Drew Carey's career in comedy has ranged from his anti-hero character in the popular "Drew Carey Show," opposite the grinningly evil boss played by Craig Ferguson, to his appearance in "Fuck: A Documentary," to hosting the American version of the hilarious improv show, "Whose Line is it Anyway?" and more recently, as host of the popular game show, "The Price is Right." I like him for his sarcasm and his dramatic silent smirk that perfectly conveys exactly what kind of shade he's slinging at a subject. He's also written an autobiographical book, "Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined," which details his early life and television career.
