Don Valley Girls
June 25

June 25 at 8PM | The Chamber | $10-$50

When you’ve aged out of being the Main Character what else is there to do but laugh (okay, and also cry)? Serving up weird (sometimes heartfelt) sketches, songs, and the occasional video interlude, Don Valley Girls are a mashup of Somali/Korean/Palestinian/Pakistani Canadian perspectives from women and non-binary folks. This is NOT your auntie’s sketch show. (Or maybe it is.)

Don Valley Girls are a new Toronto sketch troupe, who had their first sketch revue in April 2022 as part of Why Not Theatre’s RISER Toronto (supported by Canada Council for the Arts and the Toronto Sketch Comedy Project Fund). When they’re not busy creating and making each other laugh, they love to teach workshops to encourage fresh marginalized voices on the comedy scene.
