Kenny vs. Spenny takes on Canadian Tour

Submitted by on April 28, 2014 – 8:28 pmNo Comment

kenny spennyKenny vs. Spenny is making a comeback, and Toronto is going to get a taste of Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice’s antics live.

Their Kenny vs. Spenny vs. Canada tour started in Vancouver, B.C. on the last day of March, and progressed through the prairies heading east throughout April. In May, they hit up their stomping ground in Ontario, their hometown of Toronto for May 6 and 7 dates at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and tickets are still available.

This is the tale of the lovable duo of notorious bachelors Kenny and Spenny, roommates by design, rivals by destiny. 

The comedic stylings of Kenny and Spenny on TV were one thing, but their live show is something else in a class of its own. Join the pair live for an evening of jokes, rehashings of old battles, some behind the scenes footage and a little Q&A session with the gruesome twosome.

If you’re unfamiliar with the long-running Canadian reality show that spanned six seasons and a Christmas special, it was a never-ending battle of wits, guts, cunning, and merciless triumph, in which every episode the two comrades would engage in a variety of useless competitions.kennyvsspenny_facebook_torontoThe loser of each battle was assigned a “humiliation” to be doled out by the victor – which was never a pretty sight for the unfortunate victim.

The competitions usually involved some sort of endurance of something tedious and trivial, or the tolerance of something one of the contestants absolutely despised. The odd episodes involved reasonable competitions like who could write the best song, or who could pick up the most girls.

Fans always knew the competitions were one-sided, on account of the fact that Kenny never had a problem cheating to win, and Spenny had an unrelenting moral compass that would always guide him down the righteous path. Kenny may have always won the competitions, but Spenny always won in life.

Spenny often reacted with angst and exasperation towards Kenny’s antics, which naturally would only fuel Kenny’s desire to torture his best friend that much more. In some cases, the pranks were extreme, like giving Spenny LSD, or once convincing him that he had been in contact with someone with HIV with a forged letter from the Ontario Ministry of Health.

Over the course of six seasons, they had 85 battles, of which Kenny reigned victorious by a count of 59-21-5. Luckily with their live show, everybody wins. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these Canadian cult heroes live, so don’t miss out.

If you can’t be there, then make sure to check back here for full coverage of the evening in Toronto, May 6.
