Toronto's longest-running comedy festival!

The Festival

This is Toronto’s Comedy Festival

The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is Canada’s preeminent comedy festival focusing on scripted, ensemble work.

In 2023, TOsketchfest will return in person!

From March 8-19, 2023 get ready for our 18th Annual Festival! We will return to in person events with the TOsketchfest Film Fest, and live showcases with all of the trusted sketch comedy goodness you expect from TOsketchfest each year.

TOsketchfest23 is a remarkable mashup of contemporary sketch comedy, drag, storytelling, musical comedy, and clown – all performed by unforgettable ensembles and spectacular solo acts. You’ll see stellar new material, Fringe festival favourites, JFL all stars, and spotlights on rising talent and renowned artists you know and love.

For ten days TOsketchfest will populate Bloordale to Beaconsfield at Comedy Bar and The Theatre Centre with the best sketch comedy in over 50 shows.
