Beggar’s Canyon are a charming two-man sketch troupe who delight in delivering fun, clever scenes that spoof pop culture and all its franchise forms.
Hailing from Toronto, Beggar’s Canyon features Peter Hill and Ian MacIntyre, whose creative friendship began in the Second City Conservatory in 2004. Together, as part of the Canadian Comedy Award Nominated “Approximately 3 Peters” (2005-2013) and as “Beggar’s Canyon” (2013-2017, 2019-??), Peter & Ian have made nerd jokes on stages for over 15 years, having played together at 13 TOSketchfests, 2 Montreal Sketchfests, 2 Chicago Sketchfests, a sparsely attended JFL Toronto show, a couple of gigs in London, and there was that thing in Orillia. They had fun doing it, and they didn’t make any money.
Both Pete & Ian were also part of the founding cast of the Canadian Comedy Award nominated Doctor Who improv spoof “Doctor Whom”. And Ian was a member of the celebrated Toronto sketch troupe “The Sketchersons”.
Their work has been inspired by SNL, Ghostbusters, Kids in the Hall, and franchises like Star Trek, Buffy, Doctor Who, and anything else that leads people to cosplay.
Currently, Ian is a working TV writer, and Pete is a working TV executive.
