Comedian Dana Carvey is more than just a funny man -- he's also a master impressionist and an Emmy award winner. His character Garth, created for "Saturday Night Live," made the jump to the silver screen in 1992, with the perennial comic hit "Wayne's World."
Carvey continues to perform both as a stand-up comedian and as some of his best-known characters. In 2008, he appeared at the MTV Movie Awards as the character Garth alongside host Mike Myers for a "Wayne's World" sketch. That same year he filmed his second HBO stand-up special, "Squatting Monkeys Tell No Lies." The special was his first in 13 years.
In 2010, he appeared with other "SNL" current and former president impersonators in the sketch comedy "Funny or Die." More recently, he was featured in the 2011 Adam Sandler comedy "Jack & Jill," in which he made a cameo appearance in the role of a crazy puppeteer and he appeared as a guest host for three episodes on "Live with Kelly" in 2012.
