Profile Bio Text
Born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, he moved with his family to Canada in 1964. Mochrie graduated as a Valedictorian from Killarney Secondary School in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in 1975. He is an alumnus of Toronto`s famous Second City comedy troupe, where he co-wrote and starred in three productions as well as directed three seasons of their national touring company. After nine years as a regular on the British Channel 4 hit improvisation series Whose Line Is It Anyway?, he appeared in every episode of the American version hosted by Drew Carey on ABC. He was frequently mocked by his co-stars on the show for being Canadian and for his receding hairline. At the same time, he starred in the Canadian comedy series Blackfly and Supertown Challenge. More recently he appeared in This Hour Has 22 Minutes on CBC TV from 2001 through 2003, on The WB Television Network series Drew Carey`s Green Screen Show in 2004, and starred in Getting Along Famously in 2006.
Mochrie was a guest star of The Drew Carey Show for three episodes: "She`s Gotta Have It" (1999), "Drew Live" (1999), and "Drew Live II" (2000). Among his best known impressions are Peter Graves, Colonel Klink and CBC news anchor Peter Mansbridge. He is also known for his `impression` of Craig T. Nelson. However, this is a joke, as he uses his own voice while calling himself `Craig T. Nelson`. Mochrie also played a minor role in the movie The Tuxedo (2002). He starred as the curator of a museum, which Jackie Chan`s character frequently visited to see a female employee. At the end of the movie, Mochrie`s character was tazed.
In February 2007, he made a guest appearance as a priest in the seventh episode of Little Mosque on the Prairie, a Canadian television comedy series. On March 28, 2007, Colin and fellow Whose Line is it Anyway? actor Brad Sherwood hosted part of the Press Correspondents` Dinner with the President. In that event, Brad and Colin featured Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove rapping. Rove`s only line was, "MC Rove". The image of Mochrie`s face is used extensively in Animutation, a style of Flash animation. Neil Cicierega, the father of Animutation, would place Colin in almost every Animutation he made, making the inclusion of him in Animutation somewhat of a running gag. Mochrie is aware of his status among Animutation artists and fans, having been quoted, "It`s pretty cool, but you`ve got to admit, it`s pretty weird." According to the Internet Movie Database, Mochrie has been nominated for 9 separate awards, and has won 5 of them.
