10 Days of Canadian Humour – Day 10

On the final day of featuring the great Canadian comics I present John Candy. Like Jim Carrey, he was born in Newmarket just north of Toronto.

Candy didn’t actually get his start doing improv or stand up comedy. He started off acting in a string of low budget films in the early 1970s. Then 1976 he became  a member of the Second City troupe in Toronto before moving to the popular sketch comedy TV show Second City Television (SCTV). This lead to a successful movie career that ended with his death in 1994 at the age of 43.
