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.

Listen in on iTunes Radio to the Farley Bros Radio show as Kevin and John (along with traffic cop comedienne Carissa Kosta) spin hilarious takes on life, love, family and more. Drawing on their long history in Improv comedy, the gang riffs on news-of-the-weird stories from all corners of the planet and their very own wild experiences in and out of the entertainment galaxy. From Madison to Hollywood and all points in between, it's a free-flowing conversation undeniably
“Farley” style.

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • Dwight York
    August 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Dwight York

    “I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.

    Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.

    York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a  compliment to all three master comics.
