The Templeton Philharmonic

Delectably surreal sketch comedy.

The Templeton Philharmonic ("Best Duo", L.A. Comedy Festival) are a sketch comedy duo comprised of Gwynne Phillips and Briana Templeton. Together, they write and perform original, surreal sketch comedy that is often peppered with stinging social commentary, and dead-pan interpretive dance. They have appeared at the New York, Chicago, and Toronto Sketch Comedy Festivals, and won the "Steam Whistle Producer's Pick Award" at Toronto Sketchfest. In 2014, they were nominated for "Best Sketch Troupe" at the Canadian Comedy Awards.

Check out their new web series, "Womanish", on CBC Punchline.

Have you heard? The Templeton Philharmonic have a new audio series with Audible called None of Our Business.

What's the weirdest conversation you've ever overheard while eavesdropping? Was it hilarious? Disturbing? None of Our Business is a new Audible production based on stories of eavesdropping, hosted by comedians Gwynne Phillips and Briana Templeton, who often perform together as award-winning sketch comedy duo The Templeton Philharmonic (voted "Best Duo" at the LA Comedy Festival, and "Producer's Pick" at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival). This new original audio series debuts on July 24th in Canada and July 31st, exclusively on Audible.

In each episode, Templeton and Phillips interview a celebrity guest and ask them about their lives, their work, and the most fascinating, alarming, or just plain weird conversations they've overheard. Then, the hosts transform this eavesdropping moment into a comedic sketch based on the story. The result? Audio pandemonium.

Join None of Our Business as they interview fascinating people, and transport listeners to all kinds of places with their sketches - from old timey Brooklyn, to a xylophone concert, to outer space, and beyond! The thing that connects these hilarious scenes is human curiosity and the joy of eavesdropping on strangers... even though it's really none of our business.

The season features stories with Reggie Watts (Comedy Bang! Bang!), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Anna Sale (WNYC's Sex, Death & Money), Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), Scott Thompson (The Kids In The Hall), Josh Fadem (Twin Peaks), Carolyn Taylor (Baroness Von Sketch Show), Kurt Braunohler (The Big Sick), Sam Richardson (VEEP) and astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield.
