Austin Sketch Fest
There hasn’t been a comedy festival in Austin for days now, and if you’re looking to fill the comedy fest-shaped hole in your soul, The Austin Sketch Fest (which bills itself as “Austin’s Only Festival”) is here to help. Started in 2010 as a way to celebrate scripted comedy in Austin and to bring together talented sketch performers from our city and from around the country, the Sketch Fest has steadily grown. Now in its third year, the Fest is bigger than ever, bringing together dozens of performers to deliver the funny for five straight days.
The festival will bring together local sketch troupes such as Your Terrific Neighbors and Stag Comedy along with several national acts and headliners Paul F. Thompkins and Delicious Moments.
May 23 – 29
