The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival (TOsketchfest) presents YOUNG DRUNK PUNK, written and performed by Kids in the Hall funny-man Bruce McCulloch,live onstage Tuesday, October 21, 2014. This special live performance will launch McCulloch’s new book Let’s Start a Riot: a Series of Bravery and Stupidity, and includes a book signing and post-show reception.
YOUNG DRUNK PUNK, which combines stand-up, live music and assorted autobiographical insights, premiered at TOsketchfest in 2013, and has recently been greenlit by City for a new 13-episode scripted comedy tv series–created, written, and executive produced by McCulloch–set to air in January 2015.
YOUNG DRUNK PUNK chronicles McCulloch’s journey from his wild early days as a ‘young punk’ in 1980s Alberta to his flannel plaid days and futon nights in 1990s Toronto. From scowling teenager to father of two, McCulloch hopes the show serves as a “poor, but ultimately redemptive example for high school graduates today.” The infamous Kid is all grown up, but his singular brand of humour and signature wit remain firmly intact.
