Kevin James was bornon 26 April 1965 in Mineola, American. Kevin James, born as Kevin George Knipfing, is an actor cum comedian who is famous for playing the character Doug Heffernan on the CBS sitcom ‘The King of Queens’. Acting was never the initial career choice for this funny and loveable comedian; playing sports was his first love. As a school student he used to play football and was an excellent tailback. He was also a talented athlete who participated in wrestling matches. Wishing to make a career out of his passion he took up sports management in university. However he realized within a few semesters that this was not what he really wanted to do. Out of boredom during his summer break he auditioned for a comedic role in a community theatre production and bagged the role. He loved performing comedy so much that he decided to pursue it as a career. He joined his brother Gary Valentine’ improv group and performed with them. He got his first big break when he was offered a five minute stand-up slot at a comedy club. He was a roaring success and had the audience rolling in hysterical laughter. Soon he made his transition into television where he played his most famous role as Doug Heffernan. The talented comedian has also appeared in a number of films.
