How Jared Keeso Almost Ruined The Don Cherry Movie

Jared Keeso in Letterkenny

Jared Keeso in Letterkenny

“How’re ye now?”

This simple phrase is both a greeting and secret code to identify devotees of the best Canadian show on television, Letterkenny.

In an alternate universe Letterkenny star and co-creator Jared Keeso might have never gotten to make his smalltown comedy about brawling and social cliques. That’s because a few years ago he got into a bigtown brawl that could have jeopardized his filming of a Don Cherry film as well as his career.

This winding exposition will all make sense if you head over to Fightland to read the interview Keeso did with Sarah about the punch-up in question.

‘Letterkenny’ Is The Best Fight Show On Television

Letterkenny

Letterkenny

We’re super-big fans of the smalltown comedy Letterkenny here at the Risky Fuel household.

Not only do we marvel at the note-perfect characters — the simple-minded jocks, the methed out skids, the shirt-tucked farm boys — but we also marvel at the note-perfect smalltown fight culture.

Sarah wrote about why it’s so great in a piece for Fightland.

An Academic Analysis Of Nate Diaz’s Trash Talk

One of the favourite story devices of Team Risky Fuel is to get actual experts in something to analyze the work of dilettantes and tourists in that field.

In the most recent case, Sarah assembled a team of savvy literary types to look at the sophistication level of the trash talk spouted by pro fighter Nate Diaz.

The results were… illuminating.
