Jason and Cindy interview Master of Ceremonies Chris Mei.

Chris Mei began his public speaking life in 1998 when he was hired to act as the MC at the bar where he worked.

That began a nearly 20-year odyssey of stage work, broadcasting and comedy. Chris worked for 4 years on board cruise ships hosting literally thousands of events.

Chris also attended the Second City Comedy Improv School in Toronto, then formed a comedy troupe that toured for five years.

He has spent the last decade on national TV as one of Canada’s most loved weather broadcasters and has continued his work as a Master of Ceremonies, sharing the stage with comedians like Colin Mochrie, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas and more,

He is also known world-wide for playing the Penguin in the Adam Sandler comedy Billy Madison.

Chris talks to Cindy and Jason about what makes a good Master of Ceremonies and how he was influenced by singers such as David Bowie and Bono.

Chris reminisces about Adam Sandler and Chris Farley and tells a hilarious never-been-told story from the set of the film.
