It’s our favorite time of year! Sketch Comedy Month is in full swing at The Pocket Theater, and we’re counting down the days ’til our Fund Fight fundraiser on May 27 at Annex Theatre. Spring is in the air, and that means it’s time to start accepting submissions for SketchFest Seattle 2017!
This year we’re making it our mission to be more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming. If 50% or more of your group is comprised of comedians who are LGBTQIA+, people of color, neurodivergent, disabled, and/or women, we’ll lower your submission fee from our standard $35 to $25.
This year’s SketchFest will have headlining shows featuring local and traveling sketch comedians, stand-ups, and special guest hosts on September 22 and 23 at Annex Theatre. We’ll also build up to the main event with local showcases featuring our favorite local talent in the weeks leading up to the festival.
