All last week and all this week we're in the throes of the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival 2020! The 15th festival has been a showcase of some amazing talent with both new acts and returning acts. One of the returning acts is Girl Brain from Edmonton. This awesome troupe composed of Alyson Dicey, Ellie Heath and Caley Suliak wowed audiences from the mainstage of Comedy Bar on Friday and Saturday night.
I reached out to them and asked if there was any album they'd like to chat about while in town. They suggested Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk With Me, an album I was very familiar with having first heard it as part of an episode of This American Life.
Go give the album a listen and if you're a real keener like me check out the This American Life episode as well as the movie adaptation and the special. Feel the full Sleepwalk With Me Experience!
Episode 28 - The Episode where we enjoy a delicious brunch (From the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival)
The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is underway and Jason had the pleasure of sitting down with artists during a brunch gathering of sketch comedians. We talk with Carson Pinch about his show Carson Fears Fear Itself, Cam Wyllie about Cam Wyllie & Jon Plester Presents Fruit Cart Bonanza (and another show that we distinctly did not talk about because that's secret and we don't talk about secrets here) as well as the troupe Girl Brain consisting of Caley Suliak, Alyson Dicey and Ellie Heath. Much yummy food, zesty coffee and good conversation was consumed.
