Description


In the last year and a half, the Baroness Von Sketch Show has been called the “best thing to come out of Canada since Ryan Gosling,” “Canada’s answer to Amy Schumer” and the “funniest Canadian sketch show since Kids In The Hall.” Yet the Baronesses have created something wholly their own with a distinct cult following that includes teenage guys, young moms, millennial women and middle-aged men.

Throughout two seasons they’ve been on air, the foursome has deftly satirized everyday life: the way moms say hello, the politics of work husbands and work wives, being the last table called to the buffet at a wedding. Their sketches often start with a mundane scenario before evolving into the absurd. With razor-sharp wit and an outwardly feminist, queer-positive perspective, the second season was ground breaking TV.

Join us at the season premiere of the Women of Influence Evening Series as we sit down with two of the four creators and stars of the series - Aurora Browne and Jenn Whalen – as they riff on their breakthrough year and how they’ve helped bring CBC back to its comedy glory.
