Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival
Sketch Marks is performing in the City of the Big Shoulders, the Hog Butcher of the World. Already the world’s largest sketch comedy festival, it might as well call itself the world’s best sketch comedy festival too.
Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016 – 7 p.m., Stage 773
That’s 1225 W. Belmont Ave., in Chicago.
Milwaukee-based sketch comedy
Members of Sketch Marks include Kristin Althoff, Joel Dresang, Vince Figueroa, Lee Rowley, Becca Segal and Lindsey Walcott.
Over the years, you have seen us perform individually with such groups as Busy Bar, ComedySportz, Crouch Comedy, The Dinner Detective, ExFabula, The Faculty, Goodnight Milwaukee, Mojo Dojo, the Over Our Head Players, Retro Comedy Night, Sketch 22 and Tall Boys.
In 2013, inspired by Sketch 22, broadminded Comedy and the Milwaukee Comedy Festival, we put our silly heads together and formed a new sketch comedy troupe, the Sketch Marks. You know how funny we are with other comedy performers. Imagine us combined. Better yet, come see our shows. Bookmark this page and check back to learn about the next Sketch Marks performance.

In our first two full shows, just eight weeks apart in 2014, we performed 25 original sketches (including two choreographed song parodies) to full houses.
Since then, we have entertained at Milwaukee’s Arcade Theatre, in the Underground Collaborative and in the Farina Arena at Milwaukee’s ComedySportz.
We were back-to-back selections for the Milwaukee Comedy Festival – Wisconsin’s biggest comedy event – performing at Milwaukee’s Next Act Theatre in 2015 and 2014* along with top comedians from across the United States and Canada.
