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 the Queer Comedy Collective
What can you expect from Canada’s first and only queer sketch troupe? They promise to be a breath of fresh air on Toronto’s sketch-comedy scene. That means no homophobic jokes but all the internalized homophobia a Queer could want! The Queer Comedy Collective is a high-calibre collection of Canadian acting and comedy talent.
QCC is composed of Darryl Dinn, Andrya Duff, Susan Fischer, Robert Keller and Lindy Zucker, all of whom have very impressive backgrounds in the performing arts scene here in Toronto, including regular performances around town and a special run at this year’s Pride Festival.
FUN FACT: QCC member Susan Fischer is the creator of the inimitable Evelyn Reese character, a fave at the Toronto Fringe Festival, and Darryl Dinn is the guy in the sponge towel costume in that ad. You know the one.
Check out their troupe profile to find out when they are playing, and to grab your tickets.
