Jim Breuer

Media Title

Those who stopped paying attention to Jim Breuer after Half Baked did so at their own peril. The former Saturday Night Live cast member, while mostly failing to make a movie career out of looking like he’s high all the time, has made a pretty successful career out of hitting the road over the decades. Named one of the top 100 stand-up comedians of all time in 2005, Breuer has—for 20 years—continued delighting audiences internationally with his wired brand of stoner humor, and based on his schedule, isn’t slowing down. But he is changing.

In a recently interview with Westword, Denver’s alt-weekly, Breuer noted that his show is pretty much a family-friendly experience—even if it’s not necessarily for kids. “[Children] can’t relate to shit with my wife or my father,” he said. “But it’s clean. Is it Disney? No. It’s real life. It’s Cosby with a Metallica jacket.”

Also missing from his stand-up are any stoner scenarios from his past sets. Why? Because he doesn’t even smoke pot anymore. According to Breuer’s impressively titled 2010 autobiography, I’m Not High (But I’ve Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior), his bong’s gone, and he’s even got a motivational speaker thing going with his act—if it is, in fact, an act anymore. Interested in what that’s like? Hit Helium this week. / RANDY LOBASSO
