Best known for his three-year run on Fox’s Mad TV, Pat Kilbane made his mark on the show with outrageous physical comedy and uncanny celebrity impressions. Among his more memorable characters were “Stan the Java Man,” the shady “Spishak” spokesman, and the floppy superhero, “Rubberman.” Kilbane’s impressions are too numerous to list, but notably his mimicry of Howard Stern and Lyle Lovett fooled some viewers into believing that the stars actually appeared on the show.
After Mad TV, Kilbane was signed to a two-year deal with Dreamworks, during which he appeared in the movies Evolution and Eurotrip, and on ABC’s hit show Spin City. He later added to his menagerie of characters with appearances on My Name is Earl and in the films Day of the Dead, Semi-Pro, and Meet Dave.
Raised in Dayton, Ohio, Kilbane earned his bachelor’s degree in French from Beloit College before beginning his career as a stand-up comedian. He headlined clubs throughout the United States and was featured on Showtime’s Full Frontal Comedy as well as A&E’s Evening at the Improv and Comedy on the Road. After moving to Los Angeles, he appeared in over a dozen national commercials, made guest appearances on The Single Guy and Arli$$, and played the role of the “Anti Kramer” in the Emmy nominated Seinfeld episode “The Bizarro Jerry.”
Now a writer and producer of science-fiction, Kilbane penned The Brain Eater’s Bible, a zombie book published by St. Martin’s Press.
