Sketch writers in this category can submit up to 2 different sketches.

This category is for existing sketch groups/troupes with rehearsed sketches. No scripts allowed. Each sketch team submits two sketches and will be competing as a group. Groups will be judged on comedic quality, acting, richness of characters, sketch memorability and overall performance. **Sketches should be under 10 minutes** Live Comments from Murphy will be held until all sketches in this category are performed.
