Eugene Levy's Career
The Toronto output of the hit musical Godspell opened at the Royal Alexandra Theatre with the intention of running for a few dozen subscription performances. Instead of a touring cast, the cast was made up entirely of local performers. Many actors, including Eugen, Victor Garber, Andrea Martin, Gilda Radner, Dave Thomas, and Martin Short, launched their careers in the Toronto production, as did the show’s musical director, Paul Shaffer. This production featured Howard Shore on saxophone. The estimated scheduled run at the Royal Alexandra ended after an enthusiastic response from the audience, and the show was moved up to the Bayview Playhouse in Leaside. The Bayview Playhouse production ran until August 1973, with 488 performances, a then-record run.
On SCTV, original Levy characterizations include news reporter Earl Camembert, comic Bobby Bittman, scandal sheet entrepreneur Dr. Raoul Withers, “report on business” Brian Johns, 3-D horror auteur Woody Tobias Jr., cheerful Leutonian accordionist Stan Schmenge, lecherous dream interpreter Raoul Wilson, hammer-voiced sports broadcaster Lou Jaffe, diminutive union patriarch Sid Dithers.

He appeared in Splash, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Club Paradise, Stay Tuned, Multiplicity, Serendipity, and other comedies in the 1980s and 1990s.
