James broke into the film world in 2005 in Columbia Pictures’ Hitch starring opposite Will Smith, but his comedy career started well before that as a stand-up on the Long Island comedy scene.  After being discovered at the 1996 Montreal Comedy Festival, he signed a network development deal to create his own sitcom which became the enormously successful The King of Queens. The show enjoyed an 8-season run through 2007 and continues to air daily in syndication across the country and around the world.
In 2001, James brought his stand-up act to TV with Sweat the Small Stuff, a one-hour special for Comedy Central.  In 2005, Kevin James and Ray Romano executive produced and starred in the HBO Sports Special Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach; a documentary about the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Tournament that was nominated for a Sports Emmy.
Aside from his on-camera work, James’s voice has been featured in the animated films Barnyard (2006) for Nick Movies, as well as Monster House (2006) and Hotel Transylvania (2012) for Sony Pictures Animation.
