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 "Zookeeper," "Dick," "Titan A.E." and "Beer League." On the small screen, Breuer hosted MTV's popular "Beach House" and VH1's "Web Junk 20." His other television appearances include "Kevin Can Wait," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," and "The Marriage Ref." Breuer is also a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show.

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.
