Air Farce Canada 150

About the Show

Making Canadians laugh for over four decades, AIR FARCE pulls out all the stops for the country’s 150th birthday, capturing the patriotic spirit of the sesquicentennial celebrations in 60 funny, fast-paced minutes. For its first-ever summer special, and for the first time in AIR FARCE history, the whole country will come together to watch at the exact same time — no delays, no time shifting, and nothing held back. AIR FARCE CANADA 150 premieres Saturday, July 1, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m PT) on CBC with an encore broadcast on Monday, July 3 at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT).

AIR FARCE CANADA 150 embraces what it means to be Canadian, satirizing Canada’s past, present and future. Flashing back through history, the special focuses on the people and events that shaped our nation, including the Vikings landing in Newfoundland, the first hockey game, cottage life with Justin and Sophie Trudeau, and pop culture parodies like Canada: The Musical and an all-new take on the classic NFB animation The Log Driver’s Waltz.

AIR FARCE CANADA 150 stars founding troupe members Don Ferguson and Luba Goy, and veterans Jessica Holmes, Craig Lauzon, Darryl Hinds, and Emma Hunter. Joining the troupe for the first time are Chris Wilson and Isabel Kanaan.

Special guest stars scheduled to appear include Chris Hadfield, Lorne Cardinal, Kaniehtiio Horn, Hélène Joy, Eric Peterson and Ed Robertson.
