A native of Buffalo, NY, Bakay graduated from Kenyon College in Ohio and later earned an M.F.A. from the Professional Acting Program at SMU in Dallas, Texas. After moving to New York, he spent the early part of his acting career performing in numerous theater productions. At the same time, he became a contributing editor for The National Lampoon Magazine, which led to a writing job and starring roles in two cable series, "Night After Night" and "Sports Monster."
After landing a job as a writer and sidekick/announcer on the syndicated "The Dennis Miller Show," Bakay decided it was time to move to Los Angeles. Since that time, he has written and performed in numerous television series including "What's So Funny?" "She TV," "In Living Color," and Comedy Central's "Baseballapalooza" and "NFL Offsides." He has also guest-starred in the comedy series "Coach," "Ellen," "Grace Under Fire," "Seinfeld" and "That 70's Show."
For the first four seasons of "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," Bakay was a writer/producer on the show. This season, he takes on that role on "The King of Queens." Additionally, for the past six years, Bakay has written segments and commentary for ESPN and ESPN.com. He is also the host of "Reel Classics" on ESPN Classic.
Bakay currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, with his wife, Robin, a writer; along with their dog and two cats.
