Toronto Sketchfest features a lot of silly things, but Definition of Knowledge is bringing something universally known for being the opposite of silly: slam poetry! Bryn Pottie and Hannan Younis bring their visceral verses, hard-hitting act-outs, and dopest-ly extended riffs to Comedy Bar in a show that Mooney on Theatre raved “ends racism”. Will their low-tech, high-energy approach to slam comedy wake you up? Or will they only make themselves laugh with their half baked 90s rap references? Either option: equally likely!
Dang Dumb mixes the comedic voices of this diverse cast into a show that leaves no topic off limits. Satire, eccentric characters, absurd situations, musical numbers, relatable observations, one-liners, and self-referential sketches all tightly woven together with callbacks keep audiences on the edge of the seats with anticipation and rolling on the ground with laughter. At the centre of it all is their group dynamic that is playful and loving, like siblings fighting on a family holiday.
