Colin Andrew Mochrie was born on November 30th, 1957 in
Kilmarnock, Scotland. As the son of an airline maintenance executive, his family
tended to move around quite frequently. They first moved to Montreal in 1964,
then to Vancouver in 1969. Booking Colin Mochrie www.grabow.biz .He considered
himself a loner during his childhood days due to his shyness, a trait that he
claims he still evidently has, and the frequent moving. At some point, as a
child, he had dreamed of becoming a marine biologist or a chef. However, at 16,
he was dared by a friend to join a High School play where he had the part of an
undertaker. It was then when he got his first laugh (by splitting his pants) and
afterwards, he "craved for nothing but more laughter." He then turned to
Theatersports, where he attended an acting school for four years.
Introduced by a friend, he teamed up Ryan Stiles to do improv, who at the time
was doing stand up comedy. Shortly after doing Expo '86, Colin moved to Toronto.
There, he auditioned for The Second City (a famous North American comedy
theater), where Ryan Stiles was working at the time. He was hired by Debra
McGrath. In 1989, he and Deb got married. They later had a son, Luke, who was
born sometime during 1991. Colin worked in The Second City for three years and
the couple then moved to Los Angeles, where Deb worked on a TV series with
Second City colleague, Linda Kash. They hated it there, and after spending their
last few weeks selling off their CDs to buy diapers for their son, they moved
back to Toronto.
Colin has acted in various small roles in movies and series. His first movie was
"the 3D Space Epic, 'Space Hunter: Adventures of the Forbidden Zone', [where]
captures Molly Ringwald and utters the immortal line: 'You can ask the
Chemist.'" He has also earned other small roles in movies such "The Real Blonde"
starring Kathleen Turner and Matthew Modine. He says that he is "planning to do
big movies. Unfortunately, no one is planning to hire [him] for one." His first
TV series was "Downtown Saturday Night", a sketchcomedy-talk show shot in
Vancouver. However, he is best known for being a regular on the TV show "Whose
Line is it Anyway?" which is often known as WLiiA?. He had first auditioned for
WLiiA? while in Toronto but hadnšt made it. He auditioned again in L.A. a few
years later and got the part, but he says he owes it all to Ryan [Stiles] who
"probably forced them to" hire him. In April 2000, he won a Canadian Comedy
Award for the best male improviser. One year later, he grabbed another Canadian
Comedy Award for Best Male Performance in Television Series (in WLiiA?).
Recently, Colin has been extremely busy as a performer. As well as shooting
WLiiA? during summers, he performs regularly on stage, is in several
commercials, has done a few movies, and is often on several TV series. He is
often seen on "Improv Heaven and Hell"; he guest stars on "The Drew Carey Show"
as Eugene; he starred in "Supertown Challenge" (a show spoof making fun of small
towns) as the host, Dick Powell; and has done voiceover work as a sexually
ambiguous alligator and along with his wife, a hyena. Along with that, he is
also in the process of filming of the American version of WLiiA? in L.A.,
episodes of Blackfly in Halifax, hosting "Offbeat World" (a travel series),
doing voiceover work for "Seven Little Monsters", and has appeared in several
Serving meeting planners since 1983
