The Face of Furry Creek invites you into a small mountain community on the brink of bankruptcy as they hold a tourism contest in this original comedy series by Mark Kenneth Woods (Deb and Sisi, House of Venus Show). Five citizens are chosen to compete to become The Face of Furry Creek bringing out both the crazy and the creative, as Furry Creek is swept up in their own homegrown reality show.

Parodying every reality hit from “Housewives” to “Dance Moms”, each week the hilariously eccentric contestants (all brilliantly played by Mark Kenneth Woods, Michael Venus, Amy Goodmurphy and Ryan Steele) are faced with the task of creating various digital media. These digital creations are posted on the series website where the public can vote for their favourites.

And the stakes are high! With the winner receiving a large cash prize, these five financially challenged candidates compete in a hilarious cycle of lies, seduction and manipulation on their way to winning “The Face of Furry Creek.”

So tune in and enjoy the competition, the vlogs and the social network faux pas. Watch our five desperate contestants lie, cheat, brag, and steal to win it all.

The Face of Furry Creek - Season 2%

The Face of Furry Creek – Season 2%

The Face of Furry Creek is back in Season 2% (named so after someone’s favourite drink!). The tourists are leaving Furry Creek in droves so Channel 12 announces a brand new contest and five determined citizens enter to compete to be “the face” of their town’s newest tourism campaign in the second season of the hit comedy series by Mark Kenneth Woods. With old favourites and plenty of new faces in town, 5 candidates compete, lie and cheat their way to becoming the new “Face of Furry Creek”.

The second season promises even more laughs as Mark Kenneth Woods plays an impressive 8 characters and Michael Venus, Amy Goodmurphy and Ryan Steele (Amazing Race Canada) all return in multiple roles (and genders!). The new season includes a musical episode, a parody of Duck Dynasty‘s “freedom of speech” fiasco and a plotline mirroring Toronto mayor Rob Ford’s antics!

In each television episode, the fictional contestants are again asked to create various videos that are then posted on our new media companion project www.faceoffurrycreek.com Each week the audience will have access to brand new, website-exclusive videos and bonus material that they have seen the characters work towards in the television series. All for free.

The stakes are even higher this year! With the winner receiving a large cash prize, the new crop of candidates compete in a hilarious cycle of lies, seduction and manipulation on their way to winning “The Face of Furry Creek.”

So tune in and enjoy the latest competition, the online videos and the social network faux pas. Watch our desperate contestants lie, cheat, brag, and steal to win it all.

Mark Kenneth Woods
Writer, Producer, Director, Actor (Mario, Deborah, Guy, Greg, Yoshi)

profile_markMark, or MKW as he is affectionately known, is to blame for creating the demented world of Furry Creek. He also bosses everyone else around but they still love the money him. Mark is a comedy writer, actor, producer, director and occasional reporter whose work has been broadcast on television in dozens of countries and has screened in over 250 festivals and galleries around the world. Not too shabby. He also holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto and a master’s degree from York University. Also not too shabby. But Mark is probably best known as the creator and star of 3 seasons of the TV series The House of Venus Show  (2005-2009), the world’s first LGBT sketch comedy show, his short series Pimp & Ho and his feature film Deb and Sisi (2008). When he’s not doing every job imaginable on The Face of Furry Creek, Mark enjoys a jug of wine every now and always and is a travel nut. He is currently saving up for a cultural tour of Saskatoon’s best rave parties for the 30+ crowd with Ryan Steele. www.markkennethwoods.com

 

Michael Venus
Associate Producer, Actor (Brenda, Sisi, Chad, Liz)

profile_michael2Michael is a multi-disciplinary artist and founder of the collective The House of Venus. Over the past 20 years, Michael has revolutionized the underground scene through parties, events and art “happenings”, whatever those are. Heavily influenced by Warhol, Venus continues to create film, music, video and visual art with political and social change in mind. And then there’s The Face of Furry Creek. Michael met Mark Kenneth Woods in 2000 and the two have been making “people” (i.e. themselves) laugh ever since. Venus co-produced and starred in Woods’ series The House of Venus Show and feature film Deb and Sisi and their collaborative efforts have continued with Furry Creek. But “he” is also famous for being a “she”. Michael’s drag alter ego Miss Cotton is a fairy godmother of glamour (and narcissism!). But our crew likes Michael best we he leaves the glamour behind. Cue Sisiwww.houseofvenus.com

profile_amyAmy is a raging tomboy who possessed a bowl cut and a rat tail as a child and begged people to call her Ricky. On set we call her Bryan #2. Sorry lady. Amy met Ryan Steele 6 years ago and they’ve never stopped putting each other down since. Often times in front of audiences in their hilarious live comedy show The Ryan and Amy Show or as part of the cast of YTV’s The Funny Pit. Amy loves comedy and cites Molly Shannon as her number 1 inspiration. She’d like to point out that she drives a used 2008 Ford Escape that has about 8 trillion Kms/Miles on it so yep, she’s doing well for herself. And with all the money she made from The Face of Furry Creek, she’ll finally be able to fulfill her dream of owning that “new car smell”. In the form of a “new car” scented air freshener from the dollar store of course. www.ryanandamyshow.com

 

Ryan Steele

He started in comedy professionally very early on in his life, at the age of 29, and has worked very hard ever since. He is still a bartender though so… but he met Amy Goodmurphy in 2007 bartending so that’s cool. The newly minted pals created The Ryan and Amy Show together, a regular live sketch comedy show, and have written, directed and acted in over 100 comedy shorts since! So Ryan is clearly both prolific and desperate for attention. He’s the guy behind youtube sensations Busy Drag QueenWoof and Adult Ravers. You may have also seen him with Amy in the YTV series The Funny Pit. Ryan vows never to stop making comedy videos and longs for the day when he can travel the world doing what he loves.

profile_ryanBryan #1, as we like to call him, is a sketch comedian who loves reality television and “gurl’s nights” with Mark Kenneth Woods where they share secrets and dye each other’s beards. He started in comedy professionally very early on in his life, at the age of 29, and has worked very hard ever since. He met Amy Goodmurphy in 2007 bar tending and the newly minted pals created The Ryan and Amy Show together, a regular live sketch comedy show, and have written, directed and acted in over 100 comedy shorts since! So Ryan is clearly both prolific and desperate for attention. He’s the guy behind youtube sensations Busy Drag QueenWoof and Adult Ravers. You may have also seen him on a little show called The Amazing Race Canada.
