PHILLY SKETCHFEST 2016 – THANK YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU…

philly sketch fest centered (2)After taking a day to sleep, re-hydrate, sleep and then sleep some more, we’d like to take a moment to offer our sincere gratitude and thanks to all of the performing groups from Philadelphia and across North America that participated in Philly Sketchfest 2016 and our audiences for supporting this festival at the most attended Philly Sketchfest to date! We’d also like to take the time to thank our 2016 Festival Sponsors – Philadelphia Film Society & PFS Roxy Theater, Lehigh Valley Apparel Creations, Federal Donuts, Miss Rachel’s Pantry, Ida Mae’s Bruncherie, and Uber.

Please join us as we thank them for their tireless efforts… Continue reading
