About This Quiz

​An example of sketch comedy at its finest, the "Baroness Von Sketch Show" debuted on CBC Television in June of 2016. Made up of four Canadian members — Carolyn Taylor, Aurora Browne, Meredith MacNeill and Jennifer Whalen — the show tackles subjects such as office politics, expectations placed on women in today's society, LGTBQ+ topics and dating in the age of the internet. Never afraid to look as silly as humanly possible, the women of the "Baroness Von Sketch Show" play characters who range from slightly ridiculous to completely over-the-top. Viewers will discover a character who solves all of her life's problems with dry shampoo and a woman obsessed with her blanket scarf. They'll also get to witness a G4 summit run entirely by women (spoiler alert: world peace has been achieved). Four seasons in, the show is being called the best Canadian sketch comedy show since "The Kids in the Hall" — a truly distinguished compliment if there ever was one. 

By answering the following questions, we'll be able to determine which member of the "Baroness Von Sketch Show" you resemble the most. Each member brings their own unique set of comedy skills to the program, and we want to find out which ones you possess as an honourary member of the troupe. As they say in episode 3 of season 3, "don't even say goodbye, just go."
