Sketch Off! 2018

LST Sketch Off logo - 160x160.jpgFollowing the ongoing success of the New Comedian of the Year competition & last year's Old Comedian competition, Leicester Square Theatre and the Museum of Comedy are now showcasing the UK's best up and coming sketch artists, and it's into its third year!

Sketch Off! is open to any sketch groups or character comedians currently performing in the UK as we search for the country's most exciting sketch writers and performers. The top 6 qualifiers from heats at the Museum of Comedy will compete in the grand final in Leicester Square Theatre's Main House for the £500 prize & their own comedy showcase. Runner up prize £300.
