The Templeton Philharmonic are a Canadian Comedy Award nominated sketch comedy duo from Toronto, Canada. Gwynne Phillips (HBO’s Sensitive Skin, PBS’s Odd Squad) and Briana Templeton (SyFy’s The Expanse, CTV’s The Beaverton) are known for their darkly surreal sketches, comedic period pieces, and manic dance sequences. They’ve picked up numerous awards for their work, including “Best Comedy Duo” at L.A. Comedy Festival, and “Producer’s Pick” at Toronto Sketchfest. They have performed at the New York Sketch Comedy Festival, JFL42, Chicago Sketchfest, and headlined The National College Comedy Festival. The two star in their original web series “Womanish” on CBC, and are contributing writers on “The Irrelevant Show” on CBC Radio-Canada.
