Once regular performers at the L.E.S. bar Pianos, the Whitest Kids U’ Know are now more likely to be seen on the IFC Channel doing their delightfully bizarre sketches (such as turning the Civil War into a war on drugs). But for the four-night comedy festival Sketchfest NYC, which kicks off today, the gang will be making two appearances—a performance on Friday at 9 and a panel discussion on Saturday at 4. Other performers you won’t want to miss include Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal tonight at 10, B.O.F. with Mamrie Hart and Stephen Soroka on Thursday at 8, and the Onion News Network on Saturday at 1.
