Drew Carey      

Actor, Voice Actor & Comedian; Sports Executive; Game Show Host

Drew Carey is an actor, voice actor, comedian, sports executive and game show host. After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps and making a name for himself in stand-up comedy, he gained stardom in his own sitcom, "The Drew Carey Show," and as host of the U.S. version of the improv comedy show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?," both of which aired on ABC. He then appeared in several films, television series, music videos, a made-for-television film, and a computer game. He has hosted the game show "The Price Is Right" since 2007 on CBS.

Carey is interested in a variety of sports and has worked as a photographer at U.S. National Team soccer games. He is a minority owner of the Major League Soccer team Seattle Sounders FC, which won the championship in 2016. He briefly participated in professional wrestling, most notably entering the 2001 Royal Rumble, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011.

Carey garnered attention after People magazine reported that the comedian claimed to have stopped his type 2 diabetes – and the need to take any medications for it – by shedding 80 pounds through a diet in which he almost completely gave up eating carbohydrates.

Carey's autobiography, "Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined," details his early life and television career.
