After taking a role in his high school play on a whim, Mochrie directed his passions toward acting and comedy, which he pursued via the Studio 58 theater school in Vancouver, Canada following graduation in 1975. Mochrie remained with Studio 58 until 1986, at which point he relocated to Toronto, Canada and joined the famed Second City improv troupe. During his tenure with the group, Mochrie began working with fellow comedian Ryan Stiles, with whom he'd form a long-lasting partnership.

(Channel 4 1988-1999); following several guest appearances, he became a regular cast member on the program in 1993. In 1998, both Mochrie and Stiles relocated to the United States for the show's American spin-off, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" (ABC/ABC Family 1998-2003, 2005-07).
