The iconic beer-loving Mckenzie Brothers played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas were first known on "Second City Television" and "Saturday Night Live" in 1980.

Now, Moranis and Thomas are set to return and reunite for the upcoming benefit event in Toronto, Canada that will be held on July 18, 2017. According to The Hollywood Reporter, new comedian veterans who will be present at the event are SCTV alums including Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Joe Flaherty and Martin Short.

Aside from them, "Ghostbusters" actor Dan Aykroyd and "Kids in the Hall" cast including Scott Thompson will also participate in The Second City concert bill.

It can be recalled that Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas portray the roles of Canadian bumpkins Doug and Bob McKenzie. Finally, fans will get the chance to see these characters again as Thomas and Moranis reprise their roles on the imaginary talk show, "Great White North."

Reminiscing with McKenzie Brothers

GWN showcases McKenzies' act as a way of mocking the government after the mandate for Canadian TV content rules. It was then followed by a spinoff in 1983 with a cult comedy show entitled "Strange Brew." In the same year, their fame cannot be contained, leading them to a stateside late night transition on "Saturday Night Live."

One cannot deny that the two truly became a pop culture for both Canada and US. Their roles were also revived in a Canadian animated sitcom entitled "Bob & Doug," which first debuted on Global in 2009.

However, viewers did not really know that they started from a total scratch. "Rick and I used to sit in the studio by ourselves, almost like 'happy hour,' drink real beers, cook back bacon, literally make hot snack food for ourselves while we improvised and just talked," Thomas once said in an interview.

As the earlier mentioned source revealed, the proceeds will go to Jake Thomas. He is Dave Thomas' nephew. He is currently suffering from spinal cord injury due to a snow bowling accident that happened last January. Since then, Jake was paralyzed and is needing more health care attention.
