Dana Carvey talks about his life and career
Things can go wrong. Dana Carvey knows this as surely as he feels the permanent ache in his shoulder, the never-healed separation from that time on Saturday Night Live when he was pretending to be Rob Petrie, tripped over the ottoman, and landed more painfully than he’d planned. And then, in 1990, there was that other crash landing, the one that dented his ego so badly he wondered if he could ever again present himself to the public without a wig, an accent, or a cute little signature phrase. Opportunity Knocks was the name of the film.
