Eric McCormack believes being Canadian is helpful in comedy

Canadian actor Eric McCormack has argued that Canadians posess an “objectivity” that allow them to become great comedic performers.

The former Will & Grace actor believes his Canadian heritage has helped him in his comedy roles in the past.

“I think there’s a certain objectivity that comes from being Canadian,” he said when asked why so many good comedic actors hail from north of the border.

“You’re partly British and partly American; you have a good bird’s eye view of both countries. So much of the comedy that comes out of Canada is impersonation – it’s less ‘look at me’ than it is ‘look at me playing other people’.”
