The show Schitt's Creek may have come from the brains of Canadians, but it's enjoyed by audiences all over the world. Although much of the cast is from the great north, fans of the show often wonder, is Chris Elliot Canadian?\nIf you've ever watched the hit series, you'll know Elliot from his role as Roland Schitt, the long-time mayor of Schitt's Creek. His character is known for frequently messing with Johnny Rose (played by Eugene Levy) and avoiding his duties as the town's leader.\nAs mentioned earlier, the sitcom is known to be a very Canadian show — in fact, every single member of the cast was born in Canada, apart from Elliot.\nThe 59-year-old actor was born on May 31, 1960, in the big city of New York. Elliot was introduced to the spotlight at an early age as his mother was a model and TV director, and his father was part of a comedy duo called Bob and Ray.\nThe American star first broke into the business when he was hired as a production assistant on Late Night with David Letterman back in 1982. As the years went on, Elliot began writing for the show, and would eventually make several appearances on screen.\nView this post on Instagram One screen cap a day until the season 6 premiere of Schitt’s Creek. 57/112 . . . . #schittscreek johnnyrose #rolandschitt #davidrose #alexisrose #moirarose #eugenelevy #chriselliott #rosebudd #cbc #poptv A post shared by This Is Schitt (@fromawhileago) on Nov 12, 2019 at 10:29am PST\nOther credits that the actor has collected over the years include Groundhog Day, Scary Movie 2, How I Met Your Mother, Everybody Loves Raymond, and The Last Man on Earth, just to name a few.\nElliot joined the cast of Schitt's Creek when the series premiered back in 2015 and has appeared in all five seasons so far.\nView this post on Instagram never steal a rose's food #eugenelevy #chriselliott #dogs #funny #schittscreek A post shared by Eugene Levy as Dogs (@eugenelevyasdogs) on Nov 9, 2019 at 12:43pm PST\nIt's been hilarious and heartwarming to see Roland Schitt's character growth over the years, and it will definitely be interesting to see what happens to him in the upcoming sixth season.\nThe final season of Schitt's Creek will air on January 7.
