Founded in 2001, Sketchworks is Atlanta’s premier live sketch comedy company featuring some of Atlanta’s top comedic working pros. As opposed to unscripted improv, Sketchworks deals in short, written sketches and films, and celebrates comedy writers as much as comic actors. Shows can best be described as similar to SNL or MadTV, though the packed houses at our theatre near Decatur consistently proclaim it much funnier. Sketchworks also conducts classes in both writing and acting, always developing and launching the next generation of Atlanta’s funniest artists and talent.
