The fourth annual Milwaukee Sketch and Improv Festival is just around the corner on the other side of summer. As near as  I can make out, one day longer than last year’s festival, the 2009 Milwaukee Sketchfest will run August 6 – 9. 

The Sketchfest will be holding a two-day fundraiser this Friday and Saturday at the Alchemist Theatre that appears to be its own mini-sketch and improv fest. The Friday (27th) program features The Gentleman’s Hour, preceded by Meanwhile (presumably without Nick Firer) and Scoot’s Schticks  The Saturday (28th) program features Broadminded, Organized Chaos and an open improv jam. Both are late night shows starting at 10:30pm at the Alchemist Theatre in Bay View. Tickets are $7

The Sketch Fest is still open for new applicants for 2009. More details are available on the Milwaukee Sketchfest Website.

Wisconsin has one of the most gerrymandered legislative district maps in the country. Would you support a system where legislative district lines were drawn by a nonpartisan commission, similar to the system in place in Iowa?
