Kevin Farley has truly established himself as a comedic presence both on the big screen and television.
Farley grew up in Madison, WI, as the fourth child of five children and he attended Marquette University where he earned a business degree. Farley then went to work for his father’s business, but eventually moved to Chicago and studied at the famed Second City and continues to be active as a key alumnus. Then it didn’t take long for him to establish himself as a comedic presence both on the big screen and television in Los Angeles.
He immediately began working with Adam Sandler in The Waterboy and also starred in the comedic films Black Sheep and Beverly Hills Ninja. Then Farley landed a starring role as “Doug Linus” on MTV’s sitcom 2gether where he was met with rave reviews. Farley has also been seen in numerous hit TV series such as That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Joey, Just Shoot Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm, United States of Tara, True Jackson, VP and many more.
In the feature film An American Carol (Directed by David Zucker) Farley’s lead character is a spoof on director Michael Moore as the storyline moves into a satirical look at Hollywood and America’s politically correct culture. He is visited by three spirits who take him on a hilarious journey in an attempt to show him the true meaning of America. The supporting cast included Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Leslie Nielsen and the late Dennis Hopper.
Farley moved behind the camera as co-writer and co-director of Hollywood & Wine, which takes an irreverent look at an actress struggling because she’s a dead ringer for a tabloid train wreck-type actress. Alongside Kevin Farley and co-writer John Farley this hilarious film stars a unique cast of comedians, (SNL alum) Chris Kattan, David Spade, Norm MacDonald, Horatio Sanz, Chris Parnell as well as Nicky Whelan, Chazz Palminteri, and Vivica Fox.
Next up for Farley is the feature film White Knight (released January 2011). Farley stars alongside Tom Sizemore and Stacy Keach. It’s about a Texas Ku Klux Klan member confronts everything he's been taught to hate when he's sentenced to three years of hard labor on a prison work farm. An unconventional love story develops that opens their eyes to the possibility of a different life. And a man who was a born and bred racist finds himself heading down a completely different path to salvation.
