The Trailer Park Boys Loved Working With Rita MacNeil

The late Rita MacNeil was best known for her beautiful singing voice and her great work as both a performer and a host.

But she also had a sly sense of humour - something she got the opportunity to show off as a guest on 'Trailer Park Boys'.

Rita played herself on the show, and when Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith (aka Ricky, Julian and Bubbles, the Trailer Park Boys themselves) were in the red chair, George asked them about working with a Canadian icon.

The boys loved working with Rita - although they did say it could be tough to keep swearing and stay in character with her around.


RIP Rita MacNeil, Cape Breton's First Lady Of Song
