TOsketchfest21 – The Toronot Sketch Comedy Festival – Online

TOsketchfest21 – Same Festival, Different Look

The 15th Annual TOsketchfest in March 2020 was cut short due to this new thing called COVID-19. Since then a LOT has changed in the comedy scene (and the whole world) as we know it. Therefore TOsketchfest will not be able to hold the Festival as per usual in 2021.

So now what?! It’s 2020 – we’re throwing out the playbook and bringing you the best sketch comedy next March in our own new way.

In March 2021 get ready for TOsketchfest21 – Screen Time Edition.

We’re gearing up for an online Festival mashing up all your favourite TOsketchfest ingredients: the TOsketchfest Film Fest, Learning & Fun Professional Development series, and numerous sketch comedy performance screenings by a phenomenal lineup of acts from across North America… and beyond!

PLUS we’re adding to the recipe with a dynamic roster of “shot live” stage productions, shot-from-home sketches, shows from satellite stage parnters, short comedy films, all kinds of post-show hangs and goofy fun ways to get your TOsketchfest on.

Streaming Revenue to Artists

And here’s the best part – in this most challenging time, streaming revenue will go to comedy creators!
