EMPLOYEES OF THE YEAR are back, making their glorious return Montreal Sketchfest after winning Best Local Troupe at the 2018 festival, with a brand new show: Wide Awake! A Film Noir (sort of).
They’ll be performing alongside LADY MARY & THE MARQUIS VAN SHYZER, and CRYING ALONE IN THE SHOWER.
What starts out as a classic Dame and Detective mystery quickly transforms into something that we’ll bet our bottom dollar you never saw coming. If we said any more, we might just have to make worm food outta ya, see?
Employees of the Year is comprised of Ross Wegscheider and Emelia Hellman, who are a self described “shitstorm” of dance, sketch, theatre, satire, and adorableness. They have been performing across Montreal for the last five years, featured in The Sketch Republic at OFF-JFL, and their own one-hour show Libro Magico that was picked up for OFF-JFL after a sold out premier. They also wrote and created five mini episodes of a web series, that you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-xZU2IhEHk
This is their fifth (?!) Sketchfest.
