SketchFest NYC’s Fifth Anniversary is done! Thanks for coming out for all the sold out, standing room only shows, and we’ll see you next year. In the meantime, check out what some people are saying about this year’s fest:
THE DECIDER – NEW YORK
While laughing to the point of exhaustion at the five-year-old comedy festival—which took place last weekend at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre—a cumulative portrait of humanity as something wholly ridiculous began to take shape.
THE COMEDY CENTRAL INSIDER
If you didn’t attend Sketchfest, I am going to pray that you don’t kick yourself too hard and too fast, thereby causing your foot to explode. You’re going to need that foot for walking to Sketchfest next year.
Tons of memorable lines, many great performances, some really bright lights.
THE COMIC’S COMIC
Everyone is hungry for laughs this year, and cue the rest of this metaphor, because the fifth annual edition of Sketchfest NYC certainly delivered with a healthy appetite (Zoinks!) of fun times, served up with a side of…you know what I’m trying to say, right?
This was certainly the biggest year yet for the
festival, with special performances including The College Humor Show, The Kids in the Hall’s Kevin McDonald, The Whitest Kids U’ Know, various video-based groups, and many new and returning stars of the ever-growing sketch comedy scene. Shows were sold out and standing-room only…
