We’ve aged out of being the Main Character, and it kinda really sucks. So we wrote a sketch show about it because why cry when you can cry while you laugh! … on stage, in front of everyone. We’re a mashup of Somali/Korean/Palestinian/Pakistani Canadian perspectives from women and non-binary folks, and boy, our sketches don’t hold back any punches. You may even experience a punch or two to the gut… with laughter! Come for the snarky blurb, stay for the weird (sometimes heartfelt) sketches and occasional musical interlude. This is NOT your auntie’s sketch show. (Or maybe it is.) (
