Bringing the best comedic talent in Milwaukee together to create an original sketch comedy show in just 22 hours – it’s Sketch 22!
How does it work? The night before the show, 10 groups of writers get randomly assigned topics for 10 comedy sketches. The next morning, the writers present the scripts and ten directors randomly select which sketch and which actors they’ll direct. Just 22 hours after the writers get their topics, the sketches are performed live in a one-time show!
