The Trailer Park Boys Feature
Can’t make it to Montreal Comiccon to meet The Trailer Park Boys? No worries! My own chaotic trailer park life in Lincoln, NB, rivals Sunnyvale’s antics. Hey Boys, need a new filming spot? We've got it all—crackheads, decrepit trailers, and lawnmower symphonies. Just bring your smarts!

The Trailer Park Boys are making the rounds

Montreal Comiccon is up and running this weekend at The Palais des congrès. The highlight is definitely The Trailer Park Boys, who will be on hand signing autographs and posing for photos. I wish I could be there, but it’s over 820 km and would take about 8 hours to drive there one way. I mean, I like the guys, but not enough to sit in a car for over 8 hours like some sort of road trip warrior from a sitcom about long, perilous journeys!

The Trailer Park Boys in Montreal

Living in my own version of Sunnyvale Trailer Park

With all the antics happening around our place with the crazy neighbours and police drama every other night, we could be the perfect filming location for the next season of The Trailer Park Boys. This place has it all—crackhead characters, abandoned decrepit trailers, and garbage-filled yards. It’s like Mother Nature sneezed and the landlord gave up on germ control, skipping tenant vetting and property upkeep entirely.

Oh, we dream of the day we can finally escape the clutches of our bills and snag our own slice of paradise to call home, free from pesky neighbours and their lawnmower symphonies. Winning the lottery would be like icing on the cake, letting us wipe out debt and bask in the joy of owning our very own piece of land.

Who are The Trailer Park Boys?

The Trailer Park Boys are Canada’s crown jewels of mischief hailing from a tiny town in Nova Scotia. Robb Wells (Ricky), John Paul Tremblay (Julian), and Mike Smith (Bubbles) have conjured up lovable, albeit questionable, characters. Their antics have snowballed into a global sensation. Over the past 18 years, “The Boys” have scored more headlines than Julian’s contraband stash, winning over legions of fans who proudly embrace their inner misfit.

Originally, the wild and wacky world of The Trailer Park Boys was birthed as a short film starring Tremblay and Robb Wells, which wowed everyone at the 1999 Atlantic Film Festival. The setup? A camera crew tracks the wild shenanigans of the boys living it up in the Sunnyvale Trailer Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Fast forward eleven seasons, three feature films, and a slew of live specials, and the camera still can’t get enough of Bubbles, Ricky, and Julian.

The brand skyrocketed to hilarious new heights when Netflix snagged the television series starting with Season 8. In 2015, The Trailer Park Boys hit iTunes with their podcast, which was so funny it got a Best of iTunes nomination and over 1.2 million downloads—probably half of those from baffled grandmas. Their live tours keep selling out across North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia, proving that laughter knows no borders. In October 2016, The Boys dropped a new Netflix special called “Out Of The Park Europe,” documenting their misadventures through London, Berlin, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, and Amsterdam. Hilarity ensued.

In a stroke of genius, Wells, Tremblay, and Smith gave birth to Swearnet.com, their devil-may-care, uncensored online comedy haven. Among the die-hard fans are none other than Jimmy Kimmel, Snoop Dogg (who thought Season 10 was so lit, he jumped in), Axl Rose, Billy Bob Thornton, Noel Fielding, Verne Troyer, Rival Sons, and even the legendary rockers from Rush.

I miss that show

It would be hilariously epic if the gang reunited for a few more seasons of the show! Of course, we’d sadly miss the antics of John Dunsworth as Jim Lahey and Richard Collins as Phil Collins. Unless someone’s pulling a fast one, I’m pretty sure the rest of the crew is still kicking and ready to cause more chaos!

As I’ve already mentioned, there’s a fantastic spot right here in Lincoln, New Brunswick for filming the new season if you’re facing location woes. Heck, we’ve got a whole empty lot where Bubbles could set up his shed and start his next big adventure!


The Trailer Park Boys Conclusion

So, while I may not make it to Montreal Comiccon this weekend to meet the Trailer Park Boys, I’ll be here managing my own little corner of chaos, which at times rivals Sunnyvale Trailer Park in sheer absurdity. If The Boys are reading this—Lincoln, New Brunswick would love to host your next escapade. Just remember to bring your “super smart adult things” because you’ll need them!
