The 8th Annual Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival (TOsketchfest) is pleased to make the first announcement about our side-splitting lineup for 2013! TOsketchfest will host over 40 troupes from across North America, March 7-17, 2013 at The LOT and Comedy Bar with special programming at The Second City.
The Sketcherson’s Sunday Night Live will welcome an extra special host as part of TOSketchfest – the best host there is, the best host there was and the best host there ever will be – legendary wrestler Bret “The Hitman” Hart! The “Pink and Black Attack” will host Sunday Night Live on Sunday, March 17 at Comedy Bar.
An exciting addition to the TOsketchfest line-up is the All-Canadian Featured Series including the return of Dance Party of Newfoundland, the premiere of an all-new full-length show by Montreal’s Uncalled For, Toronto’s popular verbal smackdown show Rap Battlez, Winnipeg’s Hot Thespian Action and Vancouver’s Peter N Chris (reigning TOSketchfest Audience Choice Award winners).
