Quotes

[Drew is kicking Mr. Wick out of his house]
Drew Carey: You're still here? You know, you people have been kicked out of so many countries you'd think you'd be better at packing.
Nigel Wick: Well, it helps when we're at gunpoint.
Drew Carey: That can be arranged...

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits of certain episodes of the 8th and 9th seasons, the character's name are shown with the pictures of the actors who portray them. See more »

Alternate Versions

The episode "Two Drews and the Queen of Poland Walk Into a Bar" was deemed offensive to Polish people due to its storyline where Mimi prepares to meet the king of Poland. The syndicated version of this episode cuts Mimi's storyline entirely and reuses an intro from an older episode to fit the time missing. See more »

A Cut Above
31 July 2004 | by mebojaSee all my reviews

I don't usually like shows starring stand-up comics. They end a great comics career and usually aren't acted that well. Drew Carey is different. Every part is played pitch perfect and it has good, plausible storylines.

The show went downhill after Kate and Oswald broke up, but that happens with all shows. The Mimi/Steve pairing was well-played and emotionally fulfilling. I'm not much of a fan of Drew/Kate and the show would have been better without it. Wick is the strongest character, albeit cartoonish. But the whole show is.

My favorite episode would be when they attempted to win an Emmy. It was the epitome of the show-goofy.
