A casual Q&A with actor/writer Dave Foley.

Dave Foley was born and raised in Toronto where began writing stand-up comedy for creative writing projects at a young age. His interest in improv led him to comedy workshops, where he met and teamed with Kevin McDonald. They became ?The Kids in the Hall? one year later.

Their distinct and irreverent brand of comedy quickly earned ?The Kids in the Hall? a large cult following influencing a new generation of sketch comedy. In 1987, Lorne Michaels produced their first television special. By 1989, the troupe had their own series on the Canadian Broadcasting Co. and, later on HBO, where it aired until 1991. CBS and Comedy Central soon after picked it up, where it ran from 1992-1994. They crossed over into feature films with the 1995 release of Brain Candy for Paramount Pictures.

After the successful television run of Kids in the Hall, Dave signed onto the long running NBC series Newsradio. Foley has also been seen in HBO?s critically-acclaimed mini-series From the Earth to the Moon. He also wrote and starred in the film The Wrong Guy which was released in Canada. In addition, he also directed the Kids in The Hall documentary, Same Guys New Dresses, based on one of the group?s recent tours.

Foley has voiced characters in films A Bug?s Life, Toy Story 2, South Park: Bigger and Longer, Cars, and Postal (now in post-production). Dave has made numerous television appearances from Will & Grace and Scrubs to Brothers & Sisters. Look for Dave as a guest star in the first episode of Maron with Marc Maron.
