Jeremy Piven is best known for his scene-stealing performances as Ari Gold during his eight season run on the hit HBO series Entourage.

Seemingly always in tip-top shape, Piven showed off his toned physique in black shorts and a black t-shirt.
He also donned grey sneakers, dark sunglasses and stayed hydrated by carrying a water bottle.
With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting new record highs of new cases on a near daily basis, Piven made sure to wear a protective mask over his mouth and nose while out and about.

The actor and comedian headlined Thursday’s fundraiser for the Prostate Cancer Foundation at Tiato in Santa Monica, which was a safety-first outdoor show with socially distanced seating.
He showed off his animated brand of comedy, to the delight of the crowd, while looking casual-cool in black jeans, a black tee and a brown, suede zipper jacket.

Driven: Piven has been focusing much of his attention in recent years on stand-up comedy
After reaping the rewards of success in both television and films, the high-energy character actor is now driven to succeed in the world of stand-up.
‘I realized very quickly if you’re going to do stand-up the best you possibly can, you have to commit as much time as you can,’ Piven confessed during an interview with the Orlando Sentinel before a show in 2018.
He went on to reveal how he had done 250 shows in the previous year, and how that had put him in a position to where he felt like he had ‘a really nice hour set.’
Piven surmized: ‘If you take a look at my history as a performer, all roads lead to stand-up.’
