‘Baroness Von Sketch Show’ Is the Best Sketch Show on American TV, and It Was Made by Four Canadian Women Over Forty

‘Baroness Von Sketch Show’ Is the Best Sketch Show on American TV, and It Was Made by Four Canadian Women Over Forty
For too long, American sketch comedy has been so dominated by “Saturday Night Live” that any other attempts at the form have seemed futile. The trick to not competing directly with the NBC behemoth seems to be to addressing a niche audience that is sorely underserved by the mainstream, such as Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele,” IFC’s “Portlandia,” and now, the brilliant “Baroness Von Sketch Show,” also on IFC. The network bought the series from the CBC, and has been airing the first two seasons for American audiences who are hungry for something different.

Now in the middle of its IFC run, “Baroness Von Sketch Show” is written and performed by Aurora Browne, Meredith MacNeill, Carolyn Taylor, and Jennifer Whalen. Browne, Taylor, and Whalen met at Second City in Toronto, and MacNeill is a classically trained actor who came to comedy after studying at Rada. While the show has a decidedly woman-centric bent,

Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox and More Speak Out on Trump’s Lift of Bathroom Protections for Trans Students

Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox and More Speak Out on Trump’s Lift of Bathroom Protections for Trans Students
After President Donald Trump withdrew guidelines issued to public schools in defense of transgender rights on Wednesday, celebrities took to social media to sound off against the motion.

The protection, set by former President Barack Obama in May 2016, allowed students to choose which bathroom and locker room to use based on their gender identity. Gender identity, Obama’s administration said, is a civil rights and equality issue.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a press briefing Tuesday that Trump believes the issue should be left to the states to decide.
