Hit comedy television show Trailer Park Boys’ Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are bringing their insanely hilarious antics on an Australian tour in March 2012.
The show will have you spending an evening with the Boys as Bubbles tries to create a new career for himself in the movie industry, Julian puts his latest money-making scams into action and Ricky has an idea that can ‘change the world!’ in their first Australian shows.
Having answered to the law in the “Ricky, Julian and Bubbles Community Service Variety Show,” preaching the dangers of substance abuse to avoid jail time, the crew are now on the road without parole officers.
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 idea spun off a mockumentary style show which ran for seven seasons and produced two TV specials on Showcase (2001-2008). The show was Showcases’ highest-rating Canadian program and airs in over 15 countries. Guest stars included Rush’s Alex Lifeson, Sebastian Bach and Rita MacNeil.
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.
