TOsketchfest'20 – 15th Anniversary

TOsketchfest20 Lineup Announcement

You have waited patiently and it it’s finally here! The line-up announcement for the 15th Annual Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival! That’s right, TOsketchfest is now fifteen years old – officially making us the longest running comedy festival in Toronto.

TOsketchfest will mark this milestone with 12 days of the best scripted, ensemble comedy from across North America at Crow’s Theatre, The Theatre Centre, and Comedy Bar March 4 -15, 2020. Check out the full TOsketchfest20 Lineup here.

TOsketchfest will celebrate 15 years with $15 tickets! All Festival tickets are just $15 including performances at Crow’s Theatre, Comedy Bar and The Theatre Centre. But act fast – prices go up February 15!

In this anniversary year, TOsketchfest continues to serve its primary mission – to invest in and support the development of Canadian comedic voices.

The Festival line up will include a curated mix of emerging sketch comedians, and long standing scene mainstays, including: Fringe favourites Anesti Danelis, Tita Collective, and Not Oasis; solo stars Jon Blair, Ophira Calof, Tom Hearn, and Anders Yates; and hot out of town acts including Gender? I Hardly Know Them from Edmonton, Milwaukee! from New York, Brunch from Vancouver, and Spooky Dookie from Chicago.

Sex T-Rex will embark upon a bold new journey at TOsketchfest20: performing an actual Sketch Revue on March 6 and 7 at The Theatre Centre! No continuous plot, no character development, just PURE SKETCH ACTION. Of course, you can still expect Sex T-Rex’s signature flair- stage combat, physical comedy, and heartfelt parody will be omnipresent throughout this FOR SURE A SKETCH SHOW show.

Vest of Friends will celebrate ten consecutive years at TOSketchFest20 with the silliness of four genuine friends, cramming as many jokes into each premise as possible. Come see a show that SNL alumni Garrett Morris called “perfectly executed stupidity!” at The Theatre Centre on March 12 and 13.

But wait – maybe you want to see one, two, or 15+ shows at TOsketchfest? Don’t worry – we also have a limited number of passes for just $45! This mega deal is on until February 15 – or while supplies last.
