Tonight, after two hilarious days of battle among 16 top sketch and improv teams, the winners move on to the People’s Improv Theater’s Sketchprov 2008 quarterfinals and semifinals. What is sketchprov? Well, using the Second City routine called “The Pad,” a team takes suggestions from the audience, jots them down on a pad, and then goes backstage to plan the sketch they’re going to present while another team performs. Teams include P.I.T. favorites the Avatards, Project: Projekt, and Vacation Island. You help decide who moves on to tomorrow night’s final round.
