Bruce McCulloch: Young Drunk Punk

Comedian, writer, director and legendary Kid in the Hall Bruce McCulloch combines stand-up, live music and assorted autobiographical insights in his new solo Young Drunk Punk at the Firehall Arts Centre.

Young Drunk Punk chronicles Mr. McCulloch’s life, from his early days as a young punk in 1980s Alberta to his flannel-clad stretch in grunge-era Toronto to his pajama-donning days as a family man in the Hollywood Hills.

 Young Drunk Punk isn’t an autobiographical one-man play in a traditional sense. It’s more of an extended riff on the meaning of families — the ones we are born into and the ones we create. It gets personal and a little sentimental, but it also gets dark, raunchy, surreal and hilarious, often all at once.

He’s best-known for the hilarious personae he played on Kids in the Hall – from a quirky cop to Cabbage Head – but when beloved Canadian funnyman Bruce McCulloch performs this week in Vancouver, he’ll be playing a decidedly different character: himself.
