Characters, premises, assists, point guarding – Stockton does is all while being hilarious, silly, sometimes sad and always really hard to google. A house sketch team from the Magnet Theater that writes and performs a new show every three weeks. Occasionally they take the best of the best from those shows and make a dream team of sketches, which they then tour around the country, bounce pass!


"The Storefront Gets Festy" is a fast paced, explosive sketch show consisting of some of our favorite sketches performed throughout Chicago in our first year as an underground comedy theatre / co-op. Starting in an abandoned storefront and branching out into premier Chicago theaters, we became known to be like a “pick up basketball game of comedy” - hosting, featuring, and working with a variety of troupes and individuals throughout Chicago. We began developing unique shows and reviews in house such as our sketch review "Storefront Gets Sketchy", full-length shows of only blackouts, and our unique writing competition "Writer's Block".
