BandComedy

The Templeton Philharmonic are an award-winning, Canadian sketch duo comprised of Toronto writers and performers Gwynne Phillips and Briana Templeton. Together, they perform delectably surreal sketch comedy that is often peppered with hideous Edwardian dresses, stinging social commentary, and dead-pan interpretive dance.

Biography

Their original script "Wild Hearts of Suburbia" was a finalist in 2012's cut-throat “Pilot Week” competition run by Insight Productions (Top Chef Canada, Battle of the Blades). They were also featured at Second City Toronto’s “Cream of Comedy Gala” as finalists for the 2012 Tim Sims Encouragement Award.
