Millennial Fresh

If the usual sketch comedy just doesn't speak to your youthful mindset, the brand new Millennial Fresh might be for you. The show will consist of a number of original comedic scenes covering a range of topics, including dating, politics, student loans, modern romance and the job market, and musical numbers!



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!
