2012 Chicago Sketchfest: Sat 1/14 Picks

The 2012 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival (AKA Sketchfest) offers plenty of comedy tonight with 24 groups performing on four stages (The Thrust, The Pro, The Box, The Cab) at Stage 773.

Many of the groups performing tonight also performed last night or last weekend.

For tonight’s 9pm slot I’m picking Heavy Wait featuring T.J. Miller (Late Night with David Letterman, Comedy Central), Brady Novak (Community, Raising Hope), Mark Raterman (Second City) and Nick Vatterott (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan) but last night I saw Pangea 3000 and they were one of my absolute favorites this year so I also highly recommend seeing them tonight if you missed them yesterday.

Other second chance performances I recommend include The Tim and Micah Project, The Cupid Players, Urlakis and Cusick, Stupid Time Machine and Fuct.

These are my picks for tonight.
