Where Are They Now - Friday, August 4, 2017
One of my absolute favorite TV shows of all-time is 'The Drew Carey Show'. At the time, in my opinion, it was the best thing on TV. One of main reasons for this was the character of Mimi Bobeck, played by Kathy Kinney. She was one of the funniest, most memorable characters ever to grace the small screen.
Kathy Kinney has been a sitcom staple before and since she played Mimi. She is a truly gifted actress and comedian.
Let's find out what she's been up to...

CLAIM TO FAME:
The role of Mimi Bobeck on 'The Drew Carey Show'.
Kathy Kinney is an American actress and comedian. She gained considerable popularity in the late 1990s for playing Mimi Bobeck, the outrageously made-up, flamboyantly vulgar, and vindictive nemesis of Drew Carey on the sitcom 'The Drew Carey Show'. She had been involved with television, feature films, and stage work for years.
In the early 1980s she was a secretary at WCBS-TV in New York while she pursued her comedic acting/improvisation career.
