The Trolls initially did sketch comedy, often on risqué or controversial subjects, along with humorous songs. One of their songs, The Toronto Song (which is often incorrectly attributed to The Arrogant Worms), makes fun of Canada’s regional rivalries by insulting the city of Toronto and eventually most of the rest of the country. The Trolls have also composed musical parodies of historical events such as the War of 1812, and Canada's recent division of the Nunavut province from the previous Northwestern territory - opining "We'll keep Canada... and you can have Nunavut!" (pronouncing it "None-of-it").
The Trolls briefly had a television show on the CBC Television, but this received mixed reviews and only lasted five episodes. . "Geeky" topics like computers and Star Wars play a prominent role in the group's self-released album The Geek Album 2.0. "Troll" is itself a "geeky" term.
