On January 20, 2022, however, major changes were announced, with U.S. shows postponed and Canadian shows cancelled:

Due to COVID, we’re rescheduling our American February Letterkenny Live shows to April and early May. See below for the new schedule. All tickets will be honoured for new dates, and refunds will be available at the point of purchase. Despite all efforts, the Canadian tour dates have been cancelled due to local government restrictions concerning COVID-19 and scheduling issues. We will reschedule as soon as we can. All tickets for the previously announced Canadian dates are valid for refunds where originally purchased.

Reception[]

Reviews of the live show have been somewhat mixed. Naturally, critics who enjoy Letterkenny the television show have written positively about the show, while those who find it vulgar have written negatively. Taylor Young Millage of The Algonquin Times, the student newspaper of Algonquin College, reported of the Ottawa show that the routines were "received by thunderous applause and cheers from an eager crowd" (Algonquin Times). In contrast, J.P. Squire of the Kelowna Daily Courier dismissied as "R-rated, offensive, revolting, distasteful, foul-mouthed, meant to offend anyone and everyone" and something that appealed only to Millenials (Penticton Herald).

Rebecca Cohn, writing for HalifaxBloggers.ca, thoroughly enjoyed the show, but commented on somewhat thin material. Much of the content was recycled from earlier seasons, and with the lack of supporting cast members, the 90-minute performance was propped up by the standup routines by Wilson and Forward (HalifaxBloggers.ca). A Reddit thread on the Moncton show praised the standup acts and the adaptation of the material to the locale, but was similarly disappointed in the rehashed material.
