Ricky, Julian and Bubbles
Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are back with a brand new live show, but this time they are not alone – Mr. Lahey and Randy will be there in all their drunken glory. Brace yourselves when The Trailer Park Boys’ Dear Santa Claus, Go F#ck Yourself Tour comes to The Chicago Theatre on Saturday, December 15!
When Bubbles tries to spread the true meaning of Christmas to the world, his good-hearted plans are botched by Julian, who wants to cash in on the festive season, and Ricky’s relentless pursuit to meet the real Santa Claus. If that isn’t enough, all three of them have to deal with the very intoxicated Jim Lahey and his cheeseburger-eating sidekick Randy.
Originally the concept of creator/director Mike Clattenberg, 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 into a mockumentary-style show which ran for seven seasons and produced two TV specials on Showcase. It ended up being that network’s highest-rated Canadian program and has aired in over 15 countries. Their last appearance in Chicago sold out in advance.
