When I was in Grade 2, my teacher showed a pic­ture of a cat­tail plant in class, which spurred a re­ac­tion in me where I jumped out of my chair, pointed and screamed, “Those look like hot dogs!” and did a lit­tle dance to thun­der­ous laugh­ter. So maybe then? I re­al­ized at a young age I’d do any­thing for a laugh. When I was nine, my friends and I were tobog­gan­ing. I found a frozen piece of dog crap and, with­out think­ing, picked it up and pre­tended to smoke it like a big cigar through my scarf. I know it’s gross. But it got a laugh! I grew up on Chicken Lady was a house­hold favourite of me and my si­b­lings. But I also saw re­runs of and fell in love with it. So I’ll say both? When I worked at Sec­ond City Main­stage Toronto, we had An­drea Martin, Sha­nia Twain, Lav­erne Cox, Sir Ian McKellen, Jack McBrayer and more.
