The Sketchfest promotes live, scripted comedy in Toronto, and includes performers from Toronto and beyond.
This year’s festival includes headliners Eugene Mirman and Michael Ian Black, from Brooklyn and Chicago, respectively, both with a lot of TV exposure (Bob’s Burgers, The State…). Bruce McCulloch of Kids in the Hall represents Canadian comedy as a headliner as well.
Also included are many many young and less well known Toronto comedians who you should check out this March.
For the last sketchfest, November 2011, we profiled a lot of the sketch troupes performing, and some of them are back. Some of the shows at LOT offer audiences the opportunity to see three different comedy troupes, and others are showcases by just one. Of note is the premiere of Uncalled For’s new show on March 9th, “Ready, Set, Götterdämmerung!”
Tickets are available for individual shows or a festival pass online here.
