Glencoe is known for many things in the world of the arts — sketch comedy panache should be right near the top of the list. 

Henry Melcher, a 2007 New Trier graduate, and his sketch comedy group Golden Baby (featuring two other New Trier grads) will headline the 14th Annual Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival Jan. 8-18 at Stage 773 in Chicago. The festival has grown over the years, drawing comedic acts from all over the country, yet another testament to the Second City’s claim to the top spot in the nation’s comedic consciousness.
