    For me, John Candy is the peak of this mountain! Phil Hartman was ridiculously talented, his life was cut way too short. I guess you gotta put Jim Carrey on there too. And of course Dan Aykroyd

    One of my absolute fave scenes in any movie ever was seeing these 2 Canadians go at it

    Rich Little is literally the original Canadian Comedian and isn't even on TS's list?

    Also no Dave Thomas - LMAO.

    shit forgot about Leslie Nielson, he's gotta be there.
    And Dave Foley is awesome too, but maybe not worthy of Mt Rushmore, but @therealdope you jogged my memory when you mentioned Dave Thomas who is also phenomenal. Just makes us realize the talent that came out of Canada

    Well. It’s hard. One of the reasons I made the thread is because I wanted to see what people say and decide for myself after reading people’s arguments.

    However I think at the moment I go with the four “biggest names” as I see them

    John Candy
    Mike Myers
    Jim Carrey
    Seth Rogan

    All were the top billed stars in multiple hit movies. Myers, especially, created two major franchise characters when he did Wayne’s World and Austin Powers and changed the way people talked.
    His Wayne’s World catchphrases became internationally popular and he even brought Bohemian Rhapsody back to #1 on North American music charts.

    I don’t think I need to mention all the “yeah baby” and “oh behave” kind of stuff that came out of Austin Powers...it was everywhere.
