Sketch Riot is PHIT Comedy’s weekly showcase of the best Live Sketch Comedy that Philadelphia has to offer. Every week has something different, whether it’s a brand new show by one of PHIT’s esteemed sketch house teams, an exceptional performance from an independent comedy act, or a scripted comedy show that defies easy description. The only certainties with Sketch Riot is that rules will be broken, and fun will be had.
This performance is headlined by The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie.
The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie is a Philly sketch duo consisting of Matthew Schmid and Jacquie Baker. Matt & Jacquie's dark, absurd, and surprisingly genuine sketches feature doomed idiots who are just doing the best they can.
The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie’s sketch videos have garnered attention from The A.V. Club and Comedy Cake and nominations at the 2016 FirstGlance Film Festival. Matt & Jacquie have opened for Emo Philips, Brent Weinbach, and DJ Douggpound, and they have performed at the New York Comedy Festival, Toronto Sketchfest, Montréal Sketchfest, and Philly Sketchfest. Philebrity has described The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie as "essential viewing for the comedy obsessed" and Matt & Jacquie's previous show "Sketch Comedy" was called "impressive" by Montréal's Bad Feeling Magazine.
