Gavin Crawford’s Wild West is a comedic television special that stars Gavin Crawford as six distinct characters, each representing a different aspect of the society of the Canadian province of Alberta, shot in a mockumentary format.

 

The characters include Katherine Adams, a pompous socialite in Calgary organizing a charity fundraiser; Lyle Carlyle-Chang, a gay cattle rancher in Cochrane; Donald Demchuck, a newly elected member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta from Edmonton; Jessica Jones, an Australian expatriate working as a massage therapist in Banff; Trevor Valgardson, a surly teenager in Taber who believes that he’s a vampire; and Conrad Whitehead, a trucker in Fort McMurray.

Gavin’s unique blend of comedy and pathos brings these characters vividly to life in a hilarious and strangely honest portrait of the “new west”.
