Hockey is Canada’s pastime as much as American baseball.

With the hockey culture embedded in Canada, Letterkenny’s hockey boys are one of the most hilarious characters streaming from this Canadian show.

Although Letterkenny is a big hit in Canada, it has grown in popularity on this side of the border. Already in its ninth season, people discover the smart quick-witted humor that makes one laugh out loud at the ridiculousness, randomness, and off-the-wall conversations from the small Canadian town.

Here’s the synopsis of the ninth season:

Letterkenny kicks off post-fight with Dierks (Tyler Hynes), and the Hicks, Skids, and Hockey Players attend an American Buck and Dow. Katy (Michelle Mylett) takes her scorched earth dating strategy back to Letterkenny and Gail (Lisa Codrington) gets some action of her own. Meanwhile, the Hockey Players learn about Judaism and the whole town gets really into sleepover activities like movies, board games, and girl talk. Then, a competing restaurant opens in Letterkenny and Tanis (Tiio Horn) starts her own energy drink.

Jared Keeso leads the cast as a straight-faced country farmer, who has a particular view of the world. The rest of the cast includes Nathan Dales, Michelle Mylett, K. Trevor Wilson, Dylan Playfair, Andrew Herr, Tyler Johnston, Evan Stern, Jacob Tierney, and Lisa Codrington. The series is created by Keeso and Tierney.
