About the Show

Fast paced and irreverent, BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW celebrates the absurd, mines the embarrassing and satirizes our daily lives. This all-female, single-camera comedy series takes a fresh look at our navel-gazing, contemporary culture. Shot entirely on location, BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW is an insightful, emotionally grounded series that offers a witty look at everyday concerns. From marriage equality to screen addiction, Airbnbs to ultrasounds, this satirical sketch show captures the banalities and absurdities of modern life.

Season one of the series was nominated for five Canadian Screen Awards and took home three including Best Variety or Sketch Comedy Program or Series, Best Writing in a Variety or Sketch Comedy Program or Series and Best Picture Editing in a Variety or Sketch Comedy Program or Series.

Drawing on 16 years of comedy experience and multiple collaborations, from The Second City Mainstage, to This Hour Has 22 Minutes, to indie improv favourite Wand Portal — BARONESS features the award-winning talents of: Carolyn Taylor (Portrait of a Serial Monogamist), Meredith MacNeill (Peepshow / Man Stroke Woman), Aurora Browne (New Born Moms), and Jennifer Whalen (InSecurity).

The foursome has returned as writers, stars and executive producers of season three airing in 2018 on CBC.
