He began his career as a child actor in 1950s movies (The Robe) and television (The Jack Benny Program). Shearer also played the precursor to the Eddie Haskell character in the pilot episode of the TV series Leave It to Beaver. Shearer was later a member of Los Angeles radio comedy group The Credibility Gap, 1968–1974, and a writer for such television shows as Fernwood 2-Night and Laverne and Shirley. In August 1979, Shearer was hired as a writer and cast member on Saturday Night Live, an unofficial replacement for John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, who were both leaving the show. According to the book Saturday Night: A Backstage History of Saturday Night Live, Shearer did not get along well with the other writers and castmembers, who regarded him as "prickly." His first tenure on the show ended when Lorne Michaels left SNL, taking the entire cast with him. Shearer returned to Saturday Night Live in the 1984–1985 season, leaving for good in January 1985 over "creative differences."
