About the Show

Welcome to the absurdist world of TALLBOYZ, a group of young, diverse comedians whose fun, silly antics range from a competition over who is whose best friend to a casual trip to the afterlife. The TALLBOYZ consist of Tim, Guled, Franco, and Vance, alternating between playing heightened versions of themselves and sliding into cartoonish sketches about friendship, politics, bro culture and everyday life. A mission to Mars gone wrong. A secret that could derail a boy band. An airplane bathroom attendant? Over the course of the show, the Boyz face everything from grammar-induced rap beefs to big life revelations, all with the same hilarious, upbeat demeanour.

Produced by Accent Entertainment, TALLBOYZ is created by Guled Abdi, Vance Banzo, Tim Blair, and Franco Nguyen with Adam Bovoletis and Luc Mandl. Bruce McCulloch is Executive Producer and Director, and Susan Cavan is Executive Producer. Paula Smith is Supervising Producer, Caitlin Brown is Co-Producer and Jen Goodhue is Consulting Producer. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Programming; Trish Williams is Executive Director, Scripted Content, Michelle Daly is Senior Director, Comedy, Scripted Content; and Karen Tsang is Executive in Charge of Production.
