With more than 20 years of stand-up comedy experience, Breuer remains one of today’s top entertainers and continues to win over audiences with his off-the-wall humor and lovable personality.

Named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business, known for his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and family-friendly stand-up.

In addition to his busy touring schedule, Breuer can be heard on his weekly podcast “The Metal In Me,” which is available for download on BlogTalkRadio and airs Thursdays from 7 p.m.-8 p.m. on Opie Radio Sirius/XM.

Breuer’s first big break came in 1995 when he joined the cast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” During his four years on “SNL,” he quickly became a fan favorite for his original character “Goat Boy” and his impressions of actor Joe Pesci.

Following his success on “SNL,” Breuer starred alongside Dave Chappelle in the cult favorite film “Half Baked.” He has since appeared in the popular films “Zookeeper,” “Dick,” “Titan A.E.,” and “Beer League.” On the small screen, Breuer hosted MTV’s popular “Beach House” and VH1’s “Web Junk 20.” His other television appearances include “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and “The Marriage Ref.” He is also a frequent guest on “The Howard Stern Show.”

Breuer recently released his debut metal album “Songs from the Garage” with his new band, Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy.

Throughout the years, he has supported various charities through his comedy, including the Chris Farley Foundation, MusiCares, his local police and fire departments, and more.
