START YOUR NEW YEAR'S EVE CELEBRATIONS WITH AIR FARCE ON CBC!
MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2018 | 8:00 PM

AIR FARCE, one of the most acclaimed homegrown comedy troupes, is celebrating its landmark 45th anniversary skewering the biggest news stories, events, people, and pop culture phenomena of the year with its longstanding year-end ritual AIR FARCE NEW YEAR’S EVE, premiering Monday, December 31, 2018 at 8:00 PM (8:30 NT) on CBC, with an encore broadcast later the same evening at 12:10 AM (12:40 NT).

Join founding troupers Don Ferguson and Luba Goy, longtime cast members Jessica Holmes and Craig Lauzon, and recent recruits Darryl Hinds, Isabel Kanaan, and Chris Wilson, along with this year’s very special guests: comedian and cannabis rights activist Tommy Chong; actress Lauren Lee Smith, star of CBC’s Frankie Drake Mysteries; and hockey champion Natalie Spooner, the first woman in hockey history to claim the gold medal at the Olympic Winter Games and the Clarkson Cup in the same year … plus special appearances from Lisa Michelle Cornelius, Nigel Downer, and Kevin Vidal.

Join us as we look back at the year that was and takes aim at climate change, the fallout of the #MeToo movement, Brexit, the Trans Mountain Pipeline, the legalization of marijuana and the Queen welcoming a new royal great-grandchild. Black Panther battles America’s latest threat – extreme racism – and PM Justin Trudeau is #sorrynotsorry in a special musical tribute set to Maroon 5 chart-topper Girls Like You. And, of course, to cap off the special, we roll out the F-BOMB on the top five most irritating targets of 2018.
