Trailer Park Boys break character for a mid-tour interview
October 13, 2011
The Trailer Park Boys broke character for an interview with Yes! Weekly, which is a rare treat. Usually, Mike Smith, Robb Wells and Paul Tremblay prefer to act as their famous alter egos - Bubbles, Ricky and Julian.
"It was very confusing in a good way," Smith told the interviewer. "A lot of people thought Spinal Tap was a real band for the longest time. It's worked out the same for us. A lot of fans, when they saw us interviewed in character, they would think, 'Geez, are these guys real?' And to this day, there are still people that argue we are those characters."
Their show, which is a mockumentary about three men living in a trailer park, has seen seven seasons, two full-length movies and two international tours. The show may have stopped filming in 2008, but the trio keep the spirit of the trailer park alive on the stage. They are currently in the midst of their second tour.
