Seem to have misplaced it...

Anyone seen Dana Carvey's career? It was lying around here somewhere...

I saw three minutes of Opportunity Knocks on TV yesterday and it got me to thinking. You got your Mike Myers, you got your Dana Carvey, they have a nice little movie going with Wayne's World. Then Dana Carvey drops off the damned planet. Oh, he had Clean Slate, and recently he did The Master of Disguise, but why did he crash and burn? He did a few good impressions, and he's not an ugly man.

I mean, hell, he was in Spinal Tap! What potential! Is it really because he doesn't do the bodily fluid jokes like Mike Myers?

Dana Carvey fell off the face of the earth because of some kind of medical condition I thought. That master's of disguise movie was his first movie back after his health issues I thought.

I too, missed that. Who was he in Spinal Tap? I believe I may have been too mesmerized by Nigel's enormous banana to notice other salient details of said movie.

God I'm tired. Just call me Corpsey McMonkey.

He was one of the mime waiters in Spinal Tap. Billy Crystal was his supervisor.

I didn't realize he had open-heart surgery (IMDB) in 1997. I thought it was because the total gross from his three films after Wayne's World was $15.50. My bad.

Thank you Slappy! I could not retrieve that information, my brain being so small. I'll have to pull that DVD out of mothballs and watch it again.
