Canadian comedy “Letterkenny” to resume North American live show tour in 2022


TORONTO — Pitter patter, let’s get back to the theatre.

Crave’s acclaimed comedy “Letterkenny” is returning to the stage for the first time since the COVID-19 crisis shut down live performances.

After the pandemic cut the North American tour short last spring, “Letterkenny Live!” is set to resume in 2022.

The 90-minute show features nine stars from the Canadian series performing new sketches and more.

The tour will kick off in Kitchener, Ont., on Feb. 3, and will travel to Canadian cities including Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg.

Shot in and around Sudbury, Ont., “Letterkenny” stars Jared Keeso and Nathan Dales as best buds in a small town that lives for hockey, partying and its population of colourful characters.

The show, which is stacked with quotable catchphrases, found a cult following in Canada when it debuted on the Crave streaming platform in 2016.

Two years later, a deal with U.S. streamer Hulu drew an even larger audience, winning new fans in Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.
