Toronto Sketchfest Troupe Profile: Kerpatty

To Sketch Fest

The Toronto Sketch Comedy Fest is next week, and because so much of the festival happens on Ossington, we are introducing you to as many of the troupes as we can via our Sketchfest Troupe Profiles.

Kerpatty! is a duo from Chicago: Pat Dwyer and Erin Pallesen. We posted a video below so you can get a sneak preview before their shows at Comedy Bar on November 10 at 9PM and November 11 at 7PM. They obliged us by answering our profile questions:

How did you get involved with the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival?

We have been wanting to take Kerpatty! beyond the U.S. borders for a while, so we jumped on the chance to apply for the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival.  We feel exceptionally lucky to be able to take part in such a great Festival.

What other troupe’s show at this year’s Festival do you most want to see?

We’ve been looking forward to seeing the Haircut and Imponderables‘ shows.  We haven’t seen Haircut since their last participation in the Chicago Sketchfest, and we haven’t seen the Imponderables perform since we all did the TBS Just for Laughs Festival together.

Why should come to see your show?

Besides the fact that we are one of the only groups at this year’s Festival that hail from Chicago, we’re really nice people.  Our show is a fun mix of playful and irreverent.  If you’re lucky, you may even walk out with a high five.

What is your favorite place in Ossington?  If you haven’t been to Ossington, where do you most want to go?

We’ve never been to Ossington before, but we just Googled the crap out of it.  Dakota’s is going to be a must stop.  The bar stools are barrels.  YOU GET TO SIT IN BARRELS!!!!
