Rick Moranis is a Canadian actor.


Born in Toronto, Ontario, Moranis was initially a DJ before joining the cast of SCTV and becoming known for the characters "Bob and Doug" who he created with Dave Thomas. This ultimately led to a successful film career in comedies such as Spaceballs and Ghostbusters.

After appearing in the successful Honey, I Shrunk the Kids franchise, Moranis began to leave acting, retiring to look after his children following the death of his wife. Despite this, he continued to make occasional voice appearances in productions such as Brother Bear.


Moranis has a number of musical credits to his name, firstly and most notably the film Little Shop of Horrors in which he played Seymour, and later in Parenthood, where he gave an acapella rendition of "Close to You". He also appeared as himself in an episode of Muppets Tonight.

Moranis also released a number of comedy albums from 1989 to 2013, including My Mother's Brisket and Other Love Songs, an ode to all things Jewish.
