In early 1990s ads, Kabler was known as the fedora-wearing "Zima guy". Aside from the fedora, his gimmick involved replacing "S" sounds with "Z" sounds, reinforcing the slogan "Zomething different."

On television, Kabler appeared as a member of the reperatory company on CBS' The Carol Burnett Show in 1991. The next season, he landed the lead role of Bobby Soul in the short-lived NBC sitcom Rhythm & Blues.[1][2]

As a celebrity impersonator, Kabler is known for his impression of Robin Williams and Jon Lovitz.
