American actor and stand-up comedian, known for his work as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" and for playing the role of Garth Algar in the "Wayne's World" films.

He is well known for his impersonations of George H. W. Bush and Ross Perot and for playing The Church Lady and Hans (from Hans and Franz), all on "Saturday Night Live." Carvey's work on the show won him an Emmy Award in 1993 for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program.

In 1997, Carvey underwent heart bypass surgery for a blocked coronary artery, but the surgeon operated on the wrong artery. Carvey, later suffering from angina pectoris, sued for medical malpractice and was awarded $8 million in damages. He donated the money to charity. He has had to undergo additional surgery to correct his heart problems.
