If you’re a fan of Hollywood comedy shows, Jim Breuer wouldn’t be a new name for you. Well-known for portraying the ‘Goat Boy’ character from ‘Saturday Night Live’ show, Jim Breuer was a sensational name during the late 1990s. Today, let’s learn all about his career, personal life, and net worth in 2018.
Born as James E. Breuer in 1967 in Valley Stream, US, Jim Breuer is a versatile actor from America. Other than being an actor, he is also a musician, stand-up comedian, producer, and a radio host. Jim belongs to a middle-class family. His father is said to be a veteran of World War II. However, Jim never wanted to follow the suit of his father and was determined in making a successful career in the stand-up comedian. There is not much information about his education, but he is believed to be the classmate of his ‘Saturday Night Live’ co-star Fred Armison.

As a child, Jim was clear in mind with his dreams and passion, and maybe, this is what that made him one of the most popular stand-up comedians of his age. Initially, he worked as a stand-up comedian for the small comedy clubs. Soon, his talents got noticed, and he managed to bag a role in the blockbuster show ‘Saturday Night Live’ in 1995.
This is still the biggest breakthrough of his career. As the character of ‘Goat Boy’, he attracted a wide audience. For the next 3 years, he worked for the same show and excelled his skills. During this time, he also became the blue-eyed boy of endorsement brands which ultimately increased his popularity.
After ‘Saturday Night Live’, he started his own show ‘Jim Breuer Show’ which gained a huge success. Thereafter, his recognition helped him bag a leading role in the VH1 documentary ‘When Metallica ruled the World’. In these years, he also appeared in a radio show named ‘The Opie and Anthony Show’. By the time, he has earned enough popularity and experience to call himself an established actor. So, when time gave him the opportunity, he tried his hands in film producing and acting. Here again, success came to him. So far, he has worked only in a few films & shows such as ‘Half Baked’, Zookeeper’, ‘Titan A. E.’ and they all did well at the box office.
He also authored a book in 2010 entitled ‘I’m Not High’. However, it couldn’t impress the people.
