Actor Martin Short met his so-called doppelganger, the CBC's Shane Foxman, at the broadcaster's Vancouver studio Wednesday.

"Shane, doppelganger," Short said upon greeting Foxman, who, for the past 20 years, has been mistaken for the famous comedian. Short was in town promoting his memoir I Must Say: My Life As a Humble Comedy Legend and later spoke with the CBC's Ian Hanomansing about being an author.

After sharing a hug, Foxman said: "We're the the same height."

"We are the exact same height. You're much better looking," Short replied.
