A comedy show which is predominantly short sketches, often related. Also known as a Sketch Show, it's a descendant of the Variety Show.
They usually have a stable of comic stereotypes, used in a series of sketches, with no continuity. Each show will include a few sketches about each of the iconic characters interspersed with one-off sketches.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Particularly successful sketches may be spun-off into a Sitcom or a movie (such is the case of Saturday Night Live, The Kids in the Hall, and SCTV).
The show may include musical numbers or a stand-up act, but only as a minor element. Sometimes, when the various iconic characters are shown interacting, the show may border on being a plotless Sitcom. Conversely, a Negative Continuity Sitcom may be accused of being a Sketch Show.
Compare with Variety Show. See also Anthology Film, which might be this applied to the big screen. Can overlap with Gag Series, which also emphasizes jokes over plot and anything else.
