Mike Myers is expected to have a net worth of $200 million in September 2022.
Michael John Myers is a Scarborough-born actor, comedian, writer, and producer who works in the film industry.
The time period from 1989 to 1995 during which Myers was a cast member of Saturday Night Live is the period for which he is best remembered. It was with the film Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon that he first took the helm as a director (2013).
On May 25, 1963, Michael Joh Myers entered this world in Scarborough, Ontario. Eric Myers’s father worked in insurance, and his mother, Alice “Bunny” E. Myers (née Hind), was a supervisor in an office and a veteran of the Royal Air Force.
They were from Liverpool, England, but had moved to Canada. Paul and Peter are Myers’ older brothers. He attended both Sir John A.
Macdonald Collegiate Institute and Stephen Leacock Collegiate Institute throughout his upbringing in Toronto’s suburbs, from which he graduated in 1982.
Early in life, Myers made commercial appearances (at the tender age of two!). At age 10, he co-starred with Gilda Radner in a British Columbia Hydro commercial. With his high school diploma in hand, he signed on with the Canadian touring company The Second City.
Since then, he’s relocated to the UK, where he helped establish the improv troupe The Comedy Store Players. Mike also appeared on the British children’s program Wide Awake Club around the same period, alongside comic Neil Mullarkey.
In 1986 he relocated back to Toronto and began performing with the ensemble of The Second City Toronto’s flagship stage production.
It was in Chicago, at the Improv Olympic, where he studied, performed, and eventually taught, that he decided to make the move in 1988.
Comedic Variety Show Airing on Saturday Night
Myers started working for NBC’s Saturday Night Live in 1989. Mike’s storied SNL character work includes the likes of Linda Richman, Dieter, Wayne Campbell, and dozens more.
Myers and fellow SNL cast member Dana Carvey got their own movie deal because of the Wayne character they created. The film was titled Wayne’s World (1992).
Both critics and audiences loved “Wayne’s World,” and the film made $183 million throughout the world. After “Wayne’s World 2” (1993) and “So I married an Axe Murderer” (1993) and three more years on “Saturday Night Live,” Myers took a break from acting.
He’s got some serious Austin Powers
The film “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery,” released in 1997, marked Myers’ return to the spotlight. Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) were its sequels (2002).
Both of the films’ sequels did extremely well at the box office, raking in $312 million and $296.6 million. Myers played not just Austin Powers, but also Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard, and Goldmember in the Austin Powers film series.
Myers started dating actress and comic writer Robin Ruzan in the late 1980s, after meeting her at a Chicago Blackhawks ice hockey game.
They were together for several years. They tied the knot in May of 1993 but separated in December of the same year. Back in 2006, he started dating Kelly Tisdale, and they’ve been together since. They got married in New York in late 2010, and now they’re raising three kids together.
