Ray Romano and his fumbling 'Aw shucks, I'm just your average Joe' attitude has served him well. His network sit-com 'Everybody Loves Raymond' has been at the top of the ratings since its inception in 1996, and its popularity shows no signs of stopping, even with the final season right around the corner.
Born in Forest Hills, New York, the self described lover of all things corny (yes, Air Supply included), Ray Romano has set the bar for comedic zest in producing one of the most appealing sit-coms since Seinfeld. His tender, lighthearted outlook on family - and the way they are sometimes too close for comfort - strikes chords all across America, and it can be seen through the accolades he's garnered.
He won an Emmy in 2002 for ELR, has been nominated twice for a Golden Globe, and for an AFI award. SAG, TV Guide, and the Television Critics Association have also recognized his talents. His CD 'Ray Romano: Live at Carnegie Hall' earned him a grammy nomination. He attended the 1998 White House Correspondents Dinner under President Bill Clinton.
Paying his dues as a comedian led to a stint as a writer for David Letterman, which in turn ushered in his sit-com deal for 'Everybody Loves Raymond.' Through this opportunity, he has had a chance to work with such powerhouses as Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, Dennis Miller, Regis Philbin, Craig Kilborn and Bob Barker. He has repeatedly been featured as one of the most loved television personalities of our generation.
