The U.S. Sketch Comedy Championships 12th anniversary event will be held at the renowned Acme Comedy Theater in Hollywood on Nov. 15, 2017 at 8:30 P.M.
This prestigious event has over its years provided industry exposure to up and coming sketch comedy talent by filling the audience with VIP industry executives that have included A list directors and producers, talent and casting executives from all the major broadcast and cable networks, and agents and managers from top firms. Previous sketch group competition participants have landed a development deal with a legendary comedy television producer, bookings for live theater productions, a feature film development deal with a studio based director, and a guest live pre- taping performance for the studio audience of a broadcast network sketch comedy show.
Already there are confirmed VIP reservations from several producers and management companies including one production company that currently has programs on the air on top tier cable networks that will be there specifically looking for potential talent for a new possible show in development.
There will only be three competing groups accepted to compete for the coveted championship. Each competing group will have an 18 minute set to show the industry that they are the next comedy stars.
To apply to be a competing group, please send an email of interest that includes a resume for the group and a link to previous performances along with both email and phone contacts. Unedited live stage performances are given more weight but applicants may submit edited prerecorded videos as well. There is no application fee to apply.
