No one was surprised when this was announced Letterkenny It will get a substring. What was even more surprising is that chorsey He’ll focus on Notorious #69 – and inevitably expose him. Episode 1 was given the task of finally revealing Shoresy’s face and she totally accomplished that goal in the best possible way. This would be using the bathroom during a team meeting while chirping at his coach and belittling his teammates.
Hockey has played a big role in Letterkenny Since the early days of the series. In any Canadian rural town in any part of the country, local hockey teams are at the heart of the social dynamic of the entire community. As such, this cultural phenomenon had to play a major role in the series. Hockey stories have been told primarily through the eye of Reilly and Jonesy, although there are other characters included in Letterkenny’s hockey elite ranks, such as Shoresy.
In his first appearance in Season 1, Episode 4, Chorsey is brought in as a new member of the hockey team alongside Riley and Johnny in an effort to win a championship. Of course they didn’t because their team was terrible. But Schorsey has proven himself to be a hockey player. He’s also proven to be the biggest jerk on the team and possibly the dirtiest player in the game. Schorsey spends most of his time on the toilet and talks about the epic-level litter of Riley and Jonesy, mostly about their mothers.
He quickly became a fan-favorite character thanks to his constant verbal attacks on anyone who crossed his path. Part of the character’s allure was the fact that his face was always veiled and hidden. Fans knew he played Jared Keso, the series’ co-founder and actor who plays Wayne, but Chorsey’s face was never revealed. He had to do just that.
Season one, episode one revealed after it was made clear that Schorsey left Letterkenny behind to play hockey at Sudbury. Their team was absolute crap. The coach was trying to hold a team meeting to get them back on track after a devastating loss. Unfortunately for him, Schorsey was busy using the bathroom after the match and was tweeting about it all the time. In the end, the coach left the locker room and Schorsey walked out of the booth, revealing his face on TV for the first time.
This was the perfect reveal as fans could have requested. Shoresy talking trash in the face of his trainer and co-workers from the relative safety of a bathroom stall is quite old for the character. It was the most common status quo for Shoresy, so it made perfect sense to divulge this site. Also, verbally utterly decimated that boss, which was on par with No. 69.
Letterkenny He has an incredibly devoted fan base and Shoresy was definitely a defining character for the series. At the same time, there are no guarantees that the results based on it will work. But giving the character a proper introduction after years of working in visual ambiguity was a major first step on that path. Plus, it’s always nice to see Shoresy tweeting someone out of the room.
