Toronto Sketch Comedy Troupe Cancels Itself, Fearing That Its Own Lack of Diversity Will Embolden "White Supremacists"

A White Supremacist just emailed me: "These sad clowns don't empower me. In fact, they make me question this whole 'white supremacy' creed in the first place. What if... I've had it wrong all along?!!"

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that this "troupe" wasn't funny, and that it was canceled by audiences long before it canceled itself.

They have imaginatively named themselves "The Sketchertons" -- because they do sketches! -- so you know the prodigious talent you're dealing with here.

That's an ad for the troupe. This is one of their best bits. When they made a list of their best bits, the ones most likely to attract an audience, this checked in at #1.

Their FaceBook announcement says that they've struggled to attract "BIPOC and queer voices."

I rate that... Half true.
