7. Keith doesn't brag about this (because he's too damn cool), but he appeared as himself on the classic episode of Seinfeld, "The Trip."


9. Keith's biggest connection to '90s sitcoms, though, is his stepson, Friends star Matthew Perry.


In 1981 Keith married Matthew's mom, Suzanne, a journalist and former press secretary to Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. The man is Chandler Bing's stepdad, people.

15. The holidays belong to Keith, who recorded the single greatest reading of the "The Night Before Christmas" EVER.
