Jim Breuer

Breuer came to national attention during his seasons on Saturday Night Live (1995-98), a rebuilding era whose cast featured Will Ferrell, David Spade and Norm McDonald. Some even still associate him with Half Baked, a stoner comedy flick from around that time that starred Dave Chappelle and featured cameos by Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Tommy Chong.

The fans who got into Breuer in the new millennium were drawn into his whirlwind journey through his Comedy Central specials such as Hardcore (2002) and Let’s Clear The Air (2009), one of the highest rated comedy specials in the network’s history – popularly known as his “coming out party” as a dad, cleaning up his act and focusing on the fun and foibles of family life. His next special And Laughter For All (2013), became the highest rated original comedy special on EPIX to date, earning it’s spot as a family favorite for its relatable and multi-generational humor. His latest special Comic Frenzy (2015) is currently available on Amazon Prime.

Over the years, Breuer has been something of a multi-media sensation currently appearing alongside Kevin James on Kevin Can Wait on CBS as well as popular films Zookeeper, Dick, Titan A.E. and Beer League; hosting MTV's popular Beach House and VH1’s Web Junk 20; and being featured on Comedy Jam, This Is Not Happening, 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.
