The 2016 London Sketch Comedy Festival

the 2014 London Sketch Comedy Festival


London SketchFest returns for its fourth annual festival on 5th & 6th November 2016 at Hackney House in Shoreditch.   

A festival celebrating the best up-and-coming writer-performers in comedy, London SketchFest is on a mission to spotlight the best young British comedic talent and bring it all to one place. From great new comedy acts that are just emerging to more established groups that are tearing up the live circuit and making a name on TV and radio.

Our award winners from the past couple years have all gone on to do great things, winning even more awards and receiving development deals for television and radio. We’re committed to continuing our support for the nation’s talent, working with them to provide an annual showcase of some of the most exciting comedy around for audience and industry alike.

Our festival line-up includes:


  • New Act Competition – a showcase of exciting, undiscovered new and unsigned acts
  • Feature Series – double-billed shows from a range of the best acts from around the UK
  • Sketch Screen – our in-festival cinema and comedy film competition
  • Sketch Scribe – a laugh out loud event featuring a host of sketches from new writers performed by a super-troupe of comedians
