Drew Carey is a stand-up comic turned actor and producer who had the distinction of having two hit shows simultaneously: the long-running comedy The Drew Carey Show, which ran from 1995-2004, and the improv/sketch show Whose Line Is It Anyway? on which he was host and a producer. The success of that show led to the creation of Drew Carey’s Improv All-Stars, an improv troupe that performs in showrooms across the country.
In July 2007, Carey was named the host of The Price Is Right, succeeding longtime host Bob Barker. In August 2007, he began also hosting the Network’s Power Of 10, a high-stakes, primetime game show where contestants compete for the chance to win $10 million.
In May 2000, Carey starred in his first television movie as the title character in “Geppetto” for the Wonderful World of Disney. Carey sang and danced in the new telling of the classic Pinocchio tale. Carey’s debut book, Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined, is a look at life from Drew’s unique and comical perspective.
