The challenge began last evening when the team was given their “challenge pack” consisting of a genre, a character, a prop and a line of dialogue that must be included in the film. We’re going to keep our challenge pack close to the chest for now (spoilers!).
Although the film will be completed by tomorrow night, we won’t be able to show you the film or tell you much of anything about it until the competition closes at the end of November. Stay tuned here or follow us on social media (FB, TW, IG) to see the results!

After performing to sold out audiences at the 2017 Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, they are thrilled to be back in Toronto and excited to be a part of the Toronto Fringe Festival for the very first time together, with this comedy revue about the end of the world.
