Last year he blew everyone away, Key West audiences said it was the funniest show of the year. Comedian Jim Breuer is back at the Key West Theater, Friday March 16 for two shows. His rise to fame started with Saturday Night Live back in the ’90s, his infamous “Goat Boy” and Joe Pesci impersonations eventually helped boost his status on Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.” Then the movie “Half Baked” with Dave Chappelle, which is still popular today, cemented his cult following. He is still in the spotlight, appearing recently on CBS’s “Kevin Can Wait” and on stage as a musician with his longtime backing band, The Loud & Rowdy.
But Breuer is a family man, baseball lover, a down-to-earth kind of guy, who’s pleased to say he’s been “F-word free for 10 years and counting.” He won’t talk politics but life, in a gut-wrenching, hilarious way. “My huge focus is, ‘listen, stop getting caught up in the hoopla, the news, politics and all that jazz,’” he says. “I’m here to say that life isn’t that horrendous. Can you still eat? Can you still watch your 60-inch plasma TV? Call me when you have to eat a squirrel for breakfast, okay?”
