‘Young Drunk Punk’ is a stand up, poetry and music show written and performed by Bruce McCulloch. It will feature lifelong musical collaborator, Brian Connelly of Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet and Atomic 7 fame.
Bruce has written or performed several one-man shows including Two-Headed Roommate, Jazz Stenographers, Slightly Bigger Cities and most recently The Pink Dot Stories in San Francisco. Bruce has two spoken word/ comedy/ music CD's Shame-based Man and The Drunk Baby Project which also feature Mr. Connelly.
Bruce is a member of the “The Kids in the Hall” who recently returned to T.V. with the limited series “Death Comes to Town.” Bruce spends most of his time in L.A. where he writes and produces for network and cable television. He’s also known as the creator of ABC's short-lived (and perhaps under appreciated) “Carpoolers.”
Bruce has written and/or directed several films including Dog Park starring Luke Wilson, Superstar starring Molly Shannon and Will Ferrell, Stealing Harvard starring Jason Lee and Leslie Mann and Comeback Season starring Ray Liotta. Bruce has also recently acted in episodes of Workaholics and the new season of Arrested Development.
Bruce is calling this show ‘Young Drunk Punk’ as he’s pulling pieces from a book he’s writing of the same name. (And he’s been told it’s good for a show to have a name.) The book loosely chronicles his journey from a young drunk punk in Edmonton to a pajama- clad dad living in the Hollywood Hills. This is his first solo appearance in Toronto in many years.
