A repertory member of “Saturday Night Live” since the 1986-87 season, Carvey left in 1992 after seven seasons. Carvey is best known for his characters the Church Lady; Hans, of the Hans and Franz body building duo; Garth, Wayne Campbell’s (Mike Myers) ‘Excellent Co-Host’ on the immensely popular sketch ‘Wayne’s World,’ and Weekend Updates Grumpy Old Man. In addition to these characters, Dana has received widespread praise for his uncanny 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.
In 1992 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.
Carvey won an Emmy Award in 1993 for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program. He has received a total of six Emmy nominations one of which was for a guest appearance on HBO’s highly acclaimed “LARRY SANDERS SHOW.” Also, he was honored with The American Comedy Award as Television’s Funniest Supporting Male in 1990 and 1991.
Carvey made his first appearance at the State Theatre in November 2011.
