Kathleen Phillips and Dan Redican on Sunnyside's take on a neighbourhood in transition.
Listen16:38
The new sketch comedy show Sunnyside takes a closer look at the various species that populate the modern concrete jungle -- from roving gangs of drunk party girls to snarky bearded baristas. The often surreal show, which recently premiered on City TV, has been described as a refreshing critique of contemporary urban life. 

Actress and writer Kathleen Phillips and co-creator and co-producer Dan Redican join guest host Daniel Richler to discuss the show's "absurdist take on a neighbourhood in transition".
