Bubbles is back with another SwearNet live report from the set of Trailer Park Boys Season 12!
In this episode, Bubbles interviews (well, mainly fucks with) a bunch of dicks in Sunnyvale, including Randy, Lahey (who is recovering from a terrible rash and is pretty fucked up because he has been mixing liquor and pills), Ricky, and Marguerite.
Bubbles also talks to Bobby Farrelly, director of Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, and guest of Podcash Episode 45!
PLUS: Preston gets a firm warning about how he should be treating the park residents!
The camera dicks are back in Sunnyvale for Season 12 of Trailer Park Boys and we gave Bubbles a SwearNet mic and asked him to send us a report! He interviews some members of the crew, plus a bunch of familiar fuckers from the park!
You can watch the whole greasy report FREE on SwearNet!
The whole world is about to learn something that SwearNet fans have known for a long time: Kaitlin and Laura from Cheap Smokes have a really fucked sense of humour, but it’s fucked in the best possible way.
Holy fuck, an album. That must be a lot of work. Tell us a bit about what goes into creating a comedy album!
Kaitlin – It was definitely a challenge for us because anyone who’s seen our act knows that we are very physical comedians. So it was hard to find sketches that were mainly about the funny things we were saying…and not just Kaitlin running around as a fuckin’ pee goblin wearing a beard and a witch nose. The whole process took us over a year to complete. We had to meticulously go through every take of every track and edit and find what worked and what didn’t and have sound effects added at the exact right time etc etc. It was a lot of work which makes us really proud that it’s finally ready!
Laura – It was a lot of work but we had an amazing team. Comedy Records is pretty amazing. When we listened to our first recordings, we were a bit worried about the album. Recording a sketch album is a lot different than recording a stand-up album. With stand-up, you really just need good sound and an audience. With sketch, you have to add in a bunch of sounds and cues because there is no live audience.
What kind of material can we expect on this album? Will we hear from any of our favourite characters from your material on SwearNet.com like Heather or Jean Marie?
Kaitlin – You MAY hear from a certain Chip and Candace…and perhaps the Mom Wine characters make a bit of an appearance. On this album you can expect a lot of the same sophomoric, silly humor and zany characters that Cheap Smokes is known for. It’s just really fun and silly and sexy (but gross sexy). What else would you expect?
Drunk on Mom Wine
Laura – You can expect only political and high brow humor. There will be absolutely no fart or poop jokes. There will be no dating jokes or self deprecating humor or making fun of “Valley Girls.” Okay… I’m lying. This album doesn’t have a specific style, it’s just us… if that makes sense. Whatever we loved and thought would be good for a non visual album, we recorded it.
Are there any classic comedy albums out there that might’ve inspired or guided you to make one of your own?
Laura – Our dear friends, who are also a duo came out with an album last year based out of New York. The album Rick and Chuck (Jay and Eyton) is so hilarious you will actually have to change your pants. A lot of great Canadian comics have recorded albums recently and we though we could do the same. We looked at all our non physical material we had and said, why not?
What the fuck have you been up to since we last saw you on SwearNet.com? Could you tell us about your live show?
Kaitlin – What have we been up to? Well Laura got a sex change, so that was a huge deal. But really we’ve just been writing and performing and working. We have a project going on with The Boys and we will see where it ends up. Our live show is always very over-the-top physical, ridiculous humour. If you’re an audience member you should know you’re not safe because we may bring you up onstage and fuck with you… literally.
Kaitlin – We love those fuckers with all of our hearts! I don’t think SwearNet fans realize how hard those guys really work. Each of them is working on at least 10 different things at any moment. On top of all the work they had to do with TPB, they had to run around Halifax filming us stupid morons in sexy hot dog suits getting rickshaw rides from strange men. Nicole is a genius, Hannah and Chipper work harder than anyone I know, and Zan the sound guy was our protector and would karate chop anyone who gave us a hard time. Preston is a big old teddy bear that loves boxed wine, but he does try really hard to be a dick.
Laura – Working with all the drunk and stoned idiots at SwearNet was actually one of the best times of my life. I know that sounds lame but it really was. The first time when we went and played in the studio while the boys were on tour, we were there for an entire month. They became a family to us. Father Preston, sister Hannah, Protector Zan, cousin Chipper. One time when we were filming “Stoned Movie Reviews” Chipper got us SO high that I actually wanted to die. We were so in our heads, we couldn’t drive home we were that wrecked. I kept thinking, “What if my Dad saw me right now, he would so not be proud?” We will never smoke Chipper’s stuff ever again. Preston is SO far from a dick he’s a pussy. Kidding, he is a sweet teddy bear that never wears pants.
What’s next for Cheap Smokes?
Kaitlin – We have a lot of coals in the fire*…is that a fucking saying? We have a lot of stuff in the works that we can’t quite talk about yet. We will see what happens in the next few months. Hopefully big things. We’ve been at this comedy thing for almost a decade so hopefully someday soon I can have a bit of money and finally get that thing on my car fixed that sounds like a dying cat.
Where can your fans buy your fucking album?
Kaitlin – It’s available on iTunes as of TODAY Friday February 24th. The album is Cheap Smokes “IDIOTT’S”….and yes we meant to spell it that way, Jesus CHRIST! Please go download it now, its fuckin’ hilarious. Buy it for your grandma, she’ll love it! Thanks to SwearNet fans for all your love and support. xoxo Cheap Smokes. (Except Stomachworm….you suck).

