Comedian Jim Breuer made us laugh as "Goat Boy" on SNL and with his uncanny impersonation of Joe Pesci. He was here with his take on headlines from the week and talk about performing at the Highline Ballroom on Friday as part of his Heavy Metal Family Man Tour.
With over 20 years of stand-up comedy experience, Jim Breuer remains one of today's top entertainers and continues to win over audiences with his off-the-wall humor and lovable personality.
Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time," Breuer has found success in various facets of the entertainment industry, and is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business. In addition to keeping busy on his current comedy tour "Heavy Metal Family Man," Breuer can also be heard on his weekly Sirius/XM Radio show "Fridays With Breuer" and podcast hit, "Podcast Masters."
Jim Breuer's acclaimed autobiography, I'm Not High: (But I've Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior), was recently released on paperback in September 2011. In the memoir, Breuer sheds light on his early struggles, his rise to fame and the many lessons he's learned along in an extremely funny, yet personal and touching way fans have never seen before.
Breuer's big break came in 1995 when he joined the cast of NBC's legendary hit show, Saturday Night Live. During his four years on SNL, Breuer quickly became a fan-favorite for his original character "Goat Boy" and his dead-on impressions of actor Joe Pesci. Following his success on SNL, Breuer starred alongside Dave Chappelle in the cult favorite film Half Baked. He has since appeared in the popular films Dick, Titan A.E. and Beer League. His most recent film is the animated comedy, Zookeeper, starring Kevin James, Rosario Dawson and Adam Sandler.
On the small screen, Breuer hosted MTV's popular Beach House and VH1's Web Junk 20. On July 25, 2009, Breuer's one-hour Comedy Central special Let's Clear the Air premiered with hilarious topics that included what "success" really is, his SNL days and life with his elderly parents, his wife and his three daughters.
His other television appearances include Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel Live and NBC's hit The Marriage Ref. Most recently, Breuer just wrapped up a national tour alongside three of the nation's top comedians, Dave Attell, Bill Burr and Jim Norton, with "The Anti-Social Network."
Jim Breuer will be performing at the Highline Ballroom (431 W 16th St, New York, NY 10011) as part of his Heavy Metal Family Man Tour on Friday, January 13.
