His comedy career started in 1986 when he won an open-microphone contest and became Master of Ceremonies at the Cleveland Comedy Club, but he only entered the public eye when he competed in the 1988 ''Series/StarSearch''. His stand-up career led to supporting roles on television shows and a small role in the movie ''Film/Coneheads''. In 1995, he premiered in ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'', where he played a fictionalized version of himself, though he grew frustrated with the censors and his inability to employ his usual off-color humor.

Fortunately, he found his next calling in improv television with ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', followed by ''Series/CrewCareysGreenScreenShow'' and ''Series/DrewCareysImprovAGanza''. He was also one of the founders of the Improv All-Stars, a group of improv actors that contributed talent to these three shows.
