You know Catherine O’Hara from Christopher Guest‘s mockumentaries like Waiting For and For Your Consideration, and her latest tour de force Schitt’s Creek. But she got her start in the 80s on SCTV.
She can sing dance and imitate any showbiz stereotype, but her greatest creation might just be Lola Heatherton, a mash-up of real-life 70s sexy kittens Joey Heatherton and Lola Falana. This promo for her Holiday special Love Spirit is the apex of Lola and The Juul Haalmeyer Dancers! (Look for Martin Short in the chorus.)
“Wait until I shake your tree boys – I’ll break those Christmas balls!“
