THE SHOW

"The Ricky, Julian and Bubbles Community Service Variety Show" is a new live theater show performed in character, by the stars of the hit Showcase television program Trailer Park Boys. The show is borne out of the premise that Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are in 'your town' to fulfill court ordered community service requirements by performing a puppet show aimed at demonstrating the dangers of using alcohol and drugs, and incorporating lots of audience participation.

TRAILER PARK BOYS HISTORY

Trailer Park Boys is a popular Canadian mockumentary television series focusing on the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents, some of whom are ex-convicts living in fictional SunnyvaleTrailer Park, located near Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. The Show premiered in April 2001; its creator and director is Mike Clattenburg.

Shot from the cameraman's point of view (à la COPS), the low-budget program became something of a rarity in English Canada: a homegrown phenomenon. For example, characters (particularly Bubbles) often appear on novelty T-shirts. The show's lead trio have toured with Our Lady Peace, and Guns N' Roses, with whom Bubbles sang his trademark song "Liquor and Whores". The Trailer Park Boys have also appeared in music videos with The Tragically Hip, while Bubbles has appeared with Rush, George Canyon and Snow, and they have been presenters and hosts on numerous award shows, such as the Junos - always in character.

Several famous artists have appeared on the show over the years, such as Alex Lifeson from Rush, singer Rita MacNeil, Sebastian Bach from Skid Row, and singer/songwriter, the late Denny Doherty in the season seven finale "A Shitriver Runs Through It".

The Trailer Park Boys show has been a huge success on the cable network Showcase, where it's constantly been one of the network's highest-rated series ever. It has aired in Australia on the Comedy Channel, in the United Kingdom and Spain on Paramount Comedy, in the Republic of Ireland on Channel 6, in Iceland on Skjáreinn, in New Zealand on TV 2, in Israel on Xtra HOT, in the Netherlands on Comedy Central Netherlands, in Denmark on DR2, in Portugal on SIC Radical, in Germany on Comedy Central Germany, and in Finland on Nelonen. In the United States, BBC America formerly aired a censored version of the show, but it is no longer part of their lineup. The show just launched in Poland on Comedy Central Polska
