Washington DC's Sketch Comedy Festival

23 comedy troupes from all over the US and Canada perform in DC for four days only.

March 20 – 23, 2024

At the DC Improv and The DC Arts Center

Thank you for attending the inaugural DC Sketchfest! We hope you’ve had a wonderful time. It was such a pleasure to have so many talented and funny people come to the District to celebrate sketch comedy with all of us.

Bad Medicine, Rails Comedy and the greater DC sketch community would like to thank the DC Improv Comedy Club and The DC Arts Center for hosting all the shows. Thank you to the Blaguard and St. Arnold's on Jefferson for hosting all the after parties.

We would also like to thank all our sponsors especially Nerd Nite DC and Lime for their generous support.

And lastly, a special thank you to all our donors and friends of the fest. Support like that from friends, family, and the local stand up and improv community was wonderful. DC is secretly a comedy powerhouse and we’re so happy to be a part of it.
