What’s New With Kevin
Kevin’s latest 1 hour stand-up comedy special, The Littlest Suspect thrilled new fans and old alike this past year on TV and is now available on iTunes, Amazon.com and at http://KevinPollak.tv, where Kevin’s tour dates are listed as well.
In the summer of 2012 he co-stars in Rob Reiner’s The Magic of Belle Island with Morgan Freeman and Virginia Madsen, and then at Christmas he stars in Saving Santa.
In 2012, an avid poker player, Kevin broke the World Series of Poker Main Event record for celebrity players, coming in 134th!
Kevin plays poker on behalf of Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org), an international non-profit organization devoted to builidng “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for families.
Kevin Pollak has taken over the internet! Having started as a stand-up comedian, and then clearly when no one was looking, becoming an award-winning dramatic actor, Pollak decided three years ago he needed to capture yet another creative flag. This time around, he would forge new ground in the now wildly popular world of creative content online. Within six weeks of the launch of Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show, his weekly live streaming one-on-one talk show made famed Column One on the front page of the Los Angeles Times.
Often averaging two hours with film directors like Jason Reitman, Christopher Guest, Jane Campion, James L. Brooks and John Landis (who has the record length at two hours and fifty-two minutes) as well as TV and film stars like Paul Rudd, Jon Hamm, Billy Bob Thorton, Virginia Madsen, Neil Patrick Harris, Matthew Perry, Lauren Graham, Ed O’Neill, sports legends like Sugar Ray Leonard and, of course comedians like Jim Gaffigan, Eddie Izzard, Dana Carvey, Craig Ferguson, Nick Swardson and Demetri Martin, not to mention luminaries like Henry Winkler, Martin Mull, Harry Shearer and Fred Willard! Oh, and Weird Al Yankovic, too!
March 15th will mark 3 years since the show started and if you’d like to watch it live, the show streams live every Sunday at 3pm, PST, at KevinPollaksChatShow.com and then seen and/or heard on iTunes, and now the entire library and all new shows are available on Hulu.com.
Oh, but Kevin wasn’t done with the interwebs… Oh no. After becoming so well known for his Christopher Walken impression, that he’s listed 1st (out of literally hundreds) when you Google the sentence: “Christopher Walken impression,” Kevin launched a comedy podcast called Talkin Walkin. Yep. It’s Kevin speaking only as Walken for an hour about life and the cornucopia of crap that fills it. Joining Kevin each week is an actor and/or comedian friend. This podcast can be heard on iTunes as well as TalkinWalkin.com.
As an actor, Kevin has co-starred in almost 70 films, including A Few Good Men, Casino, The Usual Suspects, and most recently in Kevin Smith’s Red State and then in Columbus Circle, which he also co-wrote with the film’s director George Gallo (Midnight Run).
