BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, “LETTERKENNY LIVE!” ADDS NEW SHOWS & MARKETS TO HIGHLY ACCLAIMED 2018 NATIONAL TOUR STARRING JARED KEESO, NATHAN DALES, K TREVOR WILSON AND MARK FORWARD
Based on overwhelming demand, new shows and markets have been added to the 2018 “LETTERKENNY LIVE” tour – a 90-minute comedy experience, starring Jared Keeso (Wayne), Nathan Dales (Daryl), K Trevor Wilson (Dan), and Mark Forward (Coach), the stars of the wildly popular award-winning CraveTV original series LETTERKENNY. “LETTERKENNY LIVE, THE ENCORE!” tour, presented by Puppers Premium Lager and CraveTV, and produced by New Metric Media, will feature original sketches performed by the LETTERKENNY favourites, additional sketches and video not seen on the original tour, as well as original stand-up sets from Wilson and Mark Forward. The tour will make stops across Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia before wrapping at Vancouver’s legendary Orpheum Theatre on December 18th.
LETTERKENNY revolves around the dustups Wayne and his buds get into with their small-town Ontario rivals; the Hicks, the Skids and the Hockey Players. Created by Keeso, the first ever original series from Bell Media’s streaming service, CraveTV, immediately garnered national attention and recently took home the awards for “Best Writing in a Comedy Program or Series” and “Best Direction in a Comedy Program or Series” at the 2018 Canadian Screen Awards. Keeso and co-writer/director Jacob Tierney also took home a 2018 Writers Guild of Canada Screenwriting Award for TV Comedy. On June 29th, an all-new six-pack of episodes launched exclusively on CraveTV, featuring fellow Canadian Jay Baruchel as guest star Hard Right Jay, a Tiki Torch carrying out of towner who stirs things up in Letterkenny.
Earlier this year, the LETTERKENNY LIVE! tour took over venues across the country, celebrating numerous sold-out shows over its 26-city run, which kicked off in Halifax on February 28th before wrapping in Surrey on April 6th.
