A stand-up comedian since his high school days at Valley Stream Central High School in Valley Stream, NY, Jim Breuer worked in comedy clubs around the country for several years before deciding to become a regular on the New York comedy club circuit.
After being in New York for only seven months, he landed a gig on the nationally syndicated show, "Uptown Comedy Club," where he spent two seasons.
In 1995, Jim joined NBC's "Saturday Night Live," becoming best known for his original character "Goat Boy" and his impression of actor Joe Pesci. After a four-year stint on "SNL," Jim starred in the movie "Half Baked" alongside Dave Chappelle.
That summer, MTV also invited the comedian to co-host the popular show "MTV's Beach House." Additional appearances include numerous stints on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," as well as roles in several movies, such as "Dick" (1999) and "Once in the Life" (2000), "Beer League (2006)," and most recently, "The Zookeeper" (2010) with Kevin James.
Jim Breuer pioneered the "heavy-metal comedy" revolution, combining his love of rock 'n' roll with comedy. Backed by a full band, Jim continued to entertain packed crowds with his impressions of AC/DC's Brian Johnson and Metallica singing "If You're Happy and You Know It." Jim's "Heavy Metal Man" comedy tours also featured a mix of routines that have become cult favorites, such as "The Wizard," "Coming Home at 4 a.m." and "Party in the Stomach." It was this act that garnered him one of Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time."
Throughout the years, Jim has also supported various charities through his comedy, including the Chris Farley Foundation, MusiCares, The Salvation Army, his local police and fire departments and more.
In 2004, Jim began his career at Sirius Satellite Radio as the host of his own show "Breuer Unleashed." In 2009, the show was revamped as "Fridays with Breuer," which airs every Friday on Sirius RawDog 104 and XM 150 from 4pm-6 pm, with a rebroadcast from 9pm-11 pm.
In 2006, Jim was the host of the VH-1 series "Web Junk 20," in which 20 hilarious online-based videos per week were shown. Jim's unmistakable laugh and hilarity added to how funny those videos really were.
In 2008, Jim set out for his first tour in over six years. With his 85-year-old father and his film crew, Jim toured the country in tour buses on his "Breuniversity Tour," which included more than 20 colleges, universities, and comedy clubs. The footage that was captured was used for his latest DVD "The Jim Breuer Road Journals," which showcased what life is like on the road with a comedian and his elderly father. Both hilarious and equally touching, the special edition DVD is 4 hours long and is only available at JimBreuer.com and at most venues he appears at. Videos from that tour also sparked the making of his documentary, "More Than Me," which was shown at the 2009 Montreal Film Festival.
On July 25, 2009, Jim's one-hour Comedy Central special "Let's Clear the Air" premiered, with hilarious topics that included what "success" really is, Jim's SNL days, and life with his elderly parents, his wife and his three daughters. “Let’s Clear the Air” ranked in as one of the highest rated comedy specials on Comedy Central racking in 1 million viewers of which an astounding 100% watched from beginning to end.
Jim continued touring into 2010 while still writing his book, “I’m Not High (But I’ve Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior),” which is coming out October 5, 2010. The book contains stories ranging from his childhood and growing up, to his parents’ lives, starting his career, hilarious behind the scene SNL stories, growing a family while on the road, and his future ventures.
Jim continues to perform at comedy club and colleges across the country and currently resides in New Jersey where he enjoys spending time with his family.
