 career
  The Kids in the Hall
As a member of The Kids in the Hall comedy troupe, McCulloch frequently wrote surreal monologues, films or songs. He also directed several of the filmed sketches. Memorable characters included the Flying Pig, Cabbage Head, talkative schoolchild Gavin, pop starlet Tammy, and grumpy middle-aged man Gordon.

McCulloch appeared in The Kids in the Hall movie Brain Candy, released in 1996. McCulloch drew controversy with his Cancer Boy character, introduced on the series' final episode, in which he plays a dying young cancer patient using wheelchair who relates otherwise depressing news in a monosyllabic tone and with a cheerful smile, and even releases a hit single entitled "Whistle When You're Low." Paramount Pictures fought to edit out the offending scenes, yet they were still kept in. Among other characters, McCulloch also appeared as Grivo, a depressed rock star.

He co-wrote, starred in, and was executive producer of the Kids in the Hall 2010 reunion project Death Comes to Town.

 Music
McCulloch has released two albums: 1995’s Shame-Based Man (praised by Allmusic as the “most remarkable of comedy albums: one that bears repeated listenings”) and 2002’s Drunk Baby Project.

McCulloch also directed the music video for the Tragically Hip’s song “My Music at Work,” for which he won the award of "Best Director" at the 2000 MuchMusic Video Awards. McCulloch has stated on his website that he is close friends with Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie. The video shares much in common with many The Kids in the Hall sketches, including its office setting, camera angles, and some thematic elements.

  Movies
McCulloch played Fred Wright in the 1987 TV mini-series Anne of Avonlea. He also had a role in the 1999 comedy film Dick.

McCulloch also co-wrote and had a bit part in Superman's 50th Anniversary: A Celebration of the Man of Steel . In the CBS primetime special, he played a patron of a store that, among other things, sold counterfeit Kryptonite.
