Personal Quote:

When people come to see my stand-up, they get a chance to see my characters interact with each other. I enjoy pushing my characters to the limit. No matter how far out there I go, I look for things that make the characters human. While many comics have a secret persona, I fundamentally want to be myself. See more »

He appeared on the January 16-22, 1993 cover of "TV Guide" along with fellow SNL alumni Phil Hartman doing their presidential parodies. Carvey did George Bush, Sr. and Hartman did Bill Clinton. See more »
