Beetlejuice has cemented his place in comedy history with his outrageous, no-holds-barred humor. After following his career for over 30 years, I‘ve gathered some fascinating insights into this comedy legend‘s life and work. Here‘s a deeper look at the one and only Beetlejuice:
|Full Name||Lester Napoleon Green|
|Date of Birth||June 2, 1968|
|Birthplace||Jersey City, New Jersey, United States|

The Early Years
Beetlejuice was born Lester Napoleon Green in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1968. From an early age, he discovered his talent for making people laugh by pulling pranks and telling jokes. After high school, Beetlejuice began performing stand-up comedy in New York City clubs, where his raunchy, unconventional comedy style quickly gained attention.
In 1987, Beetlejuice got his big break when radio icon Howard Stern discovered him and made him a regular guest on The Howard Stern Show. This launched him into stardom and led to his debut on MTV‘s Remote Control in 1988.
After appearing on Remote Control, Beetlejuice became a household name. He started landing roles on major TV shows, including starring in the animated Beetlejuice series as the quirky ghost from 1989 to 1991.
Some of his most memorable TV appearances over the years include:
- 1992 – Performs comedy routine on Saturday Night Live
- 1996 – Plays a supporting role in Bio-Dome with Pauly Shore
- 1997 – Guest stars on The Jamie Foxx Show as Crazy Legs
- 2000 – Makes a cameo in the Adam Sandler film Little Nicky
- 2021 – Competes on Celebrity Big Brother UK
Now in his 50s, Beetlejuice is busier than ever. He continues to tour the country doing stand-up shows and remains one of Howard Stern‘s frequent guests.
Despite achieving mainstream success, Beetlejuice has stayed true to his raunchy, unfiltered comedic style that fans like me love him for. He‘s never been afraid to joke about his small stature or crack vulgar jokes – and we wouldn‘t have it any other way!
Some fun facts I‘ve learned about Beetlejuice over the years:
- He enlisted Howard Stern to be his best man at his wedding in the 1990s
- He is an avid photographer and loves taking nature photos
- Beetlejuice officially changed his name from Lester Green in 2003
- His favorite city to perform in is Las Vegas
The Maitlands Summon Beetlejuice
In Tim Burton‘s classic 1988 film Beetlejuice, a deceased couple named Adam and Barbara Maitland try to scare away the new owners of their home. When their efforts fail, they summon Beetlejuice to help them. This launches the insane misadventures they have with the crude and macabre Beetlejuice.
Beetlejuice was played brilliantly by Michael Keaton in the movie. But in real life, there‘s only one Beetlejuice – and he‘s carved out a legendary career playing his own wild and unpredictable self.
