Drew Carey - The Advocates for Self-Government
Biography, picture and quotes
"Here's what TV sitcom star Drew Carey doesn't like: censorship, anti-smoking laws, drug laws, immigration laws, 'stupid big government in general' -- and award shows. (They're 'publicity stunts' for needy actors, he explains.) Here's what Drew Carey does like: freedom, competition, free minds, free markets, and -- he won't deny -- beer, dirty jokes, and gambling."


Stand-Up Guy: Comedian Drew Carey on network censors, Hollywood guilt, and why he likes eating at Bob's Big Boy, by Drew Carey, Nick Gillespie, Steve Kurtz, Reason, Nov 1997
Topics range from Hollywood reactions to Carey's humor, his attitude toward government, the ABC network censor, Las Vegas, drug legalization and more
"Comedian Drew Carey has become a full-fledged media sensation ... Carey's appeal stems in large part from his Everyman status. ... In his sitcom, ... [he] is the consummate working stiff, besieged on all sides by an indifferent employer, hostile co-workers, aimless friends, and a strong sense of his own inadequacy and lack of success. From this potentially grim reality, Carey squeezes immense humor (and precious little sentimentality)."
