TallBoyz

About the Show

The TALLBOYZ (8x30) are back for a second season to explore everything from roommates who neglect their chores to the challenges of fatherhood. Measuring in at 25’2” collectively, Guled Abdi, Vance Banzo, Tim Blair and Franco Nguyen return to jab at popular culture from a very tall point of view. This season’s sketches range from silly, absurdist themes, like a love song for bike couriers or rearing an oil barrel, to hard hitting examinations of power, privilege, racism, blackface and of course, spicy food.  

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, and Greig Dymond is Executive in Charge of Production.

Stream episodes of TallBoyz now on CBC Gem.
