Catherine O'Hara on Schitt's Creek and the joy of playing a bad mom
Catherine O'Hara, one of Canada's funniest exports, is back for the second season of CBC's Schitt's Creek. The riches-to-rags comedy follows a bankrupt family forced to move to a town they once bought as a joke.
The Beetlejuice and Home Alone star joins guest host Tom Power to discuss her return to the city that launched her career, why funny women aren't a shocking new species, and the distinct pleasures of playing a bad mom.
"Maybe I get it out of my system," she laughs. "I don't know why I love playing parents that have no right to be parents."
The second season of Schitt's Creek is now airing on CBC TV on Tuesday nights.
