Nirvanna the Band the Show

Nirvanna the Band the Show is a Canadian mockumentary television series based on the web series Nirvana the Band the Show, created by Matt Johnson and Jay McCarrol, who play fictionalized versions of themselves. It premiered on February 2, 2017 on Viceland.


The show stars the duo as "Nirvanna the Band," two hapless lifelong best friends and roommates, who engage in a series of complex publicity stunts around their home city of Toronto in the hopes of landing a gig at the Rivoli, despite the fact that they have never actually written or recorded a single song, nor taken any other steps to get their band ready.
