About the show

World of Hurt

World of Hurt's sketch revue "Punching Comedy Into History" features all the funny things, from time traveling Mark Wahlberg to the majestic stories of the noble fish punchers. Vikings also. There's nothing wrong with the turtle cheesecake.

Cheap Wigs

Cheap Wigs is back on The PIT stage after their sold-out debut and 3-show run this summer. Come see their latest and greatest sketches for the sketchiest fest that ever fested in NYC.

Cheap Wigs has been described right here as that feeling you get in the shower when you remember something silly and let yourself giggle. It’s also a dozen of New York’s most *noble comedians brought together for laughter explosions in your brain and underpants. Sketches + Videos + Characters

*every single member has definitely won a pulitzer prize



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!
