The Mark Twain Prize (2003)

The All-Star Cast


Catherine O'Hara
Catherine O'Hara first began making audiences laugh with the Second City Stage Troop in Toronto. She and fellow cast members co-created and co-starred in S.C.T.V., which earned her an Emmy Award for writing as well as several Emmy nominations. Her film credits include After Hours, Home Alone, A Simple Twist of Fate, Heartburn, Beetlejuice, Last of the High King, Waiting for Guffman, Home Fries, Orange County, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind. She also provided the voice of Sally and Shock in The Nightmare Before Christmas. For television, O'Hara directed episodes of Dream On and The Outer Limits, wrote and co-starred in P.M.S., a short film for Late Night with David Letterman, and acted in three episodes of Six Feet Under. Next year, O'Hara will co-star with Ben Affleck and James Gandolfini in the film Surviving Christmas.
