Sketch Block

  • Under St. Marks 94 Saint Marks Place New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)

Sketch Block is a comedy showcase that gives sketch troupes an opportunity to perform without the pressure of bringing in an audience. Also, Sketch Block does not force their audience to pay for drinks. We believe that it's your choice to drink or not. It's about the comedy and networking!

Sketch Comedy meets Block Party. This monthly show features a guest host comedian, three guest sketch troupes and drinking. Come meet, mingle, and perform.

This is who will show off this month

Amanda Ariel “Peggy” Xeller -
A writer, improviser, and clown residing in New York City. Her solo work has been featured in the Sketch Republic, was a part of the L.A. Scripted Comedy Festival, NYC Sketchfest, Philly Sketchfest, and was named a “stand out” and “audience favorite” at Montreal Sketchfest ’15 by Mobtreal. She recently headlined the sketch night of this year's Ladyfest. She improvises in several shows at the Annoyance Theatre. She co-heads the annual Lady Sketch Lab and co-produces Ringers at the Magnet Theater.
Amanda grew up across the street from an alligator filled bayou in Houston, Texas. She wishes she could sing like Justin Hawkins.
