Event Details

 

The Crest Theatre at Old School Square welcomes Catch A Rising Star Comedy for another season of serving the best up and coming comedians since 1972! Closing out the 2018-2019 season is actor/comedian, Tim Meadows!

Premium $39 / Regular $29

Meadows began performing improvisational comedy at the Soup Kitchen Saloon. Meadows’ start in show business was as a member of The Second City comedy troupe alongside future star Chris Farley. In 1991, Meadows landed a spot on Saturday Night Live and would go on to become a longtime cast member, appearing on the program until 2000. (This was the record for the longest tenure on the show until it was surpassed by Darrell Hammond in 2005.) Meadows’ lengthy tenure on the show was used as a gag in three monologues when former cast members Phil Hartman and Mike Myers returned to the show to host, and when Alec Baldwin hosted for his twelfth time.
 
Meadows often spoofed famous personalities including O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey and Erykah Badu on SNL, and one time remarked that he had no character that was identified to him, such as Wayne and Garth being identified to Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. Eventually he did get an original character with Leon Phelps, “The Ladies’ Man”, a perpetually horny talk show host who believed himself to be the living definition of what females search for in a man. The sketch/character was adapted into a 2000 film, The Ladies Man, which followed the character’s attempts to find love and a suitable outlet for his beloved radio program.
 
Meadows soon moved on to other projects, including a regular role on the short-lived NBC sitcom The Michael Richards Show and a supporting role in the 2004 film The Cookout. He also guest starred as a client on the hit NBC comedy The Office in the second-season episode “The Client”. He played a high school principal in Mean Girls, a film written by (and co-starring) fellow SNL cast member Tina Fey. He also had a part in Handsome Boy Modeling School’s album White People. In 2007, he appeared in a large supporting role in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.
 
Meadows has appeared in other feature films and TV shows including: Coneheads, It’s Pat, and Wayne’s World 2,  The Benchwarmers, Marry Me, No Activity, The Goldbergs, Bob’s Burgers, to name a few. Currently Meadows is starring on the ABC show SCHOOLED, a spinoff of The Goldbergs.
