But what else do we know about the often-mustachioed funnyman? After doing some digging, here’s what we learned about his family, including his brilliant wife.
Who is Kevin Heffernan's wife?
We were unable to verify his spouse’s name, but Kevin has frequently bragged about the fact that he’s married to a doctor (a gynecologist, to be specific). He did a whole bit about her during a 2016 Comedy Central special titled Below the Belt With Kevin Heffernan & Steve Lemme.
"My wife’s a much smarter person than I am. Well, I married above my pay grade. No, I hit the jackpot," he admitted in his routine.
"My wife is a doctor. Pretty good. Farva married a doctor," the father of three added, referring to his famous Super Troopers character. "There was some love involved, but she’s a f--king doctor, come on, man."
Kevin confessed that he’s willing to put up with almost anything in order to keep his wife around. "She chews with her mouth open, who cares? She snores, who cares? She’s got a d--k, who gives a s--t?" he teased.
Unfortunately, he missed the mark when it came to the type of doctor he should be marrying. "Growing up, I always hated going to the doctor’s," Kevin explained. "I figured, marry a doctor, you don’t have to go to the doctor’s anymore. … Here’s where I f--ked up. My wife’s a gynecologist, and I don’t have a vagina."
Does Kevin Heffernan have kids?
It’s unclear when exactly Kevin and his wife tied the knot, but in a 2014 interview, Kevin revealed that they have three kids together.
According to one enthusiastic fan, who claimed to know the pair, Kevin and his wife make a great couple. "Kevin’s the best! And his wife is super cool, too. Our daughters played soccer together," someone commented on a 2018 Deadline article about Tacoma FD. We do love a soccer dad!
Kevin developed his show, 'Tacoma FD,' with the help of his firefighter cousin.
The show, which takes place in a Tacoma, Wash. firehouse, was inspired by Kevin’s cousin, Bill, who is a Lieutenant with the West Haven Fire Department in Connecticut. Bill had been giving him a hard time ever since Super Troopers (a film about Vermont state troopers) came out.
"I said to him, 'What’s up with the state police thing? You should do a show about firemen,'" Bill told Fox61 in 2019. "I got a whole career full of stories, and everybody knows that firemen are much funnier than police officers. We tell better stories than police officers."
Kevin even hired Bill to be a technical advisor on the series. "There are a couple of things that you watch on TV and you just cringe. My job is to make sure no one cringes when they watch this," Bill explained.
Tacoma FD is available to stream on HBO Max.
