Mike Myers Talks about His Training at Second City

Alum Mike Myers appeared today on Live with Regis and Kelly to promote the upcoming movie Shrek, Forever After. During the interview, Myers was asked to name the most influential teacher in his life. Myers responded with two; one was a public school teacher he had during his years in the Toronto school system and the other was our own Del Close, who taught him at The Second City. Myers goes on to say that his time at The Second City proved to be some of the most important years of his life of his life. Del taught him that a true artist "makes things." "So when you ask me what I do," said Myers, "I say I make things."
