Through years of being in comedy, Colin Mochrie’s net worth stands at $1 million today.
Colin Mochrie was born in Scotland, but later moved to Canada and so claims to be a Canadian, a fact which his fellow co-stars in the show Whose Line, would make fun of.
Those who watch him perform so effortlessly, would be shocked to know that as a child he was extremely shy and wouldn’t interact with other children around him much.
He also had absolutely no inclination towards comedy, unlike many comedians who feel the pull of the stage from a young age. However, this changed for Mochrie when he performed in a play in his school and realized how much he enjoyed performing comedy.
After this, he pursued his professional education in this field only as he attended the Studio 58 theater school.
Colin Mochrie net worth began to build up when he started working with the Vancouver TheatreSports League. Though initially, Mochrie wasn’t getting the attention he desired, his fans started increasing slowly. Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles met during this time and started working together.
