The Peoples Improv Theater is proud to announce the return of NYC Sketchfest 2023!
Novelty Mug Comedy
We are an NYC-based group of women and non-binary sketch comedians, forged in the year of Our Dark Lord 2020! We write and perform individually and collectively at theaters and performance spaces all over NYC. Our overall (spooky!?) game for this show is “HEALTH [S]CARE,” and all the sketches in this set explore the deeply hilarious (and horrifying!!) world of modern day healthcare/self care!
Field Trip is a Boston-Based sketch team that crafts shows to be both absurd and accessible. Taking inspiration from shows like the Birthday Boys and Portlandia, we aim to immerse audiences in our wild world of multi-part narrative sketches, high-energy nonsense and even a joke here and there. Our shows also have a tone that skews more positive over cynical. We have people leaving our shows not knowing exactly what they just saw but wanting more. We frequently perform at indie shows around Boston and Rhode Island and have most recently participated in the Portland (OR) sketch comedy festival and the Portland (ME) comedy festival.
Sketchfest is back! This is the 9th annual festival and first time back since 2019 (you know because of that pandemic thing). NYC Sketchfest is New York City’s premier sketch comedy festival and one of the nations largest. This years festival is focused on highlighting local, national, old, and new sketch teams and bring them all together again! This 4-day sketch-tacular programming that will not only include incredible sketch shows, but panel discussions, writer’s rooms, and more!
