About PSF

Philly Sketchfest’s (PSF) goal is to entertain audiences, support the growth of Philadelphia’s comedy community, and celebrate national and international sketch groups with unique shows, performers, and panels.  This website will serve as your direct link to all things Philly Sketchfest including times & dates of shows, performing groups and special features on all things related to sketch comedy in-and-around Philadelphia.

Philly Sketchfest was created in 2007 by Ben Maher and David Terruso & Matt Lally (Animosity Pierre). Current producers include Maher, Brian Kelly (Secret Pants), Curt Riedy (High Dramma), and Josh Higham (My First Sketch).

PSF produces a podcast showcasing the writers and performers of sketch comedy from all over the world called My First Sketch, available wherever you get your podcasts. PSF has been also home to the annual Dirtiest Sketch in Philadelphia contest created by Don Montrey (ComedySportz Philly).
