Breuer gained national attention as a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 1995 to 1998 during a rebuilding year that included Will Ferrell, David Spade, and Norm Macdonald. While on the show, he made audiences laugh with several characters including “Goat Boy,” and hilarious celebrity impersonations that included Joe Pesci.

Comedy Central lists Breuer as one of the “100 Greatest Standups of All Time,” and his 2009 special “Let’s Clear The Air” was one of the network’s highest rated comedy specials. Over the years, Breuer has cleaned up his act (he has been F-word free for over a decade), and his standup material focuses on the fun aspects of family life.

On his website, Breuer states, “My career reached a new level when I started to raise a family of my own and realized I should stick to what I know, what everyone could relate to no matter their socio-economic status.”

In addition to performing at comedy clubs and venues across the country, he has appeared in multiple films, including Half Baked, Zookeeper, Titan A.E., and Beer League, among others. He has also been featured on such shows as Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and The Marriage Ref.
