Today, Kevin James also announced his highly anticipated family-friendly stand-up comedy special, “Kevin James: Irregardless.” Premiering this winter on Prime Video, James delivers his hilarious unfiltered take on parenting, marriage and getting older. As only he can, James will cover a range of topics from motivating children to put down their video games, to why he doesn’t trust technology, and how many tater tots he can fit in his mouth.
James began his career as a stand-up on the Long Island comedy scene. After being discovered at the 1996 Montreal Comedy Festival, he signed a network development deal to create his sitcom.
“The King of Queens” premiered in 1998 and ran for nine seasons on CBS, with James starring and executive producing. It garnered him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. The show concluded its run in 2007 but continues to air daily in syndication across the country and around the world. James also starred in and executive produced “The Crew,” a sitcom set in the world of NASCAR and is currently developing a single-camera comedy (both for Netflix).
James brought his stand-up act to TV in 2001 with “Sweat the Small Stuff,” a one-hour special for Comedy Central. James and Ray Romano executive produced and starred in the “HBO Sports Special Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach,” a documentary about the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Tournament that was nominated for a Sports Emmy. His second comedy special, “Never Don’t Give Up” premiered on Netflix to critical acclaim. James was the producer, co-writer and star of the hit comedies “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” 1 & 2, “Zookeeper” and “Here Comes the Boom.” James made his feature film debut in Columbia Pictures’ “Hitch” starring opposite Will Smith, and starred alongside Adam Sandler in “Pixels,” “Grown Ups,” “Grown Ups 2,” “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” and “Hubie Halloween.” He starred in the feature “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” for Netflix, the independent action thriller “Becky” and starred in and produced “Home Team” for Netflix.
