Get in a Laugh of Two at The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival

"The raging Lakeview Beast" (Chicago Tribune) whose "laughs are right on track" (Chicago Sun-Times) continues to thrive with most anticipated line-up in its 16 year history. 

With a record-breaking year for submissions, SketchFest Founder Brian Posen is thrilled to announce the official line-up for the 16th Annual Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, taking place January 5 through 15, 2017, at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont.  

Fusing SketchFest veterans with fresh new faces, and local favorites with award-winning international ensembles, Chicago SketchFest is the true essence of a comedic melting pot. Since its debut in 2002, the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival has grown to a sketch comedy oasis and the largest festival of its kind in the world, attracting over 1,000 artists and 10,000 patrons annually. 

"The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival continues to redefine itself," says Posen. "There are new and interesting voices each year. Chicago SketchFest is my favorite. Every flavor of comedy under one roof. I love the 8 days of constant laughter and celebration."

At 415 Premier Apartments in Evanston, Illinois, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Friday!
