Corky and the Juice Pigs

Corky and the Juice Pigs was a CANADIAN muscial comedy trio made up of:

Phil Nichol[d] Phil Nichol..... Greg Nealed Greg Neale..... Sean Cullend and Sean Cullen

It seems official that the group has broken up, and each member is pursuing solo efforts. You may never see Corky and the Juice Pigs perform again other than in reruns of MadTV, Just for Laughs, and Laughing Matters. If you've ever been fortunate enough to see them on TV or live on stage, Phil was the one with the guitar and goofy smile, Greg was the tall guy flailing about wildly, and Sean was the one doing most of the singing and impressions.

The group was around for over 11 years, with the final performances coming in the late 1990s. I saw them for the first time on their 10th anniversary show at The Rivoli (Downtown Toronto, Queen and Spadina) on December 29, 1997, and spent most of the night howling with laughter - that is, except for the occasional part where I was just stunned and confused. Because so much of their act is obviously improvised, sometimes it gets pretty strange, but they manage to bring you back in with a new laugh right away.

I have told the band in person about this website and they thanked me for the effort, and I have also emailed with the management and received their implicit approval (they list this page as the only link for the band as part of Sean Cullen's Biography). But that doesn't mean it is an official site - in fact, to my knowledge there is no official site. I'm just a fan who wants to spread the word about this very cool group.

So here is what you will find on this site:

. Sound Clips (no full songs - just sample bits)
. Lyrics (as best as I can figure them out)
. A Little Off The Top (Corky's 1996 movie debut)
. 10th Anniversary Message (from the programme)
. Corky Trivia (ubiquitous message in brackets)
. Links (the few I could find)

The most up-to-date information I have on the members is:

  • Sean is still represtented by Diamondfield Entertainment, and has his own site at He has had a special on Comedy Central, appeared in a bit on the Montreal Comedy Festival on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and had a CBC show in 2003 called The Sean Cullen Show. Most recently, he has been appearing in the Toronto production of "The Producers".

  • maintains a current list of Phil's upcoming UK appearances. There's also information on current and past events at Chortle's Phil Nichol page.

  • In October 2003, Kerry reported seeing Phil in Doha, Qatar. She said, "I was in the front row and sang 'I used my grandma as a skateboard' when he started, so he dragged me onstage and we sang it together as well as I'm the only Gay Eskimo. Good Fun. Never thought I'd see them/him here." Thanks for the update, Kerry!

  • In March 2002, several fans reported seeing Phil perform as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival doing a show called "Phil Nichol is Stuck." Nichol sang some Corky songs, including "Eskimo," as well as doing his own stuff. A fan named Andrew reports that he and some other Canadian friends "met Phil in the hall outside the show and when he found out we were from Canada he started into an impromptu routine which lasted until the show started." A fan named Ken said of the show, "Someone in the crowd was heckling him in French so he got him up on stage and started hitting him over the head with the microphone. Quite bizarre." Thanks for the reports!

  • Thanks to Cara for sending information that Phil was nominated for an award in the 2002 Edinburgh Festival, and a link to a story about Phil's performance.

  • Greg went up north in Canada to teach and is trying to publish a novel called "Heaven Journals." I've seen other references to a Green travel book and some band photography in the UK, but I don't know if it's the same Greg Neale or not.
