Event description
42 Comedians will have 24 Hours to create six different 15 minute sketch comedy revues! A yearly event 24 hours in the making!

About this Event

On Friday September 28th, six directors will be given six performers each. In 24 Hours, these 42 performers will craft six different sketch revues!

Some of these performers come from a strong sketch and comedy background. Some dabble more comedically on the side of improv or standup. Some are dramatic actors or playwrights. One is a high school drama teacher. What happens when a group of strangers have a day to create a 15 minute piece of comedic art? Come and see!
