After graduation, for six years he sold asphalt for his father's company, Scotch Oil. However, Chris soon convinced him to try show business. Kevin first went on stage at the Chicago ImprovOlympic.Farley eventually moved to Chicago and studied at the famed Second City. The minute he relocated to Los Angeles he began landing roles in films such as Tommy Boy and Black Sheep.

After that Farley appeared in numerous TV series programs such as That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Joey, Just Shoot Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm and many more.

The supporting cast included Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper, and Leslie Nielsen Soon to be released this fall is the feature film Hollywood and Wine, which Farley co-wrote, directed and stars in.
