Witty impressionist, actor and comedian Dana Carvey brings the laughs to The Orleans Showroom, April 16 and 17, each evening at 8 p.m.
Carvey may be most recognized for his six-year stint as a cast member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, where he created memorable characters “Church Lady,” “Garth” and “Hans” and spot-on impersonations of Johnny Carson, Ross Perot and Regis Philbin. Carvey’s work on SNL garnered him six Emmy Award nominations, with a win in 1993 for “Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program.” He also received multiple American Comedy Awards. In February, Carvey returned to Saturday Night Live, this time taking on hosting duties.
In addition to SNL, Carvey appeared on several other television programs – in guest and starring roles – including, One of the Boys, Blue Thunder, The Larry Sanders Show, Just Shoot Me, The Fairly Odd Parents, and his self-titled 1996 series, The Dana Carvey Show, which also featured fellow comedians Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Robert Smigel.
Carvey began work in films on the set of Halloween II in 1982 as a production assistant. He appeared in supporting roles in This Is Spinal Tap, Racing with the Moon and Tough Guys. He starred in films Opportunity Knocks, Wayne’s World, Wayne’s World 2, Clean Slate, The Road to Wellville and Master of Disguise.
