Greg Malone, St. John's, Newfoundland, CANADA

One of my long time favourite actors, Greg Malone
Greg Malone was born in St. John's and educated at St. George's School, St. Bonaventure's College, Gonzaga High School and Memorial University, where he graduated with a BA in English. Mr. Malone is best known for the CODCO television series and his impersonations of political icons such as Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, the Queen and Barbara Frum.
Besides the 63 CODCO shows, Mr. Malone wrote and performed in 43 Wonderful Grand Bandshows for the CBC, many specials, radio programs, countless stage shows and international theatre tours. Most recently, he directed the popular and award-winning docudrama The Untold Story of the Suffragists of Newfoundland, in which he also appeared as Sir Richard Squires. His wildly funny one-man special for the Comedy Channel, Pocket Queen, picked up a Gold Award for comedy at the 1999 Houston International Film and Television Festival.

Delighted to have this Codco photo from Greg, the troupe was one of my inspirations from Newfoundland. Some of the best laughter I've ever known.
