10 Days of Canadian Humour – Day 8

Day 8 brings me to Mike Myers. A Toronto boy who made it big in U.S. TV and movies.

After graduating from high school, Myers was accepted into the Second City Canadian touring company and later joined the Toronto troupe of Second City. From 1989 to 1995, he had a successful run on Saturday Night Live, with popular characters like Wayne Campbell, Dieter, Linda Richman and Simon. Rolling Stone ranked Myers 4th among all performers who appeared on SNL.
