Young Drunk Punk

About the Show

  • TV
  • HD

1.       From the clever and caustic mind of Bruce McCulloch, YOUNG DRUNK PUNK is an original comedy about the trials and tragedy of growing up on the fringes of society. It's a rough and hilarious look back at simpler times and a complicated age - and at two young rebels determined to stay true to themselves, and fight against the scratchy caftan of conformity.

Ian McKay (Tim Carlson) and his best friend Shinky (Atticus Mitchell) are two young punks searching for their great destinies in the back alleys of Calgary, Alberta, circa 1980. Together, they face down cowboys and oilmen, hockey goons and movie snobs, odd-jobbers and hairdressers and through it all find a way to grow up without selling out.

With the help of Ian's flawed, but loving family (father Lloyd (Bruce McCulloch), mom Helen (Tracy Ryan), and his outrageously outgoing sister Belinda (Allie MacDonald), Ian and Shinky find new opportunities to blow minds, exporting their special brand of offbeat revolution for the 80's - seeking out love and working to change the world, one young drunk punk at a time.
