The mandate of the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is three-fold:

  • To provide a big, public showcase for sketch comedy in Toronto,
  • To deliver relevant professional development to artists, and
  • To create opportunities for positive networking and exchange among comedic writer-performers.

We currently do this by producing the annual Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival in March (TOsketchfest), The Best of the Fest Encore Show in June, and Sketch ComAgeddon in November.

The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is a not-for-profit, charitable organization.
