"Internet Troll"

From Wikipedia:
David Scott "Dave" Foley (born January 4, 1963) is a Canadian actor, comedian, writer, director, and producer best known for his work in The Kids in the Hall, NewsRadio, A Bug's Life, Celebrity Poker Showdown and Dan Vs.. He also frequently appears on The Late Late Show on CBS.

After dropping out of high school, Foley pursued standup comedy for about a year in the Toronto Second City Training Centre where he began taking improv classes. There, he met Kevin McDonald. McDonald got Foley a job with him as an usher at a local art house movie theatre. Together, they formed the original 'The Kids in the Hall'.

In October 1989, The Kids in the Hall debuted on TV, with a cast of Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson. Some of Foley's famous characters include Hecubus, one of the Sizzler sisters, the A. T. & Love boss, Bruno Puntz Jones, Mr. Heavyfoot, Jocelyn, and Lex. The show ended in April 1994.

Foley has been a guest on many television series. These include 'Becker', 'Carpoolers', 'Committed', 'Desperate Housewives', 'Dinner for Five', 'Father of the Pride', 'Grounded for Life', 'Hot Properties', 'I'm with Her', 'In Plain Sight', 'Joey', 'Just Shoot Me!', 'Las Vegas', 'Less Than Kind', 'Little Mosque on the Prairie', 'Scrubs', 'The King of Queens', 'The New Adventures of Old Christine', 'Stargate Atlantis', 'The Tick', 'Brothers & Sisters', 'Will & Grace', 'Hot in Cleveland', 'Eureka', 'Leverage' and 'Maron'.

Foley showed up drunk for a podcast interview with Maron and tagged along when Marc wanted to track down an abusive follower on Twitter named Dragonmaster.
