    Drew Carey & Cheryl Burke - Season 18


    Drew Carey
    Season 18

    Pro: Cheryl Burke


    Drew Carey is a stand-up comic turned actor and producer who had the distinction of having two hit shows simultaneously: the long-running comedy The Drew Carey Show, which ran from 1995-2004, and the improv/sketch show Whose Line Is It Anyway? on which he was host and a producer. The success of that show led to the creation of Drew Carey's Improv All-Stars, an improv troupe that performs in showrooms across the country. In July 2007, he was named the host of The Price Is Right, succeeding longtime host Bob Barker.

    He began his successful career as a comedian in April of 1986 at the Cleveland Comedy Club. In 1988, one of his first big breaks was competing on Star Search. In 1991, Carey landed a spot on HBO's 14th Annual Young Comedians Special and appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Carey landed his own television development deal with Disney, which led to an opportunity for him to co-star in the series The Good Life. He also had the opportunity to work with Bruce Helford, who was a consulting writer on the series and hired him as a staff writer for The Gaby Hoffman Show. Their experience led the two of them to decide to co-create a series for Carey. He went on to star in his own comedy special for Showtime, Drew Carey: Human Cartoon and performed in Showtime's Tenth Anniversary of the Montreal Comedy Festival.

    Carey was born in Cleveland, Ohio and currently resides in Los Angeles.

    I have no idea if he can dance at all, but I'm guessing maybe he can a little. Definitely a challenge for Cheryl, but she's a great teacher. I hope he'll be good enough to stay around for a while. always miss her when she's eliminated early.

    He has lost a lot of weight since I last saw him on whatever it was. That is quite a difference in his face. I bet he feels better - good for him.
    Take my advice. I am not using it.

    Given this season's cast I could see him going home very early, which is something you would never predict if someone told you Drew Carey was coming on the show.

    I have a feeling he'll be like Bill from last season. He will stink at the actual dancing part but his humor will keep him around long past his welcome.

    I'm REALLY looking forward to this pairing!

    I've ALWAYS liked Cheryl, and I liked Drew when he had his show.

    Glad he's lost some weight, but he TRULY looks different!

    Me, too.

    I remember reading/hearing awhile back that he'd lost a significant amount of weight, and seem to recall seeing a pic of him then. To me, he appeared at that time to look better --- obviously --- than he had prior to the weight loss, but not almost completely unrecognizable, like he does now.

    I suppose if I'd been following his subsequent shows closely, the weight loss/look wouldn't be as jarring to me as it is now.

    I hope he can dance well enough to stay around for a while. I love Cheryl & I've always liked Drew in everything he does. Just a likable guy.
