Each day leading up to the 2013 Festival, the TOsketchfest Blog will feature one of our 40+ awesome comedy troupes.
Today’s troupe of the day is Hot Thespian Action.
Hot Thespian Action is a collective of super-hilarious sketch performers and University of Winnipeg Theatre Alumni; Shannon Guile, Jacqueline Loewen, Garth Merkeley, Ryan Miller and Jane Testar. HTA has been gracing the stage at such festivals as the Winnipeg Fringe and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival as well as the airwaves of CBC Radio for over seven years now! They were nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award in the Category of “Best Sketch Comedy Troupe” back-to-back years in 2011 and 2012.
Rumor on the street Hot Thespian Action is hoping to bring their high theatricality and sharp wit with them in a big leap to television. They’ve spent the last year writing, pitching and producing a TV pilot for a half hour comedy series. So be sure to catch them live on stage before they become big stars of the small screen!
