Kevin Pollak started as stand-up comedian in San Francisco and became a touring pro by age Twenty. A few years later he rose to the top of the SF stand-up scene and moved to Los Angeles with dreams of appearing on The Tonight Show w/ Johnny Carson, and being in movies… 200 auditions later, he landed a few tv and film gigs, which proved enough to get him to the couch of Carson’s Tonight Show. Kevin instantly became a regular, appearing on the show two or three times a year until Johnny’s retirement.

In 1992, Pollak’s role in Rob Reiner’s “A Few Good Men,” proved his ability to stand out on the big screen among cinematic icons. The unplanned transformation of Kevin becoming a dramatic actor was further established two years later, when he co-starred in “The Usual Suspects” and Martin Scorsese’s “Casino” in the same year. In 29 years Kevin has co-starred in 78 films.

Kevin co-starred on a few television series in 2014 and 2015. Appearing opposite Allison Janney and Anna Farris in “Mom” in its first two seasons, as well as co-starring with Jane Lynch in “Angel From Hell,” and can currently be seen playing ‘Moishe Maisel’ on Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Pollak co-starred in five films in 2016. THE TIGER HUNTER and BOREALIS kicked off the year, and in the spring, Kevin co-starred with Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana in the Netflix feature film, SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS, which Gervais also wrote and directed. The summer had Pollak appearing alongside Jonah Hill and Miles Teller in Todd Phillips’ film, WAR DOGS, and in the fall, Kevin starred opposite the legendary Jerry Lewis in MAX ROSE. Kevin has already co-starred in two films for a 2017 release: “Three Christs,” w/ Richard Gere, Peter Dinklage, Julianna Margulies and Walton Goggins for Jon Avnet, as well as “Lez Bomb,” w/ Jenna Laurenzo and Bruce Dern.

Pollak’s first outing as a director, the comedy documentary MISERY LOVES COMEDY, premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. The film also shot to #1 on iTunes in just two days for documentaries. Later that year, Kevin directed the indie comedy, “The Late Bloomer,” based on a true story of a man who didn’t experience puberty until age 30. The film stars Johnny Simmons, Brittany Snow, Jane Lynch, J.K. Simmons, Maria Bello, Kumail Nanjiani and Beck Bennett. Releasing in select theaters in the fall of 2016, the film was also purchased by Netflix and is available now.

Kevin never forgot his first love, and released another one-hour stand-up comedy special, “The Littlest Suspect” a couple of years ago. He was named by Comedy Central as one of the Top 100 Comedians of all Time. Also in 2013, Kevin released his autobiography, “How I Slept My Way to The Middle."

Pollak was also a pioneer in the podcast world. His award-winning Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show (described as “Charlie Rose, but fun”) debuted in March of ’09. If the longest on-camera conversations creative icons like Tom Hanks or Elon Musk have ever given interests you, there are now almost 300 interviews to choose from at Kevinpollak.tv and Youtube.
