Comedy Concierge

It’s natural to feel overwhelmed by the huge variety of acts on the TOsketchfest calendar. With so much on offer, our box office staff are asked one question more than any other, “What should I see?”

We’ve put together a little cheat sheet for you to help you along.  But to get started, we have a question for YOU…

What kind of comedy do you like?

Fan Comedy

There are fans, and then there are FANS (but only for franchises worthy of devotees like you). For you, only the highest reference-level will cut it.

Something Different

Do you often find you’re the only one laughing? There are lots of you out there in left field. Perhaps you like things like Tim & Eric, Sacha Baron Cohen, The Eric Andre Show, Alan Partridge, Maria Bamford, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, or Wondershozen. You’re in luck! We’ve got some off-kilter comedy that’ll turn your crank too!
