For a look at this year's sketch groups at Montreal's Just For Laughs comedy fest, take a click over to IFC's Details Are Sketchy, where I contributed a few thoughts as a guest blogger today. The way my fest schedule played out, I ended up seeing so much more of British troupe Idiots of Ants than I did any of the other groups — L.A.'s The Birthday Boys, Toronto's The Imponderables, and Jordan Peele and Rebecca Drysdale as Two White Guys — that I wish I had gotten to see more than the glimpse The Sketch Show afforded them. Particularly The Birthday Boys, as several of the West Coast comics had spoken so highly of them. Just one more reason for me to start planning a California vacation in the near future.
