Here Comes the Boom – Kevin James!
The King of Queens, Mall Cop, Zookeeper, Kevin Can Wait and Larry (of Chuck and Larry) – Kevin James wears many hats. This March, you can catch all of his comedic brilliance on The Island Showroom stage when he brings his Irregardless Tour to Upper Michigan for two hilarious nights.
From Standup to Sitcom
Young Kevin James was a promising college football fullback until the acting bug bit him. After spending his junior summer with the local community theater, he realized getting laughs was a bigger rush than stopping running backs from scoring a first down.
James took to the hometown comedy circuit in Long Island where he soon made a name for himself. He appeared on Star Search and was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. But it was his set at The Montreal Comedy Fest in 1996 that earned him his big break. The young star received the deal that every struggling comedian dreams of: the chance to develop and star in his own sitcom. The result was The King of Queens, and the rest is history.
Starting in 1998, The King of Queens ran for nine seasons and earned James an Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy series. The hit show still airs daily in syndication. Since then, Kevin James has starred in dozens of movies, done animation voice work and produced shows for Netflix.
Along with longtime friend and fellow golf aficionado, Ray Romano, James produced Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach for HBO Sports. The show was nominated for a sports Emmy. James has proven he can do it all!
Back to Center Stage
Now, Kevin James is back on the stage, touring in front of live crowds across the country. This spring, he brings his everyman comedy and warm deadpan delivery to The Island Casino. You’re sure to be ROTF when James regales you with his quietly hilarious observations on life, fatherhood and the simple absurdities of the world.
James will tell hilarious stories from his youth, his family, his life in TV and film and his love of sports. Enjoy his well-honed mix of comedic timing, working-class roots and Hollywood shine.
