The Sketch Comedy Troupe is a group that was started at MSUM in the spring semester of 2007. The troupe strives to bring comedy through satirical, topical, and sometimes purely nonsensical skits, or short films. All of the material is written and performed by The Sketch Comedy Troupe's cast. Special guests (i.e. professors around campus, or any big name around the Fargo/Moorhead area in general) are invited to perform with the troupe at every show, a different musical guest is also invited to each performance. Together, the troupe's members work not only for themselves, but also to help one another to become stronger, more versatile writers/performers. The Sketch Comedy Troupe can be seen performing on the Gaede stage in the Center for the Arts several times each year.
