About Rick Moranis (1954 – )
Rick Moranis was born Frederick Alan Moranis on April 18th, 1953, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Rick gained notoriety when he teamed up with fellow Canadian, Dave Thomas on Canada's version of SCTV, portraying a pair of dumb, Canadian brothers, Bob and Doug McKenzie, who epitomize Canadian characteristics in a satirical fashion. These portrayals of these wildly popular characters were inspired by the Canadian broadcasting rules that insisted that "identifiable Canadian content" be present in all projects made in Canada.

When the McKenzie brothers clips were shown on American version of SCTV, Bob and Rick became popular in America as well.

Moranis and Thomas portrayed the Mckenzie brothers in a feature length film, The Adventures Of Bob And Doug Mckenzie: Strange Brew, a script that Rick Moranis wrote.

This led to parts in mega-hit movies, such as Ghost Busters, Parenthood and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.

The Canadians had a sense of humor, and Moranis and Thomas were honored as offering positive contributions to Canadian culture, by being inducted into The Order of Canada.

In 1991, the love of his life, Anne Moranis, died of liver cancer, leaving Rick alone to raise their two children.  As it was very hard to be in the acting business, and raise two children at the same time, Rick quit Hollywood, and retired from acting in 1997. He turned to writing, an area that he excels in as well. In 2009, he created the Canadian adult-humored animated series, Bob And Doug.

Rick now occasionally does voice-overs, in such animated films as The Brother Bear films, and Miss Spider's Sunnypatch Kids. He turned to writing, an area that he excels in as well.

In 2005, he released an album, a comedy/country project, entitled The Agoraphobic Cowboy.
