Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of March 11th, 2013

Nine for Fifteen

You may not be aware, but Toronto has a fairly thriving community of comedians and comediennes. Ranging from stand-up to improv to sketch, you can find these hilarious humans peering around many a corner. Their singular intent? To make you pee yourself (figuratively of course) with laughter. There are plenty of opportunities to see these folks in action, but we thought we’d highlight one in particular. The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is happening right now and has some very impressive talent. If you enjoy laughter, laughing, side-splitting fun, beer, jokes, comedy, wit, and other related items, it’d be a favour to yourself to see what it’s all about.
