Letterkenny’s Dylan Playfair

On the very funny television show Letterkenny Dylan Playfair plays Reilly, a tough posturing hockey player who isn’t actually that tough.

Playfair knows real tough, though. He encountered it the first time he got into a real fight.

He told Sarah about it in an interview for Fightland.

One of the comic foil’s on the v amusing smalltown Canadian comedy Letterkenny is the “Jonesy” the hockey player, played by Andrew Herr.

On the show Jonesy is a frequently posturing, not entirely successful tough guy.

It turns out one of Herr’s first fights — an incident involving pinched nipple, crying in front of his classmates and shame — wasn’t particularly successful either.

Sarah wrote about it in a My First Fight piece for Fightland.

How Jared Keeso Almost Ruined The Don Cherry Movie

“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

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.
