Steve Carrell studied and graduated from Denison University in Granville, Ohio. However, he took acting at Chicago's Second City troupe so it is correct he has no formal acting education. Carell made his film debut in 1991 as Tesio in Curly Sue. From 1990-1996 he taught improvisational comedy class and also performed with The Second City troupe in Chicago. During the 1990s he was writing for The Dana Carvey Show and then he had a stint as one of correspondents on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
