Biography

Chicagoan Terry Kiser has been a member of the movie character-actor pool since 1968. Kiser hasn't exactly scaled the heights of fame with such films as Friday the 13th Part VII, but he has paid his bills on time. His TV work has included a stint as Dr. John Rice on NBC's The Doctors, a recurring role as reporter Al Craven on the popular sitcom Night Court, and a sojourn as a member of Carol Burnett's repertory players on 1990's Carol & Company. Terry Kiser's most memorably recent film assignment has been as the scene-stealing corpse (!) in the two Weekend at Bernie's comedies of the 1990s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
