Michael John "Mike" Myers (born May 25, 1963) is a Canadian actor, comedian, screenwriter and film producer. He was a long-time cast member on the NBC sketch show Saturday Night Live in the late 1980s and the early 1990s and starred as the title characters in the films Wayne's World, Austin Powers, and Shrek.

Myers was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, the son of Alice E. (née Hind; b. 1926), an office supervisor who was formerly in the RAF, and Eric Myers (died in 1991), who worked in the insurance business and previously was a cook for the British Army. Both of his parents are from Liverpool. His older brother Paul is an indie rock singer-songwriter, broadcaster and author. He is of English, Scottish, and Irish ancestry, and was raised Protestant. He attended Sir John A. Macdonald Collegiate Institute but then changed schools and went to Stephen Leacock Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, Ontario. Myers also attended Second City at the age of 19. He began working in commercials at age eight, and at ten he made a commercial for British Columbia Hydro Electric with Gilda Radner playing his mother. He was a very popular person in his school. During high school, to make girls laugh, he would go into the Wayne’s World character that later came to be known as Wayne Campbell. The day he finished his high school finals he got into Second City. Later, he left Second City to tour England with comedian Neil Mullarkey. In May of 2009, Myers announced that he had become a citizen of the United States.

One of Myers' first acting jobs was in a TV commercial when he was ten years old. Gilda Radner played his mother. A few months later, according to Myers, his brother was teasing him about his "girlfriend (Radner) being on some stupid show on Saturday." Myers swore that one day, he too would be on that show.
