Every hour, on the hour, performances take place in each of Stage 773's four performance spaces.

With the festival averaging 20 shows a night, over 11,000 patrons annualy brave the Chicago winter to enjoy this comedy oasis.

2017 Festival Highlights

Headliners include award-winning LA sketch comedy troupe The Cool Table featuring Kyle Moore and returning favorites Heavy Weight (LA) featuring TJ Miller and Nick Vatterott, and New York's Pop Roulette featuring SNL writer Sudi Green. Chicago SketchFest veterans The Defiant Thomas Brothers, The Cupid Players, and Rabbit Rabbit embody the spirit of the Chicago sketch comedy scene, while international ensembles put their own spin on the festival, featuring Winnipeg-based troupe Hot Thespian Action, whose SketchFest 2015 sold-out show was an instant hit; Toronto Sketch Festival "Best Group" Winner The Best of Friends; Montreal-based Hot Raw Fire; and three-time Canadian Comedy Award-winning sketch troupe from Vancouver, Peter n' Chris.
