Birthplace: River Forest, Illinois, USA

Kevin Murphy was a key member of the team behind the cult comedy classic "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (KTMA 1988-89 / The Comedy Channel 1989-1991 / Comedy Central 1991-96 / SciFi 1997-99), both behind the scenes and as the voice of gumball-machine-shaped puppet Tom Servo. After that series ended its acclaimed run in 1999, Murphy went on to explore its defining concept -- making fun of really cheesy movies -- in concert with his fellow MST3K alums Michael J. Nelson and Bill Corbett, first as The Film Crew and then as RiffTrax. With his immediately identifiable baritone voice and dry, sardonic delivery, Murphy was perhaps the most immediately identifiable member of the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" cast, although he almost never appeared in front of the camera without heavy makeup.
