Tragedy plus time… plus tequila.

Dead Parents Society is a dark sketch comedy revue created by a group of comedians who each lost a parent at a young age and directed by award-winning director Kirsten Rasmussen.

Losing a parent is always hard. Losing a parent when all your peers are constantly complaining about how their mom calls them too often is brutal. But the experience of navigating grief, in a society that teaches us to put sadness away into tiny little drawers, taught us that the aftermath of tragedy can be funny AF. Dead Parents Society is a sketch comedy show with heart about love and loss and mortality.

Dead Parents Society is:
Shohana Sharmin (Not Oasis)
Anne McMaster (Not Oasis)
Carolyne Das (The Kweendom)
Jackie Twomey (TwoSon)
King Chiu (A Sketch Comedy Extravaganza Eleganza)

Directed by: Kirsten Rasmussen (The Second City, A Sketch Comedy Extravaganza Eleganza, 2019 Canadian Comedy Awards).
