Colin Mochrie on SCTV and telling our own (funny) stories
Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Andrea Martin, Martin Short, the late John Candy. The fact that these comedians all come from Canada is something to be proud of. That they all came up from the same Canadian TV show before launching international careers is a reminder of the importance of telling our own stories and supporting the broadcasters who reflect ourselves back to us onscreen and online. To kick off a new season of interviews on The Chesterfield, we’ve got improv legend, actor and award-winning comedy writer Colin Mochrie speaking with our host iskwē on the genius and legacy of SCTV. The sketch comedy show from the 70s and 80s with the A-list cast was as distinctly Canadian as you can get, and is the perfect place to start a new series of conversations about Canadian culture.
