London SketchfestReturning for a third year, the London Sketchfest brings a weekend of belly laughs from unsigned sketch comedy talent to award-winning acts from across Britain to London and in 2015, Sketchfest moves to two venues in Elephant and Castle, The Cinema Museum and The Artworks, just a short walk from each other. This year's line-up includes feature acts So On and So Forth, stars of their own upcoming self-titled Radio 4 show, winners of Sketch Screen 2014 This Glorious Monster and critically acclaimed newcomers Massive Dad. While feature shows present the best acts from around the UK, competition shows present undiscovered new and unsigned acts, and sketch screen reveals the best entries for the cinema and comedy video competition. Described as "Weird, wide-ranging and whimsical" by The Telegraph at its debut, London Sketchfest has reinvigorated a sketch scene increasingly overshadowed by all-conquering stand-up megastars, and gives us all a chance to see bright young British comedic talent live and under one roof before they make it big on the small screen.
