The human ego is fragile and often ugly, as is demonstrated by Cream of Comedy-nominated sketch troupe The Weaker Vessels in their latest show Public Displays of Narcissism, now playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival.

The Weaker Vessels consists of five members: Lance Byrd, Jeff Clark, Nadine Djoury, Matt McCready and Colin Sharpe. Together they form a tight comedic unit, offering sketches that range from thoughtful and relatable to twisted, surreal and downright gross.

Opening with a series of monologues delivered by self-obsessed characters wearing reflective mirrored masks, the 60-minute show touches on awkward first dates, dirty bedroom talk, stubborn TTC riders, and a crazy French Canadian supply teacher (performed brilliantly by Djoury) to mention just a few of the hilarious bits.

The Weaker Vessels: Public Displays of Narcissism runs until July 11 at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Visit for more information and to buy tickets.
