Sketch Comedy Lab

Do you have a sketch that you want feedback on? Do you want to see a staged reading of your sketch? Sign up for a Writers Lab session and join us for a table read where you can receive feedback on your funny script. Following participation in a Writers Lab session, there will be a deadline for submitting your revised sketch for the Sketch Comedy Lab show. This show is a staged reading where actors perform the sketches with scripts in hand with light blocking and no props.

Sketch Comedy Lab FAQ 

Any guidelines for the script I submit? 

Guidelines for sketch submissions are as follows: 

    • Sketches should be no longer than six (6) pages. 
    • Sketches should be written for the stage (rather than for filming) to allow for ease of staging. 
    • Completed drafts of sketches will get the most out of this process. 
    • Groups may submit a script but one representative must be identified to attend the Writers Lab and oversee the edits.
    • Any scripts that contain jokes or content that go against Arcade’s values or inclusivity statement will not be considered for participation.
