The well-known comedian and actor Dana Carvey is also a delighted father of a boy named Dex Carvey. Dex stays out of the spotlight most of the time, but his relationship with the comic genius has generated interest.
Dex is the son of Dana and his wife, Paula Zwagerman, and was raised in the entertainment industry. Undoubtedly, Dana Carvey, who gained notoriety for his legendary roles on “Saturday Night Live” and “Wayne’s World,” has had an impact on Dex’s life.
While information regarding Dex Carvey’s pursuits is still largely confidential, his family connections offer a fascinating perspective on the illustrious Carvey lineage.
Who is Dana Carvey Son Dex?
According to an L.A. County Medical Examiner’s Office report, Dana Carvey’s son, Dex Carvey, died from a fatal mix of cocaine, ketamine, and fentanyl. On November 15, 2023, the 32-year-old comedian and actor passed away.
When Dex’s death at the age of 32 was announced in November, Carvey and his wife, Paula Zwagerman, had previously disclosed that the cause of death was an unintentional drug overdose.
“Last night, we suffered a tragedy. Our beloved son, Dex, died of an accidental drug overdose. He was 32 years old,” the “Saturday Night Live” alum wrote on his social media accounts at the time.

The statement continued, “Dex packed a lot into those 32 years. He was extremely talented at so many things–music, art, filmmaking, comedy–and pursued all of them passionately.”
“It’s not an exaggeration to say that Dex loved life. And when you were with him, you loved life too. He made everything fun. But most of all, he loved his family, his friends, and his girlfriend, Kaylee. Dex was a beautiful person. His handmade birthday cards are a treasure. We will miss him forever.”
With the words “To anyone struggling with addiction or who loves someone struggling with addiction, you are in our hearts and prayers,” the message came to a close with the names Carvey and Paula.
An autopsy was finished the day after Dex passed away at home on November 15, according to a report from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s office that Fox News Digital was able to get at the time.

Of the two boys that Carvey and Zwagerman had, Dex was the oldest. Thomas, 30, is also shared by the couple, who got married in 1983. For the first time after Dex’s passing, the 68-year-old comic returned to his and David Spade’s “Fly on the Wall” podcast last week, where he opened up about their family’s grief.
Carvey described the family’s response to the outpouring of love as “incredible” and “really sweet.” He observed that while he and his family grieved, there wasn’t much that anyone could do to support them.
Following Dex’s passing in November, Carvey sent a thank-you note to his followers and declared he would be taking a hiatus from acting. Former “Wayne’s World” actor announced that he would be “taking a break from work and social media, trying to figure out what life looks like now that we are a family of 3.” Fox News Digital has contacted a representative for Dana Carvey for comment.
