Myers developed a knack for character comedy at a young age. His wit earned him raves in the comedy scene and also caught the attention of fellow canuck Lorne Michaels, producer of the hit sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live. Myers had been a tremendous fan of the show since its debut and had always dreamed of landing a spot. In 1987 his dream was answered and he quickly turned his comedic talents into success sketches. In 1992 Myers, along with Dana Carvey, parlayed their television success into a feature film based on Wayne's World. Teenagers flocked to theaters to see the two beloved characters on the big screen. Mike soon left the show to concentrate on a film career, like so many SNL members before him.
