What Happened To All Our Favorite Characters From 'The Drew Carey Show'?

- Page 1

Zane's Mall of Comedy

The beloved show that made us hold our stomachs as we laughed off tears went on for nine seasons until it ended in 2004.

When the first season came out in 1995, we were all giddy with excitement. The fictionalized version of the life of the former host of Whose Line Is It Anyway? was relatable and amusing.

However, not everyone could appreciate the show because it stood in the shadows of popular sitcoms like Seinfeld, Friends, The Simpsons, and Everybody Loves Raymond.

That being said, for those who did love this show, here's what your favorite characters have been up to since they aired the last episode.

Lewis Kiniski (Ryan Stiles)

Known for his improv comedy on Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Ryan was perhaps the most loved character on the show. Ryan played on Two and a Half Men for several years, and is still on the rebooted version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? with host Aisha Tyler.

Nigel Wick (Craig Ferguson)

Considered one of Great Britain's leading comedians, Craig has had a great career since his departure from the show. He's done a couple TV special documentaries and hosted the show The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Kate O'Brien (Christa Miller)

Since she left the show in 2004, Christa has gone on to play various roles in popular TV shows like Scrubs, CSI: Miami, and Cougar Town.

Oswald Lee Harvey (Diedrich Bader)

Like his other co-stars, Diedrich has been pretty busy voicing animated shows like Ultimate Spider-Man and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. Do you remember him playing Rex in Napoleon Dynamite? He's seriously been around. He also appeared in episodes of Veep and Two and a Half Men.

'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he


20 Statements You Haven't Heard Since You Were A Kid That'll Flood Your Brain With Memories

Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous. Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids. We are really lucky to have grown up in the time that we did, because we have gotten to experience the insanely fast technological advances that have been going on. Remember your first internet experience? You can probably still hear


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show
