Comedian Jim Breuer made a name for himself as a cast member on Saturday Night Live in the mid 1990s. Following his time on the legendary late-night sketch show, he appeared in the cult-classic, stoner comedy, Half-Baked.
The majority of Breuer’s acting career happened during the ‘90s and since then he hasn’t appeared on television or in movies. Despite not acting as often, Breuer still has a strong following of supporters that grew up watching him on SNL and in movies. This past summer, Breuer sold out a string of stand-up comedy shows in Colorado.
Breuer speaks with Ryan Patrick Hooper about his career as an actor and stand-up comedian.
“(The) ‘90s was my peak—Hollywood version—and I haven’t done T.V. really since then,” explains Breuer. “To be able to sell out every theater show in Colorado was…pretty awesome.”
