Canada’s 150th birthday is just one week away. I’m marking the milestone by featuring great Canadian comic legends. Today is Dan Aykroyd. He was an original member of Saturday Night Live and went on to have a successful movie career. Aykroyd was born in Ottawa on Canada Day. In 1973, joined the Second City comedy troupe in Toronto before moving to SNL.
Rolling Stone rated all 145 performers who were part of SNL and Dan Aykroyd was ranked fifth.
