Comedian Kevin Pollack at Bay Street Theatre
June 2, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Kevin Pollak has captured the attention of audiences worldwide with his range of both dramatic and comedic roles. He has appeared in over sixty films, as well as countless television talk shows, and has established himself as one of the few stand-up comedians to have a successful dramatic film career. In addition to his acting talents, he has also proven himself as a writer, producer and recently director and award-winning talk show host.
Mr. Pollak first started performing stand-up comedy at age ten and became a touring professional stand-up at age twenty. In 1988, shortly after Kevin shot his first HBO stand-up special, he landed a role in “Willow,” directed by Ron Howard and produced by George Lucas. In 1989, he got his first dramatic acting role in Barry Levinson’s “Avalon”, but it was Pollak’s role in Rob Reiner’s “A Few Good Men,” opposite Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore, that proved his ability to stand out while sharing the big screen with dramatic heavyweights.
Not too soon after, Kevin was co-starring with icons Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon in “Grumpy Old Men” and its’ sequel, “Grumpier Old Men.” In 1994, Kevin was offered a plum role opposite Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Spacy and Bennicio Del Toro in a little indy film called “The Usual Suspects.” The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and won two Academy Awards.
