After moving to New York, he spent the early part of his acting career performing in numerous theater productions. At the same time, he became a contributing editor for National Lampoon magazine, writing features and fake letters to the editor, and also creating a comic strip called "The Evil Clown." This led to a writing job and starring roles in two cable series, Night After Night (1989) and Sports Monster (1990). After landing a job as writer and sidekick/announcer on The Dennis Miller Show (1992), Bakay decided it was time to move to Los Angeles.
