WWE superstar and media personality Chris Jericho parlays his larger-than-life persona into comedy with the second season of his series, But I’m Chris Jericho!, now streaming on CBC Network. In the series, Jericho plays a fictional version of himself, spoofing the very bravado that made him famous. He’s surrounded by an ensemble comedic cast including Andy Kindler (Bob’s Burgers), Scott Thompson (The Kids in the Hall) and Colin Mochrie (Whose Line is it Anyway?).
The show’s unique brand of self-deprecating humor resembles the folly HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm meets Lucille Ball’s relentless drive to achieve stardom on the classic sitcom, I Love Lucy.

A collaboration with Hot Topic clothing stores on a T-shirt featuring his likeness and emblazoned with “Jerichoholic,” ensures his name and image are everywhere these days.
