Trivia

The series finale's ending is a remake of the pilot's ending, but with a small twist. In the pilot, Kate, Oswald, and Lewis watch Drew from his kitchen window as he plays pool, and in the finale, it's Lewis, Oswald, Mr. Wick, Mimi, Kellie, and Drew, Jr., who are watching Drew. Both endings include Drew playing pool outside in the rain, in his yellow rain jacket, humming "Moon Over Parma". See more »

The working class sitcom for working class people...
11 April 2001 | by (Jersey shore, USA) – See all my reviews

U know, before Drew Carey got his own show, I didn't even know who he was. This show truly captializes his talents as a comedian and actor.

"The Drew Carey Show" is by far one of the funniest sitcoms on television in recent years. It also happens to be my third favorite show. Our bespectacled hero, Drew, works in a Winfried-Louder Depaertment Store's offices, run by a dorky Scot, Nigel Wick (Criag Ferguson). His archnemisis, Mimi Bobeck-Carey (Kathy Kinney) wears tons of make-up and tacky clothes, much in the same sense that Peggy Bundy on "Married with Children" was the queen of tacky. Of course, Drew has his girlfriend, Kate (Christa Miller) and his dopey buddies, Lewis Kiniski (Ryan Stiles, who upstages Carey) and Oswald Lee Harvey (Deidrich Bader).

This show is very funny. The plotlines are always interesting, and of course, Lewis and Oswald have to accomplish some stupid feat in the 1/2 hour (ie: they used $8000 to record an album using classic songs, with them--"Tequilla" or Lewis saying "Wipeout!") Of course, everyone gets into a big mess, Mimi insults Drew, Drew plots revenge, and everything is said and done in the half hour.

I love this show, and highly recommend it to everyone who has a good sense of humor. Drew Carey's standup is excellent, and this show just adds another good credit to a very talented man!

Cleveland truly does rock! (Except I'm a Yankees fan!)
