Early years

Christian Duguay was born on January 3, 1970 in Stanford, California. He grew up in Carefree, Arizona and Readfield, Maine. Duguay attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts where he majored in Jazz Theory and Composition. In 1990, Duguay enrolled in the film school at California State University at Northridge, majoring in screenwriting. He performed with the improv comedy group Legitimate Freaks, and later studied at Groundlings Theater. He joined the Groundlings Main Company in 2000.

Personal life

Christian Duguay was married to fellow Groundling Rachel Ramras. The couple is now divorced.

MADtv

Duguay joined the cast of MADtv in 2000, as a repertory performer, for the sixth season. His background as a Groundling veteran served him well in the sketches which he appeared in on the show. Duguay's characters included stubborn, hyperactive teenager Edward and Loopgarue, who, along with his sister Hulahoop (played by Mo Collins), was blinded by a chemical fire as a child and now peddles on the street playing music and singing. He soon found popularity for his celebrity impressions, which included: Jay Leno and *NSYNC's Joey Fatone. However, Duguay is most famous for his George W. Bush impersonation, in which he portrayed the Commander-in-Chief as an "absent minded" and "intellectually challenged buffoon."
