With the clock ticking down on SketchFest (tickets still available here) and the excitement building I just wanted to let everyone know about the exciting week we have planned next week. It will be our celebration of Canadian comedy! As well as our episode with four astounding Canadian talents recording this Saturday about an American show that is steeped in Canadian comedy history we will also be releasing 5 days of interviews where we sat with the Canadian Juno nominees.
So, tune into the podcast Monday for our hot from the stage Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival episode. This will practically be fresh from the stage and straight to your ears! Then Tuesday through Saturday we'll be releasing interviews with Chanty Marostica, Dave Merheje, Debra DiGiovanni, Mayce Galoni and Pat Thornton each nominees for the 2019 Best Comedy Album Juno!
Tune in Sunday to the Junos and see who wins but listen to them talk about their craft and their album ahead of time on the podcast and celebrate Canadian comedy with us.
It's with great excitement we announce we are returning to the stage for a live podcast recording! Jason will be sitting down at 5:00 PM on March the 9th with an all star panel including Robin Duke of SCTV and Saturday Night Live fame, Kerri Donaldson and Allie Entwistle of the sketch duo Brunch and Brandon Hackett from Second City and the Sketchersons. Along with Matt Ardill they discuss the 1976 Saturday Night Live cast recording taken from the first season of the storied sketch comedy television programme.
Listen to the album and send us your questions for a chance to include them in this show.
Tickets are on sale now from the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival! We hope to see you there!
