We – internationally renowned sketch comedy troupe Uncalled For – are bringing our latest full-length show to Toronto. And we need your help to make it happen!

We’ll be mounting a two-week run of our show Uncalled for presents: PLAYDAY MAYDAY in Toronto at the end of November. Our goal as a company has always been to bridge the gap between sketch comedy and traditional theatre, so we’re excited to be producing this run at the historic Theatre Passe-Muraille.

Producing theatre at the professional level is an expensive endeavour  The money that you generously donate to our fundraising campaign will go towards three main expenses: 

  • The rental cost of the main space at Theatre Passe Muraille for our two-week run; 
  • A proper marketing campaign, run by a publicity company, to get the word out about our show; 
  • Compensating our actors & technicians for the time and skill they’re investing in this project. 

While we are raising money through other means – we’ve applied for arts funding, we’ve secured a small grant from Sketch Comedy Project Fund, and we’re putting on regular comedy shows in Montreal and Toronto – in order to make this show as good as it can be, we need your help, your support, your encouragement, and your faith in us! Take a look at our pedigree, our accomplishments as individuals, and at the list of awesome incentives… and donate what you can! Just follow your heart. 

Thank you! We love you! 

Special thanks also to our actors Lily and Aliana, and to the wonderful Paul Aflalo for jumping in and helping us put the video together!


Risks and challenges

A substantial amount of this project will not be funded by this campaign, so we still need to sell as many tickets as possible to break even. If you're a fan of Uncalled For, help us spread the word! Send your friends, your families and your children!
