Sketch Off! is open to any sketch groups & character acts currently performing in the UK as we search for the country's most exciting sketch writers and performers.

The competition is open to sketch groups & character acts who must have 7 minutes of original material. Please adhere strictly to this duration

Please note, if you have sound cues you will need to bring your own tech. The lighting state is constant throughout the show. There are no blackouts between sketches.
