TORONTO — It was a veritable smorgasbord of Canadiana as comedian Mike Myers surprised Los Angeles concertgoers by slipping into his Austin Powers persona.

The Scarborough, Ont.-native jumped onto stage on Sunday night during a set by Crowded House frontman Neil Finn and his son Liam. The backing band included British Columbia native Mac DeMarco.

Myers, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with “Canada,” performed a rendition of “BBC,” a song made famous in his 1997 film “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.”

 

Clips were posted on the Instagram page for Largo, the club which hosted the concert, with a message saying the performance “brought the house down.”

Myers has been stepping back into his comedy persona more frequently in recent months.

He played Austin Powers’ arch-nemesis Dr. Evil on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk show, and showed up on Jimmy Kimmel as Donald Trump’s personal physician Harold Bornstein.
