Thank you!

Here’s a HUGE thank you to all the performers, writers, technicians, staff, bartenders, interns and audience members who helped to make the New York City Sketch Festival an amazing success.

I am constantly humbled by the generosity and talent of all the hilarious artists that grace the stage, and this year was no different.  Keep making great work, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
