Inductees

Recognized mainly for her comedic achievements, Deb McGrath has worked in many areas of the entertainment industry, ranging from big-screen movies, writing for television, voice work and children's television to running her own production company and on-stage improvisation. Her most recent work includes a starring role as Mayor Popowitcz on CBC's Little Mosque on the Prairie.

 

Her body of work is diverse, simultaneously making her a well-known name in the industry and showcasing Scarboroughs talent.  After attending Ryerson Polytechnic University's theatre program, McGrath was recruited to work with Toronto's popular live comedy troupe at The Second City in 1983.

 

After much success on stage, she went on to hone her skills behind the scenes, writing and directing four mainstage productions at The Second City.

 

While there, she met her now husband, comedian Colin Mochrie.  Today, McGrath enjoys spending time with her husband and son and is part of Women Fully Clothed, a Toronto-based all-female comedy team. McGrath has served as Scarborough Walk of Fame emcee for the past three years and is now being honoured with her own star for her incredible achievements in the field of entertainment.
