November 8th to 13th the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is taking over venues across the city. Every day we’ll post our top few picks so you don’t have to work too hard to find that perfect show. For the full TSCF schedule, check out their website.
FALCON POWDER – Lower Ossington Theatre 8pm
Falcon Powder are the Boston Bruins of TOsketchfest in that they are the returning champions – they won Best of the Fest in 2010 – and Kurt Smeaton’s moustache bears a striking resemblance to that of Tim Thomas. I’ve never seen these guys and they have next to nothing on the internet save a poorly titled, cryptic, joke-less YouTube video promoting this show – BUT – you should probably check them out because they come highly recommended. And Kurt Smeaton’s twitter feed is pretty good.
PICNICFACE – The Second City 11pm
Picnicface! Live! It’s happening! They’re on TV and they’ve got a movie and a book and now you can see them in person for real. True success in Canadian entertainment comes but once in a blue moon so see these headliners for yourself.
