Each day leading up to the 2011 Festival, the TOsketchfest Blog will feature one of our 40+ awesome comedy troupes.
Today’s troupe is The Hooligans!
This sprawling gang of teenage sketch wunderkinds were the winners of the 2011 Sketch ComAgeddon Championship and as such they won the right to kick of TOsketchfest in style…they will be making their festival debut on opening night.
The Hooligans are fourteen high school and college students who have been working together under the direction of comedy vets Kristine Marchese and Marco Timpano for four years. This Brampton-area troupe performs both improv and sketch, but at the festival you’ll see their fast-paced, energetic sketch show.
Fun fact: The Hooligans are all under the age of 19, but have performed 9 revues in 4 years in venues like The Second City, Comedy Bar and The Rose Theatre.
Check out their troupe profile to see when they are playing, and to grab your tickets.
