Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie
are a Canadian comedy group from Edmonton
. Childhood friends Wes Borg and Joe Bird met actress Cathleen Rootsaert at a weekly Theatre Sports comedy jam to form the initial group. Later, Neil Grahn was recruited. This foursome was the company that made the Trolls famous.
The Trolls initially did sketch comedy, often on risqué or controversial subjects, along with humorous songs. One of their songs, "The Toronto Song
" (which is often incorrectly attributed to The Arrogant Worms
), makes fun of Canada’s regional rivalries by insulting the city of Toronto
and eventually most of the rest of the country. The Trolls have also composed musical parodies of historical events such as the War of 1812
, and Canada's recent division of Nunavut
from the previous Northwest Territories - opening "We'll keep Canada... and you can have Nunavut!" (pronouncing it "None-of-it").Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie. Steaming Pile of Skit.
The Trolls briefly had a television show on CBC Television
, but this received mixed reviews and only lasted five episodes. Geeky topics like computers and Star Wars
play a prominent role in the group's self-released album The Geek Album 2.0
The Trolls' last full lineup consisted of Wes Borg
, Joe Bird
and musician Jan Randall
. Borg and former member Neil Grahn
hosted The Geek Show
which aired on Canadian Learning......
