Description: Sketch Up or Shut Up is Philadelphia’s Only Sketch Comedy Open Mic! All are welcome to perform sketch comedy or simply enjoy the show. This is the place for sketch comedians to work out new or in-progress material in front of an audience of their peers for notes/feedback. Whether you’re looking to have your material performed in front of an audience or simply wish to volunteer to perform for writers in need of actors this is the place for you!
Sketch Up or Shut Up runs from approx. 11:00 p.m. to midnight. We do not screen material for this show – sign-ups are first come, first served. The list will be available 20-30 minutes before showtime at The Shubin Theatre. As such, please feel free to bring as many sketches as you like but the number of groups/writers each month may necessitate everyone only being able to perform one sketch. We will make every effort to fit in as many groups as possible, but please remember this is an open mic and we only have an hour: so please respect your fellow comedians and keep your sketches to *five minutes* or less!
Sketch Up or Shut Up was created by Meg Favreau and is hosted by Brian Kelly.
