Toronto Sketchfest knows that the Athol community loves comedy.  So they are offering us a great opportunity to travel to Toronto to see either “

Women Fully Clothed” or “Bruce McCulloch”.


They’re looking for a group of 30+ adventurous comedy fans in the Belleville/Prince Edward County area to book passage on The TOsketchfest County Comedy Bus on Saturday, March 3rd.  Buses will depart from central locations in Picton and Belleville, and travel to Toronto for arrival ~5:30/6pm, in time for passengers to grab a pre-show bite before one of two amazing 8pm shows:

You buy a ticket to either of the shows and they will transport you there and back!

As soon as they get 30 reservations for one of these comedy buses, we’ll issue tickets and confirm transport details.  Deadline to buy tickets is  Wednesday, February 28th!!!!
