COLIN MOCHRIE BIOGRAPHY
Colin Mochrie returns for yet another season on the CW to the hysterical improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” along with host Aisha Tyler and fellow stars Wayne Brady and Ryan Stiles, who put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games.
- 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 for six years on ABC and three years on ABC Family. In 2011, the entire cast was reunited in Vegas for “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza.”
Mochrie appears regularly in film and television and was notably a cast member of CBC’s classic news spoof “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” for two seasons. With his wife, Debra McGrath, he produced, wrote and starred in the CBC show “Getting Along Famously.”
- A native of Scotland but life-long resident of Canada, Mochrie has remarkably toured worldwide for over a decade, with “Whose Line” castmate Brad Sherwood, performing a live improv show. Their first show “An Evening with Colin and Brad,” has the distinction of being one of the longest running comedy tours in history. Their current two-man improv show is Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood: The Scared Scriptless Tour.
- In the past, Colin’s writing for television, stage and magazines has garnered numerous awards. His first book of fiction, Not Quite the Classics, in which he uses the first and last lines of familiar classics as a launching and landing point and re-imagines everything in between, was released by Viking, a publishing arm of Penguin Canada, in October 2013. The ebook version is currently available in the US at www.diversionbooks.com or www.amazon.com.
And in 2018, Colin and comedienne Andrea Martin were the inaugural recipients of Canada’s John Candy Award for Excellence in Comedy. Follow Colin on Instagram @ColinMochrie7591
HYPROV: Improv under Hypnosis!
Hypnosis and Improv -- two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, skeptics and everyone in between for decades worldwide – come together as two masters of their crafts unite for a totally unique comedy experience, Improv Under Hypnosis.
From the minds of improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie and Master Hypnotist Asad Mecci comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, side-splitting show. Hypnosis and improvisation – two art forms that have captured minds and imaginations for decades worldwide – are brought together by two masters of their crafts, creating a totally unique theatrical experience, HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis.
Twenty random volunteers from the audience will be hypnotized, (the process of which is a show in its own right), their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own, the four or five best are left on stage when one of the world’s leading improvisers enters!
Colin Mochrie, star of “Whose Line is it, Anyway?,” will initiate and manipulate those under hypnosis and turn the show into an improv extravaganza full of music, horse races and lots of laughter. In the hands of two masters, and crafted from the volunteers’ uninhibited subconscious, it’s an entirely original and completely unforgettable show every time. Who knows where the unconscious mind might take us?
