Troupe of the Day – CORY!

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

Today’s troupe of the day is CORY!

Don’t mess with CORY! This full-on, balls-out, fearless duo is returning to TOsketchfest after a three year hiatus, and we’re thrilled to bring them back. Both Leslie Seiler and Lauren Ash are Second City alumnae, but a CORY! show is nothing like a Second City show. CORY! takes you to darker, dirtier, riskier places.

These ladies know their way around comedy. Lauren has the distinction of being one of four performers to have graced both the Toronto and Chicago Second City stages, and her recent credits include an lead role  in the Showcase series Almost Heroes. Leslie is a four-time Canadian Comedy Award winner who can also be seen in the festival with Punch in the Box. As CORY! they were featured on the CBC Comedy Special Sketch with Kevin McDonald.

To get an idea of their general sense of humour, you could check out their recent CORY’s First Diet blog which chronicles their six-day crash diet attempt. Spoiler alert: they don’t make it to day six.

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