About the show

What About Gayle?

What About Gayle? is a fan-fictional look at the origins of America's favorite best friends, Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King. Set in 1980s Chicago, the half hour comedy follows new co-workers Oprah and Gayle as they join forces to save a news station from low ratings...or find new jobs.

Scorpion Bowl 

The Scorpion is a radio play that begs the question, can a superhero be a good feminist? What if the superhero...is a man?



It's that time of the year again! The Peoples Improv Theater is turning 15, and the NYC Sketch Fest is back to grow a wispy mustache and help celebrate!

The Peoples Improv Theater is proud to present the sixth annual NYC Sketch Fest, and we are ready to get the party started celebrating 15 years of comedy at The PIT and 6 years of bringing the best sketch comedy from around the country together in one place.  Past years have seen some of the best, most hysterical and most innovative sketch teams in the nation under one roof and this year promises to be even bigger!  So start stretching, put out two bowls of food for the cat and get ready for four days of sketch madness at the 2017 NYC Sketch Fest!
