Air Farce New Year’s Eve special airs December 31

From a media release:


On December 31st, AIR FARCE leaks the long-lost Rob Ford video. Taking a crack at the biggest stories of 2013, AIR FARCE turns on Toronto’s troubled mayor, who sings about his year of bluster, blunders, and Blurred Lines in a brand-new edition of Canada’s favourite New Year’s Eve party … and CBC’s highest-rated comedy special.

That’s right, AIR FARCE NEW YEAR’S EVE returns to CBC Television on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 at 8:00 PM (8:30 NT) starring Don Ferguson, Luba Goy, Craig Lauzon, Alan Park, Penelope Corrin, and Arnold Pinnock, and joining in the fun are some of the biggest names of 2013.

The world’s most famous astronaut, Chris Hadfield, gets serenaded by David Bowie; tennis superstar Milos Raonic serves up some laughs against NDP leader Thomas Mulcair; award-winning singer-songwriter Serena Ryder uses the latest tech gadget to meet her biggest fan; and, making a triumphant return to CBC, Steve Smith brings his legendary handyman, Red Green, back for a special appearance.

We also have opera diva Measha Brueggergosman squaring off against Miley Cyrus in a Wrecking Ball Battle; P.J. Stock (Hockey Night in Canada, Battle of the Blades) grilling Russian president Vladimir Putin about the Sochi Olympics; comedian Pat Thornton channelling Mike Duffy in a Hunger Games parody starring the disgraced Senate trio; Calgary’s Naheed Nenshi proving why he’s Canada’s favourite mayor; and a cameo from Lloyd Robertson, answering the viral musical question, “What Does the Fox Say?”

Meanwhile, Quebec premier Pauline Marois’ controversial Charter of Values gets a fashion makeover, Justin Trudeau rolls up to his new headquarters, the news gets some unhelpful assistance from a sign language interpreter, and Will and Kate’s royal nanny search leads to a shortlist of crazy candidates.

It’s an all-new hour capped off by the annual dropping of AIR FARCE’S own F-Bomb on the most annoying targets of 2013. Tune in to find out who fans have chosen for the biggest splat of the season.
