    • Synopsis
    • On the eve of the biggest dirt bike competition of the year, alpha underdog, working class hero and utterly “unique human” Donnie Dumphy cashes his welfare cheque, tours the sketchiest regions of town, loses the love of his life Brenda, almost drowns, performs at the biggest party in town and sleeps with his social worker.

      Starring an up and coming cast of new Canadian comedy talent including; Leon Parsons, Dan Bochart, Gina Squires and Susan Kent and featuring such comedy legends as Cathy Jones, Mary Walsh, Andy Jones, Andrew Younghusband and Rick Mercer, How To Be Deadly is a hero’s Journey with a Newfoundland twist because on the east coast you are only as good as your last story.
