What happened to Drew Carey?

I loved his TV show. Very funny guy and the show ran a long time. Now he is a host for the Price is Right and I have to say he isn't very good at it. Why didn't he go on and do something else interesting?

He attends every Seattle Sounders game. He doesn't even look the same. I didn't recognize him when I was at the game, sitting about 15ft away from him. His hair color is different, he had Lasik so he no longer needs glasses (he often still wears them though because it's such a large part of his image), he lost a bunch of weight too.

If they ever do a comedy show about Dilbert, Carey would be Dilbert.

Suffered from clogged arteries and numerous other long term health problems from being fat and drunk for most of his life. Tried to clean up his act around 2004 and unfortunately rebounded. Approaching 300 pounds and suffering from complications from diabetes, he finally seems to have figured out how to make healthy living into a lifestyle, dropped the weight and got healthy enough to reverse the major diabetes symptoms.

Now he runs a clean show that middle America adores.

Good on him.

Evidently hosting a game show is easy money. They film a couple of weeks in a couple of days and you have lots of time off to do whatever it is you want to do, another tv show or movies or comedy gigs or write a book or raise llamas or lie in your hot tub.

Depends upon the host and producers to no small extent. The ones that I worked on were tough jobs, all but one involving an astonishing amount of dedication and a bit of masochism from the support staff and writers to carry it. That other one... The host was the showrunner and never let up, micromanaged, did everything short of painting the sets and seating the audience by himself.

He only took the Price is Right job to be closer to Mr. Wick. Craig Ferguson 'taped' his Late Late Show right above the PiR studio.

Drew is a minority owner of the Sounders. That's why he is always around.

Still has to be much easier than memorizing a ton of inane dialogue for a traditional TV series.

And did Wayne Brady ever really ever make much from TV (IIRC all his shows flopped) before hosting Let's Make a Deal?

Try Google. You have heard of Google, yes?

Or did you click on a thread about someone you never heard of because you got confused?
