Bio For: Ray Romano
(The Latest Available Bio)

RAY ROMANO (Jerry Cardozo) was the star of one of the most respected sitcoms in television history, "Everybody Loves Raymond," a huge hit for CBS. Romano won numerous awards including a 2002 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. As one of the show's executive producers, he shared in Emmy wins in 2003 and 2005 for Outstanding Comedy Series. In 2003 the cast won a SAG Award for Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Romano also won three People's Choice Awards for Favorite Male TV Performer and shared in another when "Everybody Loves Raymond" was named Favorite Television Comedy in 2006. Romano is currently reprising his role as photographer Hank Rizzoli on the NBC series "Parenthood," now in its fifth season.

The actor has starred in such films as Eulogy, with Zooey Deschanel; Welcome to Mooseport, opposite Gene Hackman; Grilled, with Kevin James and Burt Reynolds; and The Last Word, alongside Winona Ryder and Wes Bentley. In 2006 Romano was the subject of 95 Miles to Go, a documentary about his life on tour.

Romano never gave stand-up comedy any serious thought until one fateful open-mic night at a New York comedy club in 1984. Positive response from audiences encouraged him to pursue stand-up full time. Romano performed regularly at comedy clubs across the country, which led to appearances on "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" (and later with Jay Leno) as well as "Late Night with David Letterman." Letterman recognized something unique in Romano's persona and offered him a development deal with his production company, Worldwide Pants, which led to "Everybody Loves Raymond."

Romano made his big-screen debut as the voice of Manny the wooly mammoth in the blockbuster hit Ice Age. He reprised his role in the wildly successful sequels Ice Age: The Meltdown, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Ice Age: Continental Drift.

Romano is the author of The New York Times bestseller Everything and a Kite, which was inspired by his comedy. In collaboration with his brothers Bobby and Rich Romano, he wrote the children's book Raymie, Dickie, and the Bean: Why I Love and Hate My Brothers, which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2006 for Best Spoken Word album. Romano's comedy album "Live at Carnegie Hall" was nominated for a Grammy in 2002.

In 2009 Romano teamed with Mike Royce, a fellow stand-up comedian from New York and "Everybody Loves Raymond" writer, to create and star in the one-hour series "Men of a Certain Age." The series, which also starred Scott Bakula and Andre Braugher, ran for two seasons on TNT and won the Peabody Award in 2011.

Romano resides in Los Angeles with his wife Anna and their four children.
