@avi Kevin Hart isn't tall so that isn't true.

I always have a hard time seeing this guy as high as 5'10, but he is.

He can look taller next to Ryan Stiles who says he is 6'6 but I think he is a strong 6'5 so drew looks close to 5'11 because we have it drilled in our head that he is 6'6 when he may be 6'5 . Drew Carey at 5'10 is within a 1/4 of what he is.
In order to go on stage and make funnies you have to be tall in order to be in a good enough mood to do this that's why many actors and comedians are taller.

He looks short on 'drew carey' and 'who's line' because the rest of the cast is so tall.

He referred to himself 5'10" on his show. Also in one episode Lewis (Ryan Stiles) took a physical exam for Drew, and the doctor who saw Drew later on noted that it obviously wasn't Drew who took the physical because they measured him at 6'5". Anyways, he could appear short on the show but it's only because it was a tall cast, Drew is definitely a solid 5'10".

Yeah Ryan is 6'6", Diedrich Bader is a good 6'2" and even Christa Miller is around 5'10". Very tall cast.

Wow, I'm surprised. He looks several inches below average on Whose Line and Improv-A-Ganza but I'm only comparing to the other guys.

Guys Ryan Styles has AT LEAST 4 inches on Colin on whose line. No way hes under 6'6". Hes huge, he dwarfes the rest of the cast on whose line and there all 5'10" or above.

If Drew is 5'10", Wayne Brady is 5'11" (he looks it) and Colin is no more than 6'. There's always some part of the show where they're aligned

There was a reference to Carey's height on an episode of the show as 5'10. And also a reference to Ryan Stiles, (Lewis) height as 6'5".

Drew Carey could actually be fairly tall, but on "Whose Line is it Anyways?" (great show by the way) he always looks fairly short because bone-thin people look taller and overweight people look shorter. I guessed he was around the 5'8" range before I actually compared him to some of the other cast members.

I've watched the show since in started in 1995.Still enjoy the re-reuns.But I can't help but notice how Drews height seems to change every once in awhile.An
example is how close in height Carey and Christa Miller(5'8)look in height.
There have been times where they look exactly the same height.Then there is John Carrol Lynch who's 6'4,I noticed that Drew looks a bit more than 6 inches shorter than lynch.I definately think carey is no shorter than 5'8-5'10.But I'm a bit skeptical of certain heights considering for the longest time people said Kevin James was 5'10

It's weird, I was surprised to find out that he is actually 5'10". I always thought he was another Kevin James. A short, dumpy guy but y'know Drew's actually isn't short. Some photos from the set of the Drew Carey Show alongside one of the cast members who is 6'5" actually do prove that he is indeed 5 foot 10. One of the few male celebrities who is taller than he seems ...
