Organizers have just unveiled the lineup for the 2017 edition of the festival, and topping the bill are song and dance duo the Rumoli Brothers and viral musical comedians Flo & Joan.

There will also be a revival of 2016 Fringe production Dance Animal, a performance from slam poet comedy duo Definition of Knowledge, the staging of a live late night talk show dubbed Tonight's the Night! with Dave Barclay, and a show from Justin Miller's drag alter-ego Pearle Harbour.
Solo sketch performers like Marty Topps, Jon Blair and Full Time Idiot (Kirsten Rasmussen) are on the bill too, alongside "super troupes" like #1 Very Good Boys, S&P and Soul Decision. Last year's TOsketchfest award winners like the Flirty Boys, O Dat Dum and Vest of Friends will also be returning for the 2017 instalment of the comedy event.
The shows will take place at a variety of venues across Toronto, including the Theatre Centre, Comedy Bar and the Drake Underground. Tickets are currently on sale, and will run you $16 to $20 for single events or $80 for a full festival pass.
