TOsketchfest is thrilled to announce This is That as the first Headliner Series act of the 2016 Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival (March 3-13, 2016). This is That Live debuted at TOsketchfest in 2011, and has since gone on to tour throughout Canada. We’re absolutely thrilled to present their return appearance, and first in Toronto since that time.
Pat Kelly and Peter Oldring offer audiences an intimate look behind the studio door of CBC’s award winning satirical radio show, This Is That. With a healthy mix of character interviews and mockumentary stories, this live send up of public radio doesn’t just report the news it makes it up! Nothing is off limits–politics, business, culture, justice, science –if it’s relevant to Canadians, This Is That finds a getresponse alternative way to fabricate a story. If you have ever been curious how just two guys provide all the voices for this completely improvised radio comedy, well this is the show for you.bui
