Peculiar Playground

You're sitting on a swing set and you feel a push. You turn around to discover Cinderella wearing a dress made of sewer rats. You must have wandered away from your safe place, and found Peculiar Playground. Join us for a strange and whimsical trek into a sketch show that blends fantasy, reality and art to create a world you've both feared and hoped for. Peculiar Playground is directed by Chris Aurillio, and is the illegitimate hell child of artist Launa Eddy and actress Bri Ross.

Eulogies! Underdogs! and unlikely heroes! Teen drama! Feminism! New York-based team Just Karen has it all and brings the laughs.



It's that time of the year again! The Peoples Improv Theater is turning 15, and the NYC Sketch Fest is back to grow a wispy mustache and help celebrate!

The Peoples Improv Theater is proud to present the sixth annual NYC Sketch Fest, and we are ready to get the party started celebrating 15 years of comedy at The PIT and 6 years of bringing the best sketch comedy from around the country together in one place.  Past years have seen some of the best, most hysterical and most innovative sketch teams in the nation under one roof and this year promises to be even bigger!  So start stretching, put out two bowls of food for the cat and get ready for four days of sketch madness at the 2017 NYC Sketch Fest!
