Sketchworks Comedy, Atlanta’s award-winning live sketch comedy company, announced the return of their sketch comedy festival, ATL SketchFest. The 3-night event will be on September 23, 24, and 25 at the Village Theater. Audiences who attend the SketchFest festival will have the opportunity to see three different sketch comedy groups per night. Organizers will also be accepting comedy video shorts to show between live performances. ATL SketchFest will include a “Best in Show” competition where anonymous judges choose the best sketch group and video short. The winners will each receive a cash prize at the close of the last show on Saturday, September 25th. With the safe return of live performances, ATL SketchFest organizers are thrilled to bring the festival back.
“Producing the SketchFest in 2019 was hard work but a lot of fun,” Sketchworks co-owner and ATL SketchFest co-organizer, Julie Shaer, commented. “The day after the 2019 SketchFest finished, we started planning for 2020.”
“Village Theater has been the regular performance venue for Sketchworks for over 5 years now,” Troxell said. “It will be nice to have the SketchFest in a place we consider the SketchFest in a place we consider home.”
