Jim Breuer Plays Bay Street Theatre, 8/27
Jim Breuer has been a stand-up comedian since his high school days at Valley Stream Central High School in Valley Stream, NY. Breuer worked in Comedy Clubs around the country for several years before deciding to become a regular on the New York Comedy Club circuit. In 1995, Jim joined NBC's "Saturday Night Live" becoming best known for his original character "Goat Boy" and his impression of actor Joe Pesci.
After a four-year stint on "SNL", Jim starred in the movie "Half Baked" alongside Dave Chappelle. Additional appearances include numerous stints on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" as well as roles in several movies, such as Dick, Once in the Life, Beer League and most recently The Zookeeper with Kevin James. Breuer pioneered the "heavy-metal comedy" revolution, combining his love of rock 'n' roll with comedy. Jim's "Heavy Metal Man" comedy tours also feature a mix of routines that have become cult favorites, such as "The Wizard", "Coming Home at 4 a.m.", and "Party in the Stomach". It was this act that garnered him one of Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time". His Sirius Satellite Radio show "Fridays with Breuer”, airs every Friday. Tickets are $60 for members and $67 nonmembers*.
