Tom & Erica are two grown-up children who present a fully charged, punched up, high octane sketch show that will leave people excited for more. With habits of touching on the messier side of life, they enjoy taking the mishaps and screw-ups and spinning them into a hilarious turn of events. Tom & Erica produce quick, snappy, “in your face” comedy with no holds barred!
Tom & Erica are an award winning sketch troupe (Best Ensemble: Fundy Fringe Festival 2017) based in Toronto. When they met in 2015, they immediately bonded over the failures of their “Plan A’s” (to be successful) so together they resorted to Plan B – writing sketch comedy. Beginning in an eight-person sketch troupe, Tom and Erica craved more attention and eventually split form the group. From there, a duo was born. After only nine months of writing and working together, the two were thrilled to be accepted to take on their first season of festivals together, with appearances at North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival 2017, Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival 2017, and Montréal Sketch Comedy Festival 2017. They participated in the East Coast treasure of a festival, the Fundy Fringe, where they took home their first award as a duo. In the summer of 2017, Tom and Erica were both accepted into the Canadian Comedy Award Winning sketch troupe, The Sketchersons, and have been performing every week at Comedy Bar’s flagship show, Sunday Night Live ever since. They don’t mean to brag, but their Plan B has definitely become their Plan A.
