Mike Myers: Thank you! When I joined the cast in 1989, I was the new guy in a group that had been together for three years. I had to make new friends, I didn’t have an office, Nora Dunn kept calling me Mark. She still does. She did it tonight.

But then you do your work, time flies, and one day you look around and you’re one of the guys, and you’re a senior. And then you see the new new guy, nervous, trying to write his first Update feature, and your heart says, “Wow! I must destroy him.”

Here are some clips from the years 1985-1990. I’m the fresh-faced, auburn-haired lad near the end.
