We’re returning to the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival in early January for what will be our 3rd performance at the festival, the largest of its kind in the world!
Both our previous appearances in 2015 and 2017 received a lot of buzz and were both sold out so we’re very excited to be asked back again. Time Out Magazine singled out our 2017 performance as one of the 12 acts to see, out of all 154 performing groups. Some of the other groups singled out included TJ Miller (Silicon Valley) and Danny Pudi (Community).
They seem to really like what we do there! Winnipeg and Chicago: our two comedy homes. Scientists are still studying it, but there appears to be a link between cold winters, Chicago style architecture, and liking our comedy.
We can’t wait to perform alongside the best of the best in the world for sketch comedy, and to watch them perform and then meet them afterwards and pick their brains.
Chicago Sketch Fest is the largest sketch comedy festival in the world. It features approximately 180 groups from around the US and a few from around the world. Each year it draws crowds of 11,000 patrons over its 8 day run.
We’re performing two shows over two nights at the festival: January 11th and 12 at 8pm.
In other news, right when we get back we’re diving in to filming the pilot to our web series that has been in the works for over 5 years now. You may remember us pitching a sitcom concept to networks in Toronto in December 2012. Well we’ve adapted the sitcom into a shorter web series and we’re filming episode 1 as a proof of concept. We couldn’t be more excited to finally see something come of our work! We’ll let you know all about it once it’s ready to be seen!
