Following four sell-out performances last year, witty impressionist, actor and comedian Dana Carvey returns to The Orleans Showroom, February 1 and 2.
Carvey rose to national prominence during a six-year run on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," where he became famous for such memorable characters as "Church Lady," "Garth" and "Hans," as well as spot-on impersonations of President George H.W. Bush, Johnny Carson, Ross Perot and Regis Philbin. Carvey's work on "SNL" garnered him six Emmy Award nominations, including a win in 1993 for "Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program." He also received multiple American Comedy Awards.
In addition to "SNL," Carvey has appeared on several other television programs, including "One of the Boys," "Blue Thunder," "The Larry Sanders Show," "Just Shoot Me," "The Fairly Odd Parents," and his self-titled 1996 series, "The Dana Carvey Show," which also featured fellow comedians Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Robert Smigel.
On the big screen, Carvey starred in "Opportunity Knocks," "Wayne's World," "Wayne's World 2," "Clean Slate," "The Road to Wellville" and "Master of Disguise." Most recently he had a cameo appearance in "Jack and Jill."
