Please keep in mind that this festival, the first of it's kind in Florida, is dedicated to the art of Sketch Comedy. This festival is NOT an Improv Festival. There's plenty of those around the country, and they are great.
But at CFL Sketch, we strive to bring the finest in written comedic sketch material to the Central Florida stage, and request that those groups and individuals that perform both sketch and improvisation feature only their sketch comedy material during this festival. Performers should be willing and able to provide written technical scripts of their material at least one week prior to the performance as requested.
