Please keep in mind that this festival, the only 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 area, and request that those groups and individuals that perform both sketch and improvisation feature only their sketch comedy material in their submissions to this online festival.
