Sketch Jam

  • Dojo Comedy 3503 Georgia Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20010 United States (map)

Looking to get your comedy writing in front of an audience? Every month, Dojo Comedy hosts The Sketch Jam, an open mic for sketch comedy.

Are you in a sketch group? Sign up and try out your material in front of a crowd.

Are you a writer? Bring enough copies of your sketch, and we'll help you find performers from the audience to act in it.

Are you a performer? Perform in someone's sketch!

This free show is a comedy laboratory to try new material and experiment with even your wildest ideas. Test-run your stuff before a show. Or dip a toe into sketch comedy and see if you can do it. Or just come and watch some of DC's best sketch comedians and see their newly hatched ideas before anyone else.


Bring 1 or 2 sketches. Keep your sketches to five pages or fewer. 

Print and bring a copy of your sketch for each performer. Bring an extra copy for the tech booth if you need any tech cues.

The last Thursday of every month

Sign-ups at 9:45. Show starts at 10.
