‘A Sketch Comedy Extravaganza Eleganza’ is a queer-forward original sketch comedy revue written and performed by the best queer sketch comedians in Toronto. After being named one of the top five comedy shows of 2018 and multiple sold out performances at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and Crow’s Theatre, we are proud to present this sketch revue one final time at The Second City Toronto in partnership with Pride Toronto.
Our show features original sketches and songs by: Tricia Black (She the People, The Sketchersons), King Chiu (Not Oasis, Second City Diversity Fellowship), Monica Garrido (The Elder Project: Buddies in Bad Times, Second City Diversity Fellowship), Tom Hearn (HouseCo, The Sketchersons), Marshall Lorenzo (PanaceaTM, The Sketchersons), Selena Vyle (Nicky Nasrallah) (HouseCo, PanaceaTM), and Jillian Welsh (TourCo, Cherry Beach). The show is directed by Kirsten Rasmussen (Second City, Bloody Mary’s) and features musical direction by Ayaka Kinugawa.
‘A Sketch Comedy Extravaganza Eleganza’ was named one of the top five comedy shows of 2018 by NOW Magazine and was selected as part of the 2019 ‘Best of the Fest’ show at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival. The show has been nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards: “Best Live Ensemble” and “Best Live Production”.
Our original at run Buddies in Bad Times Theatre was selected to be funded through the 2018 Sketch Comedy Project Fund, a special project of The Pat and Tony Adams Freedom Fund for the Arts.
