My brother in-law Dan Noojin and I used to hang out a good bit in the early eighties. If we were in front of the television on a weekend night, it was for Night Flight and Second City Television Network. SCTV was a little bit of Saturday Night Live and Monty Python's Flying Circus rolled into one. SCTV introduced us to the talent of John Candy, Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis, Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Joe Flaherty, Andrea Martin and Martin Short. I enjoyed much of the early SNL days, but low budgeted SCTV blew the doors of SNL during the early eighties.It was SCTV that inspired me to start doing my own Floyd the Barber impersonation. I make a lot of humorous references to the show that no one these days seem to get.
