Sketch Up or Shut Up is Philadelphia’s Only Sketch Comedy Open Mic and is a FREE SHOW! 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. Please understand that we do not screen material for this show and it is first come, first serve to sign up. The sign up list will be available twenty to thirty minutes before the show at The Shubin Theater. As such, please feel free to bring as many sketches as you like but don’t hate us forever if the amount of groups necessitates only being able to perform one sketch. We will make every effort to fit in as many groups but please remember this is an open mic and we only have an hour. Please respect your fellow comedians and keep your sketches to FIVE MINUTES OR UNDER. It’s the honor system and we’d like to keep it that way as we’re all having such a great time.
Sketch Up or Shut Up was created by Meg Favreau and is hosted by Brian Kelly.
