Live the Dream with Sketchies II

By Mark Day

Comedy Programs Manager

Calling all comedy troupes, sketch commandos and improv teams -- Sketchies is back! Our sketch comedy contest blew up big in 2007, and Sketchies II promises to be even better, with a new creative challenge on the table and a stack of cash to be won. This year's winner will take home $25,000 in cash and $15,000 in video production gear.

You can check out all the details of this year's contest on our Sketchies II channel page: how to enter, what you can win and the deadlines you simply can't miss. If you love to make comedy videos, this is your chance to shine. And it doesn't hurt to have a bit of a competitive streak, because the winner of all that cash is going to have to survive the first round of voting, then make a second video for the final Sketchies II showdown. Last year's contest drew over 5,000 entries and saw many talented video makers rise to the challenge.

Sketchies veterans Lisa Nova and last year's winners, Awkward Pictures, are set to kick off the program and get the comedy rolling. If you need a little extra inspiration, check out last year's winning video:

Think you can do better? Then show the world, and you could end up living your big-bucks comedy dreams.
