He was cast along with his friend Thomas Dave as one of the ‘McKenzie Brothers’ and their humorous portrayal of the stereotypical Canadian men earned them a lot of popularity with both Canadian and American audiences.
His given name is Fredrick Allan Moranis, he was born on the 18th day of April 1954 in Toronto Ontario Canada. Currently, there is a deficit of relevant information on his family background but records have it that his family is Jewish and his grandparents (paternal) named Lena and Jacob Moranis went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as Russian-Jewish immigrants and later moved on to Canada.

A scrutiny of his educational background revealed that he achieved his early education at an elementary school in Canada along with the frontman of the Rock Band Rush named Geddy Lee. Both Rick and Geddy Lee proceeded to Sir Sandford Fleming Secondary School for further education.
He came to prominence around 1980 in the sketch comedy show Second City Television and later appeared in several Hollywood films, including Strange Brew, Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, Little Shop of Horrors, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (and its sequels), Little Giants, Parenthood, The Flintstones and My Blue Heaven.

As a then single parent, Moranis was quoted as saying, “I’m a single parent and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the traveling involved in making movies.
So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn’t miss it.” In 2000, Moranis provided voice work in the animated film, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys.
In 2003, he provided his voice to the animated film Brother Bear and went on to release an album (The Agoraphobic Cowboy), a comedy album in 2013 entitled My Mother’s Brisket & Other Love Songs and even gave a rare interview in 2013.

Rick was replaced by Daniel Stern at the last moment.
