SketchFest Seattle 2013 was a rousing success! We are so pleased to have brought you a fantastic festival for 2013, and we hope you enjoyed it as well. We’re taking the rest of the year off to gather ourselves and reflect upon the past year. We’re constantly trying to improve the festival, so if you have any input on how we can make SketchFest a better experience for YOU, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
In the meantime, enjoy your fall and winter, and we’ll see you in 2014!

Sketchfest is giving Bumbershoot a taste of Seattle sketch comedy this year! We’re highlighting all the performers in this space all month long to give you a special inside glimpse into the who’s who of our Bumbershoot acts. This week we talk with the woman named “Best Comedian” by Seattle Weekly’s 2013 “Best of Seattle” and our esteemed host for the Bumbershoot show: Jen Seaman! Read more
Sketchfest is infiltrating Bumbershoot this year and injecting a dose of Seattle sketch comedy! We’ll be highlighting the selected performers in this space all month long so you can get a sneak peak before they take the stage on August 31! We’re kicking off our BumberBlog feature with local darlings Drop the Root Beer and Run! We recently sat down with Matt Hatfield, Zak Nelson, Bailey Freeman, and Matt Olson (Caitlin Obom couldn’t be bothered) to pick their brain about performing, writing, and rehearsing sketch comedy.

Calling all Seattle Sketch Comedy groups! We’re looking for videos of your sketches to share on Facebook while we help promote the scene (and you)! The whole idea behind Sketchfest started with a simple love of comedy. That’s why we like to use our Facebook page as a place to share some of our favorite funny videos with all our fans. But anyone can put up old SNL highlights. We want a Seattle flair!
That’s where you come in. Send us links to your videos, be they produced video sketches or just taped performances. We’ll share our faves on Facebook and link back to your group whenever we can. Just keep it simple:
- Group Name
- Sketch Name (if applicable)
- Link to sketch (our spam filters will not like you if you try to send an actual file, sorry)
- Your web page (or Twitter, or Facebook, whatever you use so people can find you when they like what they see)
Email them to Randall and we’ll get to posting promptly! Just in case you’re the type to worry about these things, you’re not surrendering any rights or ownership or whatever. We just want to share your videos and spread the word about Seattle Sketch Comedy!
