PULLMAN, Wash. — Emmy-award winning comedian Dana Carvey, known for his “hilariously funny and clean” brand of humor, will perform Nov. 2 during Dad’s Weekend at Washington State University.
Beasley Coliseum will host the comic “in the round” at 8:30 p.m. There will be four video screens so all who attend can see every expression, movement and detail of his performance.
Carvey, a Missoula, Mont., native, was a regular cast member on the NBC television program “Saturday Night Live” from 1986 to 1992. He is best known for his characters the Church Lady, Garth of “Wayne’s World,” and Hans of the Hans and Franz bodybuilding duo.
He is also praised for his exaggerated impersonations of such political figures as ex-President George Bush, H. Ross Perot and Bob Dole.
Carvey co-wrote and starred in the 2002 summer movie “The Master of Disguise,” a children’s comedy written at the request of his children.
