Our bi-monthly sketch competition where two randomly assigned teams perform 15-minute sets while trying to sabotage each other. The first Thursday every other month at Sawubona.


Our quarterly show highlighting the best characters and monologues.


Our sketch comedy open mic is the best place to try new material, whether it’s live and in person or virtually on Zoom.
