Sketchorama is a format for Radio 4 which offers the same popular showcase dynamic as stand-up shows, but purely for comedy sketch groups.

Sketchorama aims to bring hidden gems and established live acts to the airwaves offering a truly distinctive and ambitious show for Radio 4.

Series 1 was hosted by Humphrey Ker, with Thom Tuck (also from The Penny Dreadfuls) the host from Series 2 and Series 3. Isy Suttie is the new host.

The show is notable for the special edition which featured a reunion for classic sketch group Absolutely.
