The Diddlin' Bibbles and Jovani! at Sketchfest

The Diddlin' Bibbles and Jovani! at Sketchfest

We invite you to an evening of tantrums and tunes with Jovani! And The Diddlin’ Bibbles.


JOVANI! is drama. JOVANI! is sex. JOVANI! is the name of the fashion designer that intoxicated Real Housewife Dorinda Medley screamed at Countess Luann during her post-rehab cabaret show, in an effort to remind her that she was the one who hooked her up with free dresses. That pretty much sums up this pop culture obsessed sketch duo.

THE BIBBLES are back! Or… are they BROKEN?
After taking the Toronto music scene by storm, our favourite sex-positive musical duo from Widdlywack fought like hell to protect their love from the sting of fame, but this time, one of them has gone too far. Can a powerful duet transform into a sublime three-part-harmony? Or will this steaming shit-bag of emotion burst into a musical cacophony of pain and anguish?


Get your tix online!

Jovani!
Written and Performed by Emily Richardson & Marshall Lorenzo

The Diddlin' Bibbles
Written and Performed by Lesley Robertson, Matt Shaw & Dana Puddicombe
