Sketch Cram! NYC


Once a month, we cram together UCB's top writers, performers, and students to craft an all-new sketch comedy show from scratch in a single day.

Featuring writers and performers from The Onion News Network, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and more!

Sketch Cram is all the comedy you can cram into a single show. Featuring 100% new content every month!

Based on the show originally created by Charlie Sanders and Chris Gethard.
