Ready for a quick-witted and guileless comedian who can roll with the punches? Then look no further than the legend of improv and star of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Colin Mochrie. This esteemed and hilarious performer is one of Canada’s most iconic comics, and he’s ready to entertain the crowds of your upcoming corporate function, social event, or charity fundraiser.
There won’t be a guest in the house who won’t recognize Colin for his time performing on the British and American versions of the improvisational television show, Whose Line Is It Anyways? The show, lauded for its irreverence and hilarity, consists of a panel of 4 comedians who engage in theatre sports that rely heavily on audience participation. He first appeared on the show in 1988, when it was aired on the BBC with host Clive Anderson. During his 8 years on the show, Colin starred with other legendary comics like Eddie Izzard, Stephen Fry, Greg Proops, and Ryan Stiles.
It was with Ryan Stiles that he starred in the American adaptation of the show in 1998 on ABC. With Wayne Brady and host Drew Carey, Colin impressed and amused millions of ABC viewers with his on-screen antics. Though it was cancelled in 2007, it returned to American television in 2003 with host Aisha Tyler. Once again, Colin is one of the long running stars of this revival.
As a comedian, however, Colin has done much more than Whose Line Is It Anyways? His quick-wit and dry persona has made him a recurring face on the screen and stage for nearly 30 years. On stage, he’s performed with The National Touring Company, starring in The Brady Bunch and She Stoops to Conquer. Most recently, he performed with Peter Donaldson in the Canadian Stage Company and with Brad Sherwood in their Two Man Group: The Colin and Brad Show.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Monty Python, Bob Hope, and the Marx Brothers, Colin’s personal brand of humour mixes razor sharp with goofy physical comedy. His quick wit is at odds with his approachable, unassuming looks (his receding hairline is a common joke amongst his Whose Line Is It Anyways? co-stars) keeps audience guessing at every turn. Taken for a surprising and hilarious ride through an evening of improv comedy, your guests will delight in Colin’s on-stage antics.
With such an esteemed background in improvisational humour, Colin is one of Canada’s most versatile performers, whose flexibility and cleverness as a comic makes any situation a hilarious one. Whatever your audience throws at him, Colin can take it. His impeccable timing and quick wit will have crying laughing in no time at all.
