Dave Foley

TV Land is excited to announce Dave Foley Hot in Cleveland guest starring as Bob, a private investigator.

Born January 4, 1963, Foley grew up in Toronto, Canada. As a kid, he loved watching comedy shows, particularly The Dick Van Dyke Show, with his family. He was extremely shy as a child, but he still showed an interest in comedy and spent his free time writing stories and jokes. He eventually overcame his shyness and dropped out of school to pursue a career as a standup comedian.

When he enrolled in classes at Toronto's Second City Theatre, he met fellow comedian Kevin McDonald, and they formed a double act. The two performed together during the 80s and later created the comedy group "The Kids in the Hall" with comedians Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch and Scott Thompson. This comedy troupe gained the attention of Lorne Michaels, which led to a TV show that debuted in Canada in 1988. The Kids in the Hall premiered in America a year later. During its five seasons, the show won a few Gemini awards and earned several Emmy nominations. Foley's additional television credits include NewsRadio, Committed, Becker, Just Shoot Me, What's New, Scooby Doo?, The King of Queens, Will & Grace, Dan Vs. and The Middle.

Foley has appeared in several movies as well. His acting and voiceover work includes It's Pat, The Wrong Guy, Hacks, Blast from the Past, Toy Story 2, Stark Raving Mad, Employee of the Month, Sky High, Cars, Last Call and A Bug's Life. He also lent his voice to the upcoming Disney/Pixar movie Monsters University.

Foley has also experienced a career behind the camera as a writer, director and producer. He currently lives in Los Angeles and has three children.