*Editor’s note: “We have a lot of coals in the fire” is not a fucking saying.
It was a New Year’s celebration so fucking epic and liquor-soaked that Lahey and Randy are only just recovering now (Lahey had a brunch of liquorball sandwiches that seem to clear the fog).
Now you can listen FOR FUCKING FREE to the audio version of the New Year’s Eve shit-show on iTunes and Libsyn.
This episode features a pledge from Randy to eat more beef and bacon but to cut down on the size of his burger guns — high protein and low carbs. It also features the return of Marguerite, who is fucking pissed because a certain drunk-as-fuck trailer park supervisor failed to follow through on a promise he made to Marguerite when she joined the Christmas episode of the Lahey and Randy show.
But the fuckin fun don’t stop there – even more guests join the show! A Halifax radio host returns with a fierce passion, and the office dicks at SwearNet find themselves dragged in front of the camera by Lahey for a liquored sing-along!
Randy reflects on 2016 and makes some resolutions for the new year — more burger, less bun! Speaking of burgers, Randy’s Kitchen features the “New Year’s Burger” made up of holiday leftovers, with plenty of vegetables (onion rings).
Plus: a range of guests stop by – Marguerite (and she’s PISSED), Bobby Mac (and he’s FIRED UP), and the whole fucking SwearNet crew sing a few holiday tunes.
Someone’s been fucking around at the SwearNet studio and Preston is PISSED.
On the latest episode of Cheap Smokes, Preston notices that a mysterious vandal has been fucking over the studio, particularly focusing on his office. After alerting (and accusing) Mike Smith, Preston decides to review the after-hours security footage to get to the bottom of it.
We’ve all been there – you feel like you’ve been doing the same job forever, with no raise, and no appreciation. That’s how Jean Marie feels in her dead-end job at SwearNet studios, and she wants a promotion, damn it!
If Preston and company can’t see that she is an ASSet, then she’s going to show them that she’s an asset, YOU BET! In the newest episode of Cheap Smokes, Jean Marie goes above and beyond to prove that she’s the best at… mopping walls?
If you’re like most of us at SwearNet and you are unsure about what the fuck Jean Marie actually does, you can check out an earlier video which chronicles a day in her life. You still won’t have a fucking clue about her job, or if she even actually has one, but it’ll be fun to watch.
Even though it’s simply three drunk and stoned idiots talking shit, a lot work goes into the production of the podcast. Usually, it’s broadcasted from the comforts of Ricky’s kitchen, but in order to stick to a schedule (and keep Julian’s greasy sponsors happy), the Boys don’t let their busy touring schedule get in the way. They’ve podcasted from such far-flung places as Central Park in New York City, Hollywood, and fuckin’ Finland!
“We thought we were fucked to begin with,” says Preston. “Normally you secure the proper paperwork for that kind of thing, but we didn’t have the time, so we just went for it. Bright lights, a camera crew, open liquor, and Bubbles calling out to people he thought were Conan O’Brien. The Boys are used to jail, I’m not, I thought we were fucked.”
Thankfully, they made it to a place where everybody knows your name before Boston’s finest showed up.
Highs and Lows
Sometimes, the Boys travel to places where the cops just don’t give a fuck.
“Oh man, the giggle fit inAmsterdam,” recalls Chipper. “We were all so high and in the perfect mood. When Ricky started talking about the goddamn swans we all lost our shit. What you saw on camera was all real reactionary laughter. They even called me out because I couldn’t stop fuckin’ laughing off camera.”
The Boys agree — on the one-year anniversary podcast, they declared the Amsterdam episode to be the highest they’ve ever been on the podcash.
Vincent van Go Fuck Yourself
But it’s not all dope and cops — the Podcast is also an opportunity for the Boys to display their many talents.
“Anytime Ricky draws or paints is the best,” says Hannah. “There was one episode when Ricky started talking about ‘Vincent van GoPro’ and got all confused about exactly which body part he cut off, it was some weird shit.”
Ricky is not just a whiz with the paintbrush, he’s also a decent fucking chef. Or at least, he thinks so.
“I liked Ricky’s Choco-bananee-salmoken recipe, I’d like to see him make that on Master Chef,” says Tiggy. “But perhaps not his version of turducken, that was fucked.”
Podcasting Is a Safety Hazard
Though it’s been an extremely successful inaugural year of theTrailer Park Boys Podcast, it hasn’t come without its bumps and bruises.
Ricky nearly burned the studio down while trying to celebrate the one-year borntday, but that is just one slice of the danger-pepperoni. In fact, Ricky is lucky to have survived this year.
With all this momentum behind them, even the strongest shit winds can’t slow down the Trailer Park BoysPodcast. Be sure to tune into year two of this cockery! You can watch the video version by subscribing to SwearNet, or if you prefer to listen to the audio version (or maybe you’re a cheap fucker), you can listen to it on iTunes and Libsyn.
When we first met Jean Marie back in January, it was just the appetizer. Get ready for the full-fucking-course meal, because Jean Marie paid Cheap Smoke’s Laura $250 to film Jean Marie’s life, and it’s a horror story.
Jean Marie takes you on a tour of SwearNet studios, with cameos from the Boys, Preston, Chipper (stoned as FUCK), and many more SwearDicks.
But… aside from trying to blow everybody, what does Jean Marie actually do at SwearNet?!
