    July 19th and 20th!

    We are very excited for this year’s sketch comedy festival. 5 troupes are coming in from around the WORLD (that’s right, one troupe’s from Canada, eh?) to compete American Idol style for our judges – Shadowbox Live’s Julie Klein, Fox28’s Johnny DiLoretto and original SNL member Garrett Morris.

    Day 1 – each troupe gets 15 minutes to show their stuff and then get feedback from the judges. The audience selects the best sketch from each troupe. BillWho? rounds out the evening with some great rock n’ roll.

    Day 2 – The best sketches are put together in a “Best of the Fest” show. Shadowbox will also get a chance to do our thang, including a couple sketches with Garrett. As always, our band BillWho? will rock it out as well. At the end of the night, the judges will announce the winning troupe.

    Don’t miss your chance to see some of these great comedy ensemble’s (including last year’s winner and local troupe – Sketch By Number)

    Day two of the Sketch Comedy Festival will be packed with laughs
    By: Anne

    I went to see the first night of Shadowbox Live’s Sketch Comedy Festival and it was a great experience. Now in its third year, the Sketch Comedy Festival is a chance for performers from around the nation to hone their craft in front of a large, live audience and three judges – Johnny DiLoretto of Fox 28, Julie Klein of Shadowbox Live, and Garret Morris, an original cast member of SNL. On Day One, the audience gets to vote on their favorite sketch from each troupe and the judges offer criticism, praise and advice. Day Two brings you the favorite sketches (Act One) and a show by Shadowbox Live with performances by Garret Morris (Act Two). After seeing what the five troupes brought to the table, I can say with confidence, you are going to love Day Two.

    Walker, was great seeing you and Anne last night. This is by far my favorite sketch fest we’ve done. These guys are really, really funny and we’re putting them all into a Monty Python tribute sketch tonight. I believe we still have a few seats left so if anyone’s looking for something last minute I guarantee you’ll have fun!
