Troupe of the Day – Approximately 3 Peters

Each day leading up to the 2011 Festival, the TOsketchfest Blog will feature one of our 40+ awesome comedy troupes.

Today’s troupe is Approximately 3 Peters!

Pete, Peter and Ian: Approximately 3 Peters. This veteran Toronto troupe will be performing in TOsketchfest for the sixth time, meaning they’ve only missed one festival. This troupe has some serious staying power.

A3P describe their show as “sketch comedy for the nerd in all of us.” And that is just about as perfect a description as I’ve ever heard. It’s high-reference comedy with lots of pop culture (and geek culture) fun, but it remains accessible because this trio is ridiculously charming and know how to write a just-plain-funny scene.

The threesome met at the Second City Training Centre and in their six year career have performed at Just For Laughs, earned a Canadian Comedy Award nomination and toured to festivals at home and abroad.

Fun fact: Peter Hill is the Associate Producer of TOsketchfest. So I kinda have to say nice things about his troupe.  But I honestly mean the nice things I say. I like them even though I hate Dr. Who.

Check out their troupe profile  to see when they are playing, and to grab your tickets.
