Catch CBC talent at TOsketchfest:
Kirsten Rasmussen is an award winning performer known for her bigger than life characters and desperate need to please. Kirsten, Get Some Friends is filled with pathetic lovable losers who are tired of their lonely, single existence and want more than anything to make a friend. Perhaps it will be you, but probably not, probably she will hire some other fantastically talented Toronto sketch comedians to show up and act like her friends for a few sketches. That's definitely what's going to happen.
