Career

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."
