About the Show
Welcome to the absurdist world of TALLBOYZ, a group of young, diverse comedians whose fun, silly antics range from a competition over who is whose best friend to a casual trip to the afterlife. The TALLBOYZ consist of Tim, Guled, Franco, and Vance, alternating between playing heightened versions of themselves and sliding into cartoonish sketches about friendship, politics, bro culture and everyday life. A mission to Mars gone wrong. A secret that could derail a boy band. An airplane bathroom attendant? Over the course of the show, the Boyz face everything from grammar-induced rap beefs to big life revelations, all with the same hilarious, upbeat demeanour.
