The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival will celebrate it’s 10th Anniversary this year with over 40 sketch troupes from across North America .  Headliners include “SNL’s” Kate McKinnon, comedy duo Pajama Men, and CBC’s The Irrelevant Show.

TOsketchfest will also feature the Sketchrospective Series, celebrating some of the festival’s favourite troupes from the first ten years. The series will spotlight some of the hottest troupes on the scene right now, like Vest of Friends, Tony Ho, The Sketchersons, and Get Some, as well as troupes “from the vault” whose fans will be thrilled by a reunion including Accidental Company, The Somethingorothers, Boiled Wieners, The Williamson Playboys, and The Dance Party of Newfoundland.

The winner of the TOsketchfest Best of the Fest Award will receive a television development deal with Bruce McCulloch of Kids in the Hall, and TOsketchfest, in partnership with Accent Entertainment (“Young Drunk Punk,” “Take This Waltz”). This award will see McCulloch personally announce the winner at TOsketchfest’s closing award show on Sunday, March 15th at The Theatre Centre.

The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival will run from March 5-15, 2015. For a full listing of shows and links to buy tickets, click here.
