Second City here in Toronto was the starting point of many super star comedians- Eugene Levy, Martin Short, John Candy, Mike Myers, Katherine O’Hara, and many more. Early SCTV was simply amazing stuff because the writing had a universal appeal that crossed time. Some of the funniest stuff is on SCTV, but I fear not many present “kids” know it even exists. I remember watching a early episode of SCTV were Dave Thomas does a hillarious imitation of Captian Kangaroo’s Bob Keeshan- and accidentally kills a puppeteer (the late John Candy).
