#Fact
1 He transferred to Stephen Leacock Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, Ontario, from Sir John A. MacDonald C.I. for the Television Production course offered in grades 11 & 12. The school opened it's doors in 1970 with fully-equipped television and radio studios. It is still the most in-depth television course in Ontario offered at a high school.
2 In "Wayne's World" there is a very obscure reference to Mike Myer's early TV career. Garth shows us around Benjamin's apartment it's very like the British TV series "Through the keyhole". By probably not a coincidence, the format started as a sub-strand on original ITV breakfast franchise holders's TV-am's "Good Morning Britain". This is the same breakfast tv company that had the "Wide Awake Club" children's slot that Mike Myers had with Neil Mullarkey In turn, the same Neil Mullarkey that in turn later appears in Mike Myer's "Austin Powers".
3 His father died on the 21st birthday of his Austin Powers co-star Joe Son.
4 Pictured on one of a set of five nondemominated Canadian commemorative postage stamps honoring Great Canadian Comedians, issued 29 August 2014. In addition to the main portrait, he is shown in his roles as Wayne Campbell in Wayne's World (1992), and as Austin Powers and Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers series of films. Others honored in this set are Jim Carrey, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, and Oliver Guimond. Price of each stamp on day of issue was 85¢.
5 Myers first left "Saturday Night Live" before the start of the 1992-1993 season but later changed his mind and returned to SNL on the eighth show of that season which was hosted by Tom Arnold. Myers then remained on the show for three more years until he departed in January 1995.

Reitman told the Calgary Sun that the new film "won't be a retread of the Peter Sellers versions. We want something new and fresh.

#Quote
1 I like smart jokes, I like dumb jokes, and I like dumb jokes done smartly.
2 If I went by all the rejection I've had in my career, I should have given up a long time ago.
3 I love making stuff. There's a joy in having the first molecule of an idea, then testing it in front of audiences at secret shows that people only know about the day before. I videotape those, study them, enjoy being in the character and figuring out the movie.
4 [of Shrek the Third (2007), in which he again provided the character's voice] The first time you meet him, he's a self-loathing ogre who doesn't feel that he's worthy of love. In the second one, he doesn't feel worthy of marriage, and in this one he doesn't feel he's worthy of being the father of his country or being a father of a child. You know what I mean? It's a smart progression.
5 [when asked who some of his comic heroes were] Peter Sellers, Dan Aykroyd, the whole original SNL [Saturday Night Live (1975)] cast. Lorne Michaels is a hero of mine. I did a project on him in grade eight. He's a Canadian hero. He's a man of impeccable taste. And Gilda Radner was a big hero of mine.
6 Canada is the essence of not being. Not English, not American, it is the mathematic of not being. And a subtle flavour - we're more like celery as a flavour.
7 As a people, the English find male partial nudity and cross-dressing to be very funny. It's definitely a color on our palette, and I follow in that tradition.
8 I still believe that at any time the no-talent police will come and arrest me.
9 [June 1999] Austin Powers was born out of trying to celebrate my father's life. My father's favorites were mine -- Peter Sellers, Monty Python, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore . . . my dad was a guy who loved to be silly; he had a highly prized sense of humor. When I would bring friends home to play table hockey in the basement, if my dad didn't think they were funny, he wouldn't let them in the house. "They can't come around", he'd say. :They're not bloody funny!"
