friend and the two teamed up. Shortly after doing Expo '86, Colin moved to Toronto.
There, he auditioned for The Second City, a famous North American comedy theater, where Stiles was working at the time. Mochrie worked at Second City for three years.
Mochrie's first appearance on "Whose Line is it Anyway," the British version, was in 1991. His role on the American "Whose Line" got off to a rocky start when ABC wanted to drop Mochrie because they thought the comedian looked too old and not hip enough. Thankfully those involved in the show held their ground, and ABC was smart enough to see that talent and creativity were more important than 'hip' and the fans agreed, making Mochrie a popular mainstay on the American "Whose Line" stage.
