Early Life

Frederick Allan Moranis was born on April 18, 1953 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Rick was born in a Jewish family and attended high school alongside Geddy Lee, the future frontman of the Canadian rock band Rush. Lаtеr, bоth Rісk аnd Gеddу wеnt tо Ѕіr Ѕаndfоrd Flеmіng Ѕесоndаrу Ѕсhооl. He had Jewish ancestors of Hungarian extraction, coming from the Kingdom of Hungary, Kolozsvar. It is presently known as Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Rісk wаѕ іntеrеѕtеd іn соmеdу еvеr ѕіnсе hе wаѕ уоung and later took it up as a career.

Career

Rick started his entertainment career as a radio DJ while he was still attending high school in the mid-70s. During this period, he operated under the radio moniker “Rick Allen,” and started broadcasting on three Toronto radio stations.

In 1977, Moranis teamed up with fellow Jewish Canadian Ken Finkleman to create “90 Minutes Live,” a series of comedy radio specials and television comedy pilots that were aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Finkleman and Moranis also collaborated on a number of television pilots, many of which starred both comedians in various sketches. By this point, the pair became notorious for their mockumentary comedy style.

In 1980 Rick joined the cast of “Second City Television,” a Canadian comedy sketch show. During this period, he became famous for his impressions of figures like Woody Allen and Merv Griffin. Following up on the success of “Second City Television” across Canada and the United States, Moranis and Dave Thomas teamed up to create a new sketch called “The Great White North.” The sketch featured the now-famous characters Bob and Doug McKenzie, which were meant to be Canadian stereotypes. These two characters became immensely popular and the duo were requested to have a sketch in every show. They eventually released the top selling comedy album called “Great White North,” which was nominated for a Grammy and earned a triple-platinum certification.

Moranis’ success as a comedian led to his first film role in the 1983 film “Strange Brew.” It was followed by several major roles that lasted over a decade, most notably “Ghostbusters,” “Spaceballs,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and its sequels. He also established himself as a voice actor with roles in animated series such as “Gravedale High.”

During the 90s, Moranis appeared in some of his last major film roles for many years. These included the commercially successful “The Flintstones” and the box-office flop “Big Bully.” He then appeared in “Honey, I Blew Up the Kid,” and “Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.” Other than a few voice acting roles in films such as Disney’s “Brother Bear,” Moranis remained quiet for the next few decades. He took a break from acting to focus on being a single parent to his kids, after his wife passed away.

In 2001 Moranis provided voice work in the animated film “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys” after six long years. He released an album titled “The Agoraphobic Cowboy” in 2005. The album was nominated for the 2006 Grammy for Best Comedy Album. In 2006, he reprised his earlier role in “Brother Bear 2.” The very next year Moranis reunited with Dave Thomas for a 24th anniversary special of Bob and Doug McKenzie, titled Bob and Doug McKenzie’s 2–4 Anniversary. In 2013 he released the comedy album titled “My Mother’s Brisket & Other Love Songs”, his first album in eight years.

Although he declined to appear in the 2016 “Ghostbusters” reboot, he announced in 2020 that he had agreed to reprise his famous role in a new entry for the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” franchise. He also announced that this new film would simply be entitled “Shrunk,” and that it would be his first official return to the acting world in 23 years.

Personal Life & Relationships

Rick Moranis married costume designer, Ann Belsky in 1986. The couple had two children together, named Міtсhеll аnd Rасhеl. However their married life was short lived as Belsky tragically passed away from cancer in 1991. Left with the responsibility of raising two children Moranis gradually backed away from his prominent role within the entertainment industry and focused wholeheartedly on being a single father, ensuring that the kids had at least one loving parent during their upbringing. This was later revealed to be the main reason for Rick’s disappearance from the public limelight, and many fans applauded his decision.
