‘Baroness Von Sketch Show’ is a sketch comedy which has a decidedly female perspective. It is written by a staff that is primarily female and is performed by an all-female primary cast (with both female and male supporting players). They tackle a variety of subjects, most of it dealing with current cultural topics of everyday life, but from a female point of view. Unlike most sketch comedy shows of today, the sketches in this show are in a rapid-fire mode, insofar that they are relatively short – none lasting more than approximately five minutes, with most being in the one to two minute range – and are filmed largely on location, rather than on a sound stage or in a studio in front a live audience.
The show has been created by Carolyn Taylor, Meredith Macneill, Aurora Browne, and Jennifer Whalen. The directors are Aleysa Young, Yael Staav, Jordan Canning, and Jeremy Lalonde. It airs on CBC Television, and on IFC in the USA, and first premiered on June 14, 2016. IFC has described the show, saying, “Fast-paced and irreverent, the female-driven sketch comedy series celebrates the absurd and mines the embarrassing, offering a fresh, witty take on relatable moments such as crying at work, waiting in airport security lines, dealing with gossip-obsessed co-workers, co-parenting and more.”
