He started his acting career with a few small movies, including ''Film/HalloweenII1981'' and ''ThisIsSpinalTap''.

Dana Carvey was with ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' during its second GoldenAge (1986-1993) after Lorne Michaels returned and his plans on making celebrities of his new "Not Ready For Primetime" cast (the 1985-1986 season) fell through and nearly got the show cancelled, resulting in the cast overhaul that would bring the show back from the dead. Carvey's characters on ''SNL'' included the Church Lady ("Isn't that special?"), Garth of WaynesWorld, President George H. W. Bush ("Wouldn't be prudent"), and numerous other celebrity impersonations.

After he left SNL, he starred in both WaynesWorld films and TheMasterOfDisguise with Jennifer Esposito. In 1996, he hosted Series/TheDanaCarveyShow, a VarietyShow which was critically liked but had poor ratings. It also had among it's writing staff future comedy stars Creator/LouisCK, Creator/SteveCarell, Creator/StephenColbert, and ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen almost]]) JimmyFallon. He also appeared in the film LittleNicky with SNL castmate Creator/AdamSandler.

After he left SNL, he starred in both WaynesWorld films and TheMasterOfDisguise with Jennifer Esposito. In 1996, he hosted Series/TheDanaCarveyShow, a VarietyShow which was critically liked but proved [[CrossingtheLineTwice too out-there]] for network TV (it aired on ABC in America, not really a smart thing to do since, back then, ABC was more of a family-friendly channel and ABC has had some bad luck in dealing with sketch comedy shows that were wild and outrageous. ''Turn-On'' in 1969 got cancelled after one episode [or half of the first episode, depending on the affiliate] and ''Fridays'', while a favorite with those who were disillusioned by ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'''s downward spiral in 1980, ended up getting ScrewedByTheNetwork, first by censoring sketches in reruns, and then by putting it in a midnight timeslot rather than an 11:30pm one). It also had among it's writing staff future comedy stars Creator/LouisCK, Creator/SteveCarell, Creator/StephenColbert, and ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen almost]]) JimmyFallon. He also appeared in the film LittleNicky with SNL castmate Creator/AdamSandler.
