Baroness Von Sketch Show

(46 x ½-hour sketch comedy series)

The most awarded sketch comedy show in Canadian history, Baroness is fast-paced and irreverent and hilarious series featuring four women who happen to be some of the best comedians around.  The Baroness von Sketch Show is a single-camera, shot on location half-hour that offers witty and insightful takes on everyday life. From the pretentiousness of a paragraph-long coffee order to office and sexual politics, this satirical sketch show has been a critical darling and a water cooler favorite.
