The Peoples Improv Theater is proud to announce the return of NYC Sketchfest 2023!
Our team writes evergreen and observational comedy that incorporates our perspective as women and members of the LGBTQ+ community. While we all met performing stand-up comedy, we have experience in a variety of performing arts including music, dance, and theater. Additionally, various members of our group have trained at UCB, The Second City, and PIT, and have performed in the San Francisco Sketchfest, Montreal Sketchfest, and Austin Sketchfest.
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!
