Skit Box is a Australian comedy troupe born in 2012 when actresses Adele Vuko, Sarah Bishop and comedian Greta Lee Jackson decided to join forces and create some twisted, female-driven comedy. Within three months of their initial meeting, the girls had developed, written and shot several sketches involving a range of dark and colourful characters which would become the basis of the first season of their online web-series, In a Woman’s World.
Since launching, Skit Box has appeared on the front page of Funny or Die and been featured in Splitsider, CollegeHumor, Inside Film, FilmInk, and Cleo. In 2013, Skit Box began branching out into other projects in film, television and music. Their short film The Artist played as part of the official selection at the LA Comedy Shorts Festival. The ABC then commissioned them to develop a comedy sketch for the ABC2 Xmas Quickie series. Their first song was ‘Daddy Issues’ from their musical alter-egos Sex Tape.
In 2014, Skit Box appeared on the ABC as part of the Fresh Blood comedy initiative with Screen Australia and ABC iView, and their short film The Polygamist was selected to screen at several festivals including St Kilda Film Festival, Rottofest (Western Australia), New York Independent Film Festival, Urban Media Makers Festival and the Iron Mule Comedy Film Festival in New York, where it took out the Judges’ Favourite Award. In 2015, The Polygamist played at Flickerfest Film Festival, and Skit Box had had their first TV pilot commissioned - a sketch comedy show which they wrote, directed and starred in called Wham Bam Thank you Ma’am. The show was later greenlit for a full series, which aired on ABC2 in late 2016. Most recently, Skit Box has worked on Foxtel’s new comedy series The Slot, which features prominent Australian comedians and Youtube stars, and which will screen on FOX8.
