P.U. First guy - not funny (thinking it couldn't get worse) and then the second guy came on and his songs were STUPID and not funny (really this was worse than the first guy). Sadly Pollak was not impressive and we left early. Kevin was in the back and heard/saw how NOT FUNNY the first two guys were....he should've come out popping with some NEW & FUNNY material. Too bad!!

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 projects, 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 both a writer, producer and recently a director.
Pollak first started performing stand-up comedy at the age of ten. He 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", for which he received an overwhelming response from the film community.
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 share 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 Spacey, Benicio Del Toro and Chazz Palmintieri in a little indy film called "The Usual Suspects." The director Bryan Singer and the writer Christopher McQuarrie were unknowns at the time. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and won two Academy Awards, as well as a special award from The National Board of Review for "Best Ensemble Cast." That same year, the call came from Martin Scorsese for Kevin to join Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone in his Vegas epic, "Casino." The film has become known as one Scorsese's classics.
As the 20th century came to a close, Variety named it's top 10 hardest working film actors, the criteria of which was that said actors had to have done at least 3 films per year, each year of the 1990's. Kevin was on the list.
As the millennium began, Kevin returned to his first love, stand-up comedy. He began touring the country in '01 and continues to tour sporadically here and abroad. Of course, his film career continued as he has co-starred in 27 films since 2000, including “The Wedding Planner,” "End of Days," "The Whole Nine Yards" "Hostage.”
In March of 2009, Kevin began hosting his own internet talk show, called Kevin Pollak's Chat Show. It streams live every Sunday, 3pm, PDT at http://www.Kevinpollakschatshow.com. Archived episodes are available there, as well as free downloads at iTunes. Before celebrating the shows 1 year anniversary, the show received 3 2010 Streamy Award nominations and won for Best Live Production of a Web Series.
Pollak was recently seen in Kevin Smith's "Cop Out," with Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Sean William Scott for Warner Bros. Next out, Kevin co-stars with Luke Wilson, Gabriel Macht, Giovanni Ribisi and James Caan in George Gallo's "Middle Men," due out August 6th from Paramount Pictures. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival. In post production is "Columbus Circle," which Kevin wrote with the film's director, George Gallo. This film stars Jason Lee, Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Giovanni Ribisi, Jason Antoon, Beau Bridges and Kevin.
Kevin will wrap-up 2010 co-starring with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson in the "The Big Year" for director David Frankel (“The Devil Wears Prada”).
As a producer, the film version of the New York Times bestseller “Three Nights In August,” written by Pulitzer Prize winner Buzz Bissinger ("Friday Night Lights") and St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony LaRussa, as well as Kevin's directorial debut of a script he wrote. Academy Award winning actor Billy Bob Thornton has agreed to star in this contemporary film noir.
