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.

Join wellness guru and possible cult leader, Dale Seever (comedian James Bewley) as he welcomes a stellar lineup of comedians, musicians, and noted experts for a cosmically-attuned variety show with a focus on the future.

Dale explores all these questions and more as he plummets through a range of possible timelines with help from his guests: The Templeton Philharmonic, razor sharp sketch comedy duo; Rose Eveleth, host of the Flash Forward podcast; Sureni Weerasekera, stand-up comedian; Comics of the Future, time traveling comedy partners; Francesca Fiorentini, comedian and journalist; playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, reading a new work; a video by Cole Kush; a visit from Dale’s ex-wife; and other surprises.
