This comedian duo of Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood, are hilariously funny and will be bringing down the house at NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Sunday, June 25th, 2023. The Scottish-born Canadian actor, Collin Mochrie, is a writer, producer and an extremely accomplished improvisational and talented comedian. He is best known for his appearances on both the British and US versions of the TV show ‘ Whose Line is it anyway’, becoming a regular on the UK version, for a period of seven years. Collin is also an accomplished theatrical performer, appearing in dozens of television series and films. American actor, singer, comedian, a game show host and a writer, Bradley Sherwood, has appeared along-side Collin in both the British and American versions of ‘Whose Line Is It’.
While at secondary school, Mochrie was persuaded to try out for a role in a play. He was immediately hooked when he got his first audience laugh. This inspired him to pursue a career in entertainment, which was to develop into comedy. He spent four years attended the Studio 58 theater school, where he discovered the art of improvisational comedy. He was given a regular spot on the UK show, after auditioning three times and had been denied three times, to “Whose Line Is It”. In 1998 when the show ended, he had spent 7 years as a regular participant. Soon after, he joined the American version of the show, and worked with Bradley Sherwood. He appeared on every show until that closed in 2006.
Mochrie and his co-star Brad Sherwood have toured North America, intermittently, as a two-man improv stage show, since 2002, producing the critically acclaimed, live, two-man improv show: ‘Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood: Scared Scriptless!’
Collin Mochrie has played in some of the larger venues, like the Sydney Opera House and London's Royal Albert Hall, and has featured in comedy shows in the UK, American and Canada. Numerous awards have been awarded to Mochrie for his work, and he has been recognized with two Canadian Comedy Awards, a Gemini Award, and a Writers Guild of Canada award. In 2013, he was named Canadian Comedy Person of the Year at the Canadian Comedy Awards.
