Tropicana presents Dana Carvey Live in Atlantic City, NJ on Friday 7/11/2014 at 8:00 PM
As if comedy were his destiny, Dana Carvey got his name because his parents were hoping for a girl that they were going to name Dana. When they got a boy they named him Dana anyway.
Things were really lightning up for Dana in 1986 when he had the chance of being on the cast of SNL. The choices came down to him and Jim Carrey. Because he won the laughter of the audience with his comedic wit and dead on impersonations, Dana was chosen as a cast member over Jim Carrey. Dana turned out to become a living legend on SNL.
Most fans of this generation will recognize Dana as Garth Algar form the hit comedy Wayne's World with Mike Myers as Wayne, and many more. Also, Dana's accurate impressions won the love of his fans with characters including George Bush Sr., Johnny Carson, Jimmy Stewart, H. Ross Perot, Regis Philbin, Neil Young, Keith Richards, Paul McCartney, Dennis Miller, Robin Leach and more.
