Personal Quote:

I want to break the Front Page Challenge record of 37 years with 22 Minutes. After season 38, we will have a wrap party. We play the role of the fool and we constantly remind ourselves of that. But the fool plays a vital role in the policy of the country, and that role doesn't diminish over time. [during the eleventh season of This Hour Has 22 Minutes (1992)] See more »

Trivia:

He and his brother Paul Donovan were co-founders of Salter Street Films (1983 - 2003). See more »
