Colin was very shy when he was younger, and while attending Kilarney Secondary School he often proclaimed himself a loner. He wanted to become a marine biologist, but then things changed after he became part of a play entitled “The Death and Life of Sneaky Fitch”. He made the crowd laugh, and realized that he wanted to pursue a career in comedy. He matriculated from high school as a valedictorian, and then attended Studio 58 where he found out about improvisational comedy.
After graduating, he became a part of the Vancouver Theatre Sports League, and while working with the group he participated in various plays; eventually he would meet Ryan Stiles and the two would start performing together. After “Expo ‘86” Colin left TheatreSports League and moved to Toronto where he became part of The Second City, and worked there for three years, becoming a writer, actor and director for the company – he was included in many skits such as a five-minute version of James Bond. His net worth was now established.
After leaving Second City, he took a break from comedy to spend time with his family. He then auditioned for the new British Improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” but was not successful. The next year he moved to Los Angeles to audition there, but was asked to go to London. He appeared in one episode but was released after that. He then auditioned once more, and became a regular cast member until the show ended 1998 after seven years. After the end of the British run, he joined the American version of the show hosted by Drew Carey. He invited Ryan Stiles to be part of the show and they appeared in the August 1998 debut, becoming regulars in the program until 2006. The show included segments such as “Scenes from a Hat” in which the cast members would act out various scenes suggested by audience members. There were also musical segments which Colin felt was his weakness. His net worth was rising steadily.
Colin also started to appear in various commercials for Canada, with one commercial showcasing him as the “Snack Fairy” complete with a ballet tutu. He also started to appear in other TV shows such as “The Brady Bunch” and “Supertown Challenge”.
In a busy professional life, Colin then became known for his parts in “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” and “Blackfly”. He made guest appearances on “The Drew Carey Show” and “The Red Green Show”, and also had a show on Animal Planet entitled “Wild Survival Guide” while continuing to make various commercials. He also made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” as the Overly Sensitive Man, a character popularised by “Whose Line”.
He continued his career with appearances on television spots and commercials. Soon he would also try his hand at hosting the game show “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” He became part of “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza” and soon returned for the revival of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” during 2013. It is easy to see where Colin gets his wealth from.
For his personal life, Colin has been married to Debra McGrath since 1989 and they have a son. He also has his own website which is regularly updated with his projects.
