Dave Foley was born and raised in Toronto where he attended alternative high schools. At a young age, he began writing stand-up comedy for creative writing projects. 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, and the rest is history!
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_. In between seasons, he forged a feature film career that is still very active today. In addition to his comedic work, 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.
Some of the many films Foley has starred in include_ Sky High, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, A Blast From the Past, South Park: Bigger and Longer, Cars,_ and Postal. Dave have been equally active on the television side, and has appeared on _Will & Grace, Las Vegas, Joey, Lovespring International, Scrubs, Brother’s & Sisters, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Bravo’s Celebrity Poker Showdown. _
