The Toronto comedy duo TwoSon has never before performed in Winnipeg. Our loss.
Devon Henderson and Jackie Twomey brought their polished sketch comedy to the fringe with a 45-minute selection of their pieces that typically offer bizarre twists, such as two women on the deck of the sinking Titanic discussing at length the blueberry scones. Their best bits include Twomey acting as a sullen teenager, slouching, rolling her eyes and irritating her mother with sarcastic disdain.
Their biography cites gigs in eight large Canadian and U.S. cities, a track record that has honed astute comedic timing and intuitive chemistry.
At one point, Henderson directly addressed the audience: "You don’t know us and you have no reason to like us." That assessment will change with TwoSon’s inaugural visit to the fringe. Winnipeggers who see them will like them.

From the Fringe program:
TwoSon has performed comedy in Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Detroit, and DC. They are five-time selections at Toronto Sketchfest and headlined Sketchfest Seattle.
Devon and Jackie also perform at Second City, Bad Dog Theatre and JFL Solo Showcase. Now they're bringing a brand-new 45 minutes of neuroses, absurdity and pop culture to Winnipeg.
