Colin Mochrie is an alumnus of Toronto’s famous Second City comedy troupe and is widely considered to be one of the leading improvisers in the world. After nine years as a regular on the British improvisation series ”Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” he became a regular on the American version hosted by Drew Carey, which ran six years (the entire cast was recently reunited in Vegas for Drew Carey’s Improv-aganza, a new series aired on GSN).
Colin was a cast member of CBC’s ”This Hour Has 22 Minutes” 2001- 2003 and with his wife, Debra McGrath, he produced, wrote and starred in the CBC show “Getting Along Famously.” Remarkably for the past seven years, Colin has toured worldwide, to great success, with “Whose Line” castmate Brad Sherwood, performing a live improv show. Along with his many appearances in features and tv productions in both Canada and the US, the second season of “Almost Heroes,” in which Colin plays a supporting role will begin soon.
He will also be in London in October to begin production on a new series for ABC (produced by the makers of Whose Line and starring Colin alongside many of his former Whose Line cast members) called “Trust Us With Your Life.” Fred Willard is the host.
Aside from comedy, Colin continues to be in demand in Canada and the US for voiceover work as well as for theatre and his writing.
