There’s an art to writing comedy minus crutches like visual aids, bad wigs and sight gags. Even in today’s age of streaming mobile video and in-dash rear-view cameras, the art of writing expert short form comedy is in high demand – on satellite radio!
The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival presents the SiriusXM Sketch Off, where 12 of Toronto’s funniest sketch troupes compete for their chance to win a comedy album produced by SiriusXM and distributed by Comedy Records. These two shows are jam packed with talent and laughs in one night, all of it recorded and broadcast by SiriusXM.
$5 gets you into BOTH SHOWS!
Come and listen to these troupes as they bring their funniest audio sketches to your ears in the 8pm show!
- British Teeth
- Templeton Philharmonic
- Vest of Friends
- Tony Ho
- Parker and Seville
- Local Drysdales
- Two Weird Ladies
- Elephant Empire
- Smells like the 80’s
Four of these troupes will be chosen by audience vote (THAT MEANS YOU!) and judges pick to perform in the 10pm show, where they will perform two more sketches, one of which will have been written THAT DAY based on a theme sent out at 9am.
The final four will have their sketches uploaded to a voting site that goes live on March 11th, 2013. After that, you have 10 days to vote — one vote per day — for your favourite troupe!
