host of the fictional public affairs show, Perspectives, as well as uncanny impressions of O.J. Simpson, Ike Turner and Sammy Davis, Jr.

Born in Highland Park, Michigan, and raised in Detroit, Meadows studied television and radio broadcasting at Wayne State University before performing improvisational comedy at the Soup Kitchen Saloon. In 1985, Meadows relocated to Chicago, where he first joined ImprovOlympic and then the legendary comedy troupe Second City. During three years at Second City, Meadows wrote and starred in productions of "The Gods Must Be Lazy," with Chris Farley; "It Was Thirty Years Ago Today"; and "Flag Smoking Permitted in Lobby Only," gaining a loyal following with his sharp comedic talent.

In 1991, Meadows achieved the dreams of comics nationwide when producer Lorne Michaels asked him to join "Saturday Night Live" as a featured player. Nominated for an Emmy as part of the show's writing team that same month, Meadows made the transition to cast member status two years later.

Several years after appearing in a string of films based on "Saturday Night Live" sketches, including "Coneheads" and "Wayne's World 2," Meadows was offered his own chance at features. The 2000 release of Paramount's "The Ladies Man" gave the eponymous hero Leon Phelps the opportunity to bring his Courvoisier-drinking romantic adviser to the big screen. That year, he left SNL to join NBC's prime-time line-up as a regular cast member on "The Michael Richards Show" and, in 2002, joined the cast of the NBC sitcom "Leap of Faith."

Meadows played a school principal in the hit comedy "Mean Girls" and most recently co-starred in the Revolution comedy "Benchwarmers." His recent films include "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" with John C. Reilly and "Semi-Pro" with Will Farrell. Meadows can also be seen in "Aliens in the Attic" with Kevin Nealon and Ashley Tisdale. He is a regular correspondent on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" on CBS and "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central.
