O Dat Dum is Canada’s only Sketch Comedy Juggernaut Super Troupe, giving a home to material too dum for anywhere else. Winners of the 2015 Sketchiest Sketch Troupe Award and the 2016 Producer’s Pick at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival.
O DAT DUM is a sketch show where comedy’s dumbest ideas have a safe haven. The audience is asked to participate in the show by shouting ‘O Dat Dum’ (either individually or as a group) whenever something particularly dumb is occurring on stage, which will be frequently.
O DAT DUM started as a show concept in an impromptu brainstorm session between sketch performers from a variety of troupes at Comedy Bar after a show at the Toronto Sketch Festival in 2014. Involved in this wide-ranging conversation were Dave Barclay and Matt Kowall (both members of Parker & Seville), Cameron Wyllie (Bitches Leave), Jeff Clark (The Weaker Vessels), Natalie Metcalfe (2 Humans) and Carson Pinch (The Sketchersons).
