Tonight marks the opening night of Chicago’s SketchFest, a two week gathering of some of the best sketch comedy troupes in the country. The first SketchFest was held in January 2002 and featured 30 local sketch comedy groups. Today, SketchFest hosts over 150 groups and draws in roughly 10,000 patrons annually. The event’s home, Stage 773, is located on Chicago’s north side and contains four separate theaters, each offering visitors a unique experience. Eli’s Cheesecake is a proud sponsor of SketchFest 2013. To learn more about SketchFest or to buy tickets online, click here.
