Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Talented actor who is responsible for two of pop culture's more memorable icons-Lenny from TV's "Laverne and Shirley" and rhythm guitarist David St. Hubbins of the mock rock group Spinal Tap, introduced in Rob Reiner's This Is Spinal Tap (1984). McKean began his career as a member of the comedy group Credibility Gap with future Spinal Tap member Harry Shearer and David L. Lander. The three became writers on "Laverne and Shirley," and McKean and Lander soon gained fame onscreen as the strange greaser duo Lenny and Squiggy. McKean appeared with Lander in Used Cars (1980), then starredplaying it straight-in the soap opera spoof Young Doctors in Love (1982, directed by "Laverne" producer Garry Marshall). Since the cult success of Spinal Tap McKean has appeared in D.A.R.Y.L., Clue (both 1985), Light of Day, Planes, Trains & Automobiles (both 1987), Short Circuit 2 (1988), Earth Girls Are Easy (1989), Flashback (1990), Memoirs of an Invisible Man, Man Trouble (both 1992), Coneheads (1993), Airheads Radioland Murders (both 1994), and The Brady Bunch Movie (1995). He also cowrote and acted in the Hollywood satire The Big Picture (1989, directed by fellow Tap member Christopher Guest). He starred in Billy Crystal's excellent made-for-cable series "Sessions" (1992) and appears on the TV comedy "Dream On." In 1994, he joined the cast of TV's "Saturday Night Live."
