Who doesn't like bacon?
SketchFest Seattle, the first ever and longest running festival of its type, brings another hilarious conglomeration of sketch comedy from all over North America with SketchFest 2011! (October 6th-8th). This will be the lucky 13th festival, and we’re bringing acts from LA, Vancouver B.C., Chicago, and the exotic climes of Grand Rapids MI. Three days, five shows, fifteen groups, and one comedy film festival. It’s like comedy Christmas: you don’t know what you’re going to get… but you’re pretty darn sure it won’t be a sweater!
Thursday 10/6 - 7:00 p.m. – Opening night Smorgasbord/Comedy Video Contest
This is our opening night SketchFest Smorgasbord. From this buffet you will have the opportunity to sample more sketch comedy than you ever thought possible. Every single local group in the festival will be offering up a teaser taste to whet your comedy palate in this feast with a special, desert showcase from Seattle sketch legends, Disgruntled Bit Players. You will be drooling over the remaining four shows, planning the next courses of your comedy meal.
…But that's not all! We'll also be doing our annual comedy film festival, where you, the audience, get to choose what movie deserves our prize of 10,000 Cents! Also, this year we'll be giving out an additional 10,000 cents to the winner of our Celebrity Juried Award!
