From Long Island, New York…Weighing in at a hundred and blah blah blah.... Valentine is well known for his nine seasons as “Cousin Danny” on the hit CBS sitcom The King of Queens, his frequent appearances as a round table comedian on the popular E! Network late-night talk show Chelsea Lately, and his role in the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning FX show Fargo.
Elsewhere on the small screen, Valentine notably appeared on the television show Men of a Certain Age, which was written and directed by Ray Romano, and met with critical acclaim.
Prior to his run on the series, he starred in his own half hour special on Comedy Central along with hosting The X Show on FX. This year, Valentine joined fellow celebrity comedians as
commentators on the hilarious new FOX show World’s Funniest Fails.
Valentine got his start in show business on the stand up comedy stage. After an appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival, he left his native New York for heavier traffic in Los Angeles. There, Valentine quickly landed spots on various talk shows including, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, among others. He’s been headlining comedy clubs and theaters ever since.
On the big screen, Valentine’s most recent project, Paul Bart: Mall Cop 2, was released in April 2015. In 2012 he starred in the film Here Comes the Boom alongside Salma Hayek, Kevin James, and Henry Winkler. Gary has worked alongside such Hollywood heavyweights as Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear (Stuck on You) and Adam Sandler (I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry). In addition to a number of specials for the Comedy Central Network, as well as a cameo in Jerry
Seinfeld's lauded documentary, Comedian, he can be seen in such films as Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Zookeeper, and Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury, along with the independent short film Alive ‘n’ Kickin.
Valentine is convinced that Adam Sandler said, “GV will be one of People magazines 100 sexiest stars......soon.”
