Each day leading up (and during) to the 2011 Festival, the TOsketchfest Blog will feature one of our 40+ awesome comedy troupes.
Today’s troupe of the day is British Teeth.
Earlier this week, British Teeth became only the second sketch troupe to win the coveted Tim Sims Encouragement Award. This prestigious honor is bestowed upon the hottest new comedic talent on the scene in Toronto. The award is named after the late Tim Sims and was presented during Cream of Comedy gala at The Second City.
I had the honor of being one of the judges for this year’s award, and while the competition was fierce, British Teeth earned full marks for their sharp wit, dense dialogue, intense character work and of course, hilarity.
Fun Fact: Among their biggest fans are the likes of Air Farce dame, Luba Goy and fashion icon, Jeanne Beker! Maybe you’ll see them at the show?
Their meteoric rise continues TONIGHT at Comedy Bar.
