Beggar’s Canyon (Toronto)
Beggar’s Canyon flies down the Festival trench and fires their comedic torpedoes at a secondary exhaust port 2 meters across to detonate laughs. They’ve been in lots of other troupes, so they’re confident they can hit the target.
Hailing from Toronto, Beggar’s Canyon features multiple Canadian Comedy Award nominees Peter Hill and Ian MacIntyre. Between them they have been part of projects such as Approximately 3 Peters, Doctor Whom and The Sketchersons.
Star Trek. Batman. Ghosts. Public Radio – basically, if you get the “Beggar’s Canyon” reference, these guys will probably be right up your alley.
Ladystache is a female sketch duo from Toronto. They have a fast paced brand of comedy full of energy, bizarre characters, Bjork imitations and an occasional wolf hat. Their sketches twist, turn, offend and delight. Mustaches not included.
The Reception (Toronto)
The Reception is a Toronto-based, Post-Punk, Sketch Comedy Party on Turbo Mode. Two-parts beautiful, pleasure dream you may never escape from and one-part dance get-down at the centre of the universe, The Reception have been regularly delighting audiences for years in wondrous destinations such as New York City, Chicago and Montreal. The Reception is Jill Welsh, Taylor Davis, Brendan Hobin, Nick McKinlay, Carson Pinch and you.
“The Reception is high-paced and polished, making it very clear they are professional and serious about their sketch. An ensemble that moves like a well-oiled machine, The Reception definitely felt like the after-party their name suggests.” – Kelly Opalko (The Sketch Review, Chicago)
“The Reception perform some hilarious sketches. Winning my heart; disgusting but really funny!” – Erika Mathieu (Mobtreal.com)
“The Reception is the Future of Comedy.” – Griffin Newman (The Chris Gethard Show, Draft Day)
Elephant Empire (Toronto)
If Elephant Empire was a historical figure it would be the guy who started the French Revolution by shouting for blood at the Bastille but then slunk away when he saw he might get hurt. Decide for yourself at elephant-empire.com. Laugh. Cry. Toronto.
