Biography

Canadian Dave Foley was born on January 4, 1963 in Etobicoke, Ontario. He is an actor who started his career immediately after dropping out of high school. He did stand up comedy for a year then went on to take improv classes where he met Kevin McDonald, giving him a job as an usher at a local theater. Kevin McDonald, together with Dave Foley founded The Kids in the Hall. Soon after that he appeared in different movies including the comedy The Wrong Guy, A Bug's Life, cameos for Toy Story 2, Cars and voice-overs for South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Other movies include Monkeybone, Blast from the Past, Sky High, and On the Line. Appearances on television shows include Becker, Just Shoot Me!, Las Vegas, and Will & Grace. He married Tabitha Southey in 1991, had two children and divorced in 1997. He married Crissy Guerrero in 2002 and had a daughter.

Dave Foley is the judge for Thank God You're Here, a US TV series which basically showcases actors and actresses who have to act without a script to lead them, except for the costumes that would give them a clue to the identity that they're supposed to be playing. Everyone aside from the principal actor has a script except that they have to act in a sketch, meaning that it doesn't end until the buzzer says so. Every time an actor comes in, they are greeted with "Thank God you're here!" as the sketch goes on and on. He later got cast in the CBS comedy How to Be a Gentleman, with Kevin Dillon and David Hornsby. He was also on Desperate Housewives, the series Dan vs., and had appearances on How I Met Your Mother and Friends with Benefits.
