana Carvey Bio
Dana Carvey, Emmy-award winning comedian, has maintained a tremendous career. Carvey was born June 2, 1955, in Missoula, Montana. Dana went on to college at the San Francisco State University where he won the San Francisco Stand Up Comedy Competition. After his graduation (with a degree in communication arts), Dana Carvey played at numerous clubs in the Bay Area and then moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career.
A repertory member of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE since the 1986-87 season, Dana Carvey left in 1992 after seven seasons. Dana Carvey is best known for his characters the Church Lady; Hans, of the Hans and Franz bodybuilding duo; Garth, Wayne Campbell’s (Mike Myers) “Excellent Co Host” on the immensely popular sketch “Wayne’s World,” and Weekend Update’s Grumpy Old Man.
In addition to these characters, Dana Carvey has received widespread praise for his uncanny and exaggerated comedic impersonations of such political figures as Ex-President George Bush, H. Ross Perot, Jerry Brown, David Duke and Bob Dole. He also does impersonations of George Burns, Johnny Carson, Jimmy Stewart, John McLaughlin, Mickey Rooney, Casey Casem and Regis Philbin .
On television, Dana Carvey hosted the 1992 presentation of the MTV Music Awards, costarred in two pilots and was a member of the Showtime special SALUTE TO THE IMPROVISATION, with Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and Robert Klein. In 1995, Carvey performed standup in his own one-hour comedy special on HBO aptly named CRITICS’ CHOICE.
In 1992, Dana Carvey appeared in the blockbuster film WAYNE’S WORLD, based on the hit SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE sketch. The film grossed over $160 million and was produced by SNL creator Lorne Michaels. The public demanded a sequel, and in 1993, Carvey appeared in WAYNE’S WORLD 2, recreating his role of Garth, alongside Mike Myers’ Wayne. The film was hugely successful.
Dana Carvey’s transfer from the small screen to the large screen included roles in Alan Parker’s THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE, for Columbia Pictures, Richard and Lili Zanuck’s CLEAN SLATE for MGM, and Twentieth Century Fox’s TRAPPED IN PARADISE. His early film work includes his debut in THIS IS SPINAL TAP, RACING WITH THE MOON, ONE OF THE GROUP, where he portrayed Mickey Rooney’s grandson, BLUE THUNDER with James Farentino , TOUGH GUYS, with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, and starring in the comedy OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS.
