* AIR FARCE BIDS A ROLLICKING ADIEU TO 2011 IN A NEW YEAR’S DAY SPECIAL, SUNDAY, JANUARY 1, 2012 AT 8:00 PM *
There’s only one thing that could possibly postpone Air Farce’s annual year-end New Year’s Eve special – and, yes, it’s hockey. Audiences will have to wait twenty-four hours for Air Farce’s yearly take on the foibles and figures of the year gone by, because AIR FARCE NOT THE NEW YEAR'S EVE SPECIAL will air on CBC Television New Year’s Day, Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 8:00 PM (8:30 PM NL). But the wait will be worth it!
Air Farce stars Don Ferguson, Luba Goy, Craig Lauzon, Alan Park, and Penelope Corrin welcome “Combat Hospital” co-star Arnold Pinnock into the regular cast. They’re joined by a stellar guest line-up – Adam Beach, star of CBC-TV’s upcoming “Arctic Air,” “Battle of the Blades” champ Tessa Bonhomme, “Dragons’ Den” denizen Kevin O’Leary and his “Lang and O’Leary Exchange” co-star, Amanda Lang.
Also on board will be Green Party leader Elizabeth May fighting to occupy Parliament, CBC's own Ron MacLean, Lorne Cardinal from “Corner Gas,” wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, plus the Canadian World Junior Hockey Team.

“2011 was a year of transition,” says Don Ferguson, “and we’re really happy to be back with a new special. There’s no shortage of people and events to send-up, in fact trying to condense it all into one hour is our biggest challenge! We’ve nabbed some great guests to help us and we’ve got comedy surprises galore.”
