TOsketchfest returns this March for another year, taking over venues across this city and packing them full of funny, talented people. One of those people is my friend Laura, who makes up one half of Two Weird Ladies. This critically acclaimed sketch duo (their Fringe show was named one of the best of 2012) has several appearances scheduled for TOsketchfest.
The first takes place on the festival’s opening night, Thursday, March 6, at the Lower Ossington Theatre. In addition to Two Weird Ladies, Toronto’s LadyBusiness will also be performing, as well Chicago musical sketch group, Cupid Players. Tickets are just $15.
Then it’s off to The Comedy Bar on Thursday, March 13, for a show with Calgary’s Kaboom Hooray and local act Rulers of the Universe. Again, tickets are just $15
The following night, it’s another date with The Comedy Bar though this time Laura and her partner Mandy will be part of Teh Internets Quiz Show.
The pair are also appearing in two Cabaret Series shows. On Friday, March 7, they’ll perform in the Best Crime Sketch show and then on Sunday, March 16, they’ll appear one last time as part of the festival’s Best Closer show. Both of these dates will also take place at the Comedy Bar and more details should be up on TOsketchfest’s site soon.
I will be attending the LOT show as it’s within walking distance of my house and I am lazy. I haven’t seen Two Weird Ladies perform in awhile so I’m looking forward to seeing some new-to-me material and laughing my ass off.
