What is Sketch Comedy?

A sketch is a short, fully scripted comedy scene (you may call these "skits" but we never do). Sketch is the same thing you see on Saturday Night Live! If you don't understand what sketch is, we invite you to attend our two free shows that kick off the festival at The DC Arts Center on Wednesday, March 20.

When and where will the festival be held?

The festival will take place at the DC Improv Comedy Club and The DC Arts Center from March 20-23, 2024. See shows here.
