Though the local sketch and improv festivals have passed, comedy fans don’t have to wait a whole year for another one. The third annual Milwaukee Sketch & Improv Festival opens tonight at 7:30 PM with a showcase of improv troupes: Track Jacket Review, the Union, and Chicago-based 96D and Size Eight.

There are eight revues with 22 ensembles from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, and Kentucky. Several Chicago groups are performing, including Money in the Pants, Stir Friday Night!, the Cool Table, and Pimprov. There's also a family-friendly show on Saturday at 4:30 PM. Tickets for all events are $5-$15.
