The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is facing unprecedented challenges. Following a difficult 2019 season, and cuts to a vital provincial funding program, COVID-19 erupted half way through our 2020 festival. This devastating combination of events now presents a significant threat to the future of Toronto's longest running comedy festival, and one of Canada's only charities dedicated to Canadian comedic talent ... we cannot quit!
Canada, we need our comedians
In March of 2020 TOsketchfest celebrated its 15th anniversary with a festival that was on pace for record-breaking attendance before being derailed by COVID-19. Please help us get to 2021, and support the NEXT fifteen years of The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival.
TOsketchfest is an incubator for Canadian comedy; a unique charity with a mandate to invest in and cultivate Canadian comedic voices.
We deliver on this mandate by producing performance showcases like The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival and Comedy Country; creating touring opportunities; publishing comedy recordings; offering professional development and industry networking opportunities to comedians; and by direct funding for comedy projects.
In 2020, make your gift to PROJECT: FIFTEEN FORWARD!
