A comedy veteran of more than 35 years, Rick Overton has been performing in front of brick walls when they were actually made out of bricks and not vacu-formed plastic. In case you’re wondering why you haven’t seen him on late night network TV talk shows for a while, come see his latest act and put it together. He was doing social and political comedy when it was REALLY not popular to do.
He has an Emmy Award for writing on the HBO series Dennis Miller Live. Done several HBO comedy specials. Taught Comedy for Judy Carter and others. Worked clubs from one end to the other of this country and others for years. Been on countless episodics including an major recurring in the CBS series Chaos and in over 100 feature films. Most recently in Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz and Dinner for Schmucks with Steve Carell. Next to be seen in the Indie feature Noobz and the comedy The Babymakers with Olivia Munn and Paul Schneider.
One glance at You Tube or Google Video will show that he is like a bottle of fine wine. He gets better with age, and should be stored in a cool, dark part of the cellar.
