Throughout nine rounds, 43 troupes will be blasted down to four in a comedy relay to the finals. In the Preliminary Rounds troupes have five minutes to impress; during the Semi-Finals troupes have ten minutes to triumph. The final four troupes have only fifteen minutes to win over audience voters to become the Sketch Com-Ageddon Champions!
