Hall of Fame
Jim Breuer, born on June 21, 1967 in Valley Stream, Long Island, has established himself as one of the most outrageous comedians in the U.S. through his incredible stand-up performances, charismatic stage antics and impressions, various television appearances, movie roles and his Sirius Satellite Radio show. In 1995, Jim joined NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” becoming best known for his original character “Goat Boy” and his impression of actor Joe Pesci, resulting in the recurring “Joe Pesci Show” sketch. In 1998, after a four-year stint on “SNL,” Jim starred in the movie “Half Baked,” alongside of comedian Dave Chappelle. That summer, MTV also invited the comedian to be a host on the popular show “MTV’s Beach House.” Additional appearances include numerous stints on NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” as well as roles in several movies, such as “Dick” (1999) and “Once in the Life” (2000), and in 2006, he made a cameo appearance in Artie Lange’s movie “Beer League.” Also in 2006, Jim was named as the new host of VH1’s popular show “Web Junk 20,” where he guides viewers through the top 20 viral clips of the week. Jim Breuer pioneered the “heavy-metal comedy” revolution, combining his love of rock ‘n’ roll with comedy. In July 2007, word of Breuer’s uncanny impression of Brian Johnson spread to the rock god himself, who personally requested that Jim sing with him live onstage during a John Entwistle Foundation benefit concert at BB King’s Blues Club in New York. Unlike other comedians, Jim also shows his fans a softer side with his “Family Man” show, where he brings hilarious anecdotes about being a family man to life through charismatic stage antics and impressions. In 2004, Jim began his career at Sirius Satellite Radio as the host of his own show “Breuer Unleashed” on RawDog 104. Along with co-hosts, comedian Pete Correale and his high school buddies Larry Schneidmuller and Jimmy “Shaka,” Airing live weekdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST, “Breuer Unleashed” is celebrating its third year on Sirius.
