This year our pals at Toronto Fringe are presenting over 65 shows in four virtual series as part of the Digital Toronto Fringe Festival taking place July 21 – 31, 2021. Toronto Fringe always includes a massive comedy contingent, and the Digital Fringe is no different. Plus, you can watch from anywhere in the world! Here are the sketch comedy shows to check out this year, including TOSketchFest alum!
Chronicles of a Black Woman: A Sketch Show
Writer, creator, and actress Sandy Daley brings this ground-breaking one-woman show to the stage. Chronicles of a Black Woman: A Sketch Comedy follows the lives of 3 sistas in a modern day society, trying to make shit work. Strong comedic moments mixed with dramatic turns will have you dying with laughter, as you wipe away your tears. More info and show details here.
CRINGE is a solo sketch comedy show inspired by the most cringeworthy moments that writer and performer, Sam Roulston, just can’t shake from his brain. Most medical professionals don’t recommend re-traumatizing yourself, but he wrote this show for YOU, for the art, but mostly for the attention. More info and show details here.
Good News Toronto
Good News Toronto is a satirical news comedy featuring a roast of Doug Ford, wild puppets, animated adventures, a look into the Fringe itself, and hopefully some jokes too. It’s late night comedy with dash of chaos. More info and show details here.
One Of The Good Ones
Yaw Attuah (pictured above) has been the model minority, but now it’s time for him to speak up about his stories of racial sensitivities in order for everyone to learn and be better. One of the Good Ones is a comedic storytelling show. It’s about Yaw’s experiences at work, in his career, in his youth, and how it fits into today’s conversation about race, diversity, and inclusion. More info and show details here.
Orange Chicken: A Sketch Show
Orange Chicken is a part-live action, part-animated sketch comedy show created by a pan-Asian collective of theatre and musical artists who don’t know how to not name a show after food. Songs! Jokes! Questionable late-night orders at Fran’s! More info and show details here.
Our Exes are Dead: Vol 1
Our Exes Are Dead is a short collection of sketches from your favourite comedy duo that you’ve also never heard of. Rachelle Mazzilli and Maggie Chafe present this filmed collection of their favourite sketches for the first time ever! More info and show details here.
You Can Do It, Put Your Mask Into It!
Part political satire, part sketch show, and generous doses of hand sanitizer and dread about our planet’s future, You Can Do It, Put Your MASK Into It is a tongue-in-cheek “cure-all” for your pandemic woes. Prepare for bad impressions of politicians, creative filming solutions, and a cheesy song or two. More info and show details here.
