The Drunk and On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour is a Canadian television comedy series, which aired during the 2011 television season on Action.

Described by its producers as "Curb Your Enthusiasm after it got smashed in the head with a hammer and force-fed liquor and drugs",[1] the show stars Trailer Park Boys actors John Paul Tremblay, Robb Wells and Mike Smith as fictionalized versions of themselves. The fictional trio are starring in a new sketch comedy series, Happy Funtime Hour, but their production goes awry when a mad scientist named Doctor Funtime (Maury Chaykin) forces them to ingest a hallucinogenic substance he created. The actors must go through unpredictable events while constantly meeting different characters.[2]

Cast[edit]

The supporting cast includes Maury Chaykin, John Dunsworth, Patrick Roach, Jay Baruchel, Richard Collins, Amy Sedaris[2] and Luke Gordon. All three main actors also play numerous minor and one-off characters, utilizing an array of prosthetics.


Premiere[edit]

The series premiered in Canada on 22 July 2011, and aired two episodes three Friday evenings in a row. It is unknown how the 27 July 2010 death of Maury Chaykin will affect the series.[3] Chaykin's "mad scientist" character had already been re-cast once; musician Alex Lifeson was originally set to take on that role[4] before bowing out in early 2010.
