A cornucopia of sketch comedy performances spills from Stage 773, revamped in 2011 with a full-scale renovation that created four intimate stages from the initial too-intimate 773 stages. Longtime Chicago performers Brian Posen, Jill Valentine, and Brian Peterlin helm the theater, where they host the annual Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival every January to often sold-out crowds. They also draw in local acts and hold a weekly open-mic night called SMUSH, which welcomes sketch groups, improv troupes, and comedians.
