Dave Foley

Dave Foley, one of the true masters of sketch comedy and an alumnus of the hugely successful Canadian comedy troupe Kids in the Hall, just ended a five-season run on the NBC sitcom NewsRadio.

In addition to his comedic work on television, Foley has developed an impressive resume of feature films including Paramount's Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy, The Wrong Guy, which he co-wrote and starred in, and New Line Cinema's Blast From the Past, in which he starred opposite Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone. Foley is currently in production on the 20th Century Fox comedy Monkey Bone, also with Fraser.

Yet it's the role of a lovable ant named Flik in one of 1998's most successful films, Disney's A Bug's Life, that has made Dave Foley a household name.
