TORONTO — It was a veritable smorgasbord of Canadiana as comedian Mike Myers surprised Los Angeles concertgoers by slipping into his Austin Powers persona.
The Scarborough, Ont.-native jumped onto stage on Sunday night during a set by Crowded House frontman Neil Finn and his son Liam. The backing band included British Columbia native Mac DeMarco.
Myers, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with “Canada,” performed a rendition of “BBC,” a song made famous in his 1997 film “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.”
Clips were posted on the Instagram page for Largo, the club which hosted the concert, with a message saying the performance “brought the house down.”
Myers has been stepping back into his comedy persona more frequently in recent months.
He played Austin Powers’ arch nemesis Dr. Evil on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk show, and showed up on Jimmy Kimmel as Donald Trump’s personal physician Harold Bornstein.
