He is a late bloomer. Right up through college--he was expelled from Kent State University for poor academic performance--Drew Carey had yet to find his way. Still searching, he joined the Marines and served for 8 years. Upon his discharge he won an open-mic contest in 1986 and became an MC at the Cleveland Comedy Club. There he polished his timing and jokes for a few years before landing a shot on The Tonight Show in 1991. And then it happened: a unique career topped by few in the last 18 years including the ABC hit sit-com, The Drew Carey Show, followed by hosting duties on Who's Line Is It Anyway, The Price Is Right, and Power of 10.
