Joe Shuster is the co-creator of Superman.  But today’s post is about his cousin, Frank Shuster.

Shuster, OC (Officer of the Order of Canada in 1996), was born on  September 5, 1916, in Toronto, Ontario.  He grew up in Niagara Falls.

He is best known as part of the comedy duo Wayne and Shuster – with Johnny Wayne as the other half.

He and his wife, Ruth, had two children, Rosie and Steve. Rosie is a comedy writer, who worked for Saturday Night Live.  Steve is also a comedian, as a stand-up.

Frank Shuster died on January 13, 2002, in Toronto, Ontario at the age of 85.

What a talented family!

    We seem to have plenty of good actors from Canada, eh? Hollywood must build an extension office in the Wetcoast. Yup, back to rain.
