Bringing their Even More Drunk, High and Unemployed Tour to Manchester
Canadian cult-icons Trailer Park Boys announce their return to the UK with the EVEN MORE Drunk, High and Unemployed Tour: Featuring Ricky, Julian and Bubbles in Manchester, Cambridge and London, including an appearance live on stage at Manchester Academy on Wednesday 16th September.
See what happens when the boys leave Sunnyvale behind to bring Julian’s latest money making scams, Bubbles’ Hollywood dreams and Ricky’s big ideas on the road. No parole officers, no Randy and no Mr. Lahey. Having sold-out the Hammersmith Apollo on their last visit, the boys promise more drinking, swearing, drinking, hot dogs, music and drinking in the anything-can-happen, uncensored live show.
Originally the concept of creator/director Mike Clattenburg, Trailer Park Boys began as a short film starring John Paul Tremblay (Julian) and Robb Wells (Ricky), which debuted to rave reviews at the 1999 Atlantic Film Festival. The premise: a camera crew chronicles the boys’ adventures living in the Sunnyvale trailer park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Recruiting Mike Smith (Bubbles) to complete the haphazard trio, the short film spun-off a mockumentary‐style show which ran for seven seasons and produced two TV specials. Guest stars included Rush’s Alex Lifeson, Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach and featured fellow Nova Scotian Ellen Page in one of her earliest roles.
Ricky, Julian and Bubbles’ first full‐length film Trailer Park Boys: The Movie hit theatres in 2007 and the follow up Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day served as a finale to the series in 2009. A third film Trailer Park Boys: Don’t Legalize it was released in 2014 before Netflix revived the series with an eighth season last fall.
Since the original series ended in 2008, Wells, Tremblay and Smith have toured a variety of Trailer Park Boys live shows throughout North America, Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland and Ireland; created a second series The Drunk and on Drugs Happy Funtime Hour; launched their own web channel Swearnet.com; and performed with the likes of Guns n’ Roses and Rush.
