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.
