Kevin James is currently the star and executive producer of “Kevin Can Wait” for Sony Television and CBS, which premiered in September of 2016. He also recently starred in the action comedy “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” for Netflix.

James began his career as a stand-up comic on the Long Island comedy scene. After being discovered at the 1996 Montreal Comedy Festival, he signed a network development deal to create his own sitcom.

“The King of Queens,” which premiered in 1998, ran for nine seasons on CBS with James starring and executive producing, garnering him an Emmy nomination in 2006 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. The show concluded its run in 2007 but continues to air daily in syndication across the country and around the world.

In 2001, James brought his stand-up act to TV with “Sweat the Small Stuff,” a one-hour special for Comedy Central. In 2005, he and Ray Romano executive produced and starred in the HBO Sports Special “Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach,” a documentary about the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Tournament that was nominated for a Sports Emmy.

James was the producer, co-writer, and star of the hit comedies “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” and its sequel, “Zookeeper,” and “Here Comes the Boom.” He made his feature film debut in 2005 in Columbia Pictures’ “Hitch” starring opposite Will Smith, and he starred alongside Adam Sandler in “Pixels,” “Grown Ups,”, “Grown Ups 2,” and “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.”

In addition to his on-camera work, James’s voice has been featured in the animated films “Barnyard” for Nick Movies, as well as “Monster House,” “Hotel Transylvania,” and its sequel for Sony Pictures Animation.
