In light of this year’s Skit Nite theme, let’s go Back to the Past of this event’s long and intriguing history.

For these past two years, I have had the honour of being one of Skit Nite’s directors alongside Justine Blanchette-Sirois. After three years of Skit Nites cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic (2020, 2021, and 2022), Justine and I were determined to bring back this event with “La Renaissance of Skit Nite” in 2023. To our surprise, it worked—and the response was unimaginable.

We received such kind and positive feedback from students and professors alike. We’d like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you who attended. This night really is unlike any other, and it’s easy to see why Skit Nite has endured for so long. Over countless generations, McGill Law students have marvelled at this unique and spectacular event. Its history stretches back further than anyone can recall. This set me on a mission to uncover the lore of Skit Nite and better understand this mysterious and iconic tradition.

What I learned both shocked and amazed me; what follows are the results of my investigation. I primarily used archived Quid Novi publications, along with some primary research conducted with former Skit Nite attendees from decades past. I acknowledge that some information might be missing, so I encourage alumni to reach out to enrich this research with their first-hand accounts.

Discovering the Origins of Skit Nite

I began my research set on determining when Skit Nite was born; the Committee was looking to sell branded merch referencing Skit Nite’s founding year. It was important for us to be as accurate as possible in determining that date. At the same time, would my seeking out this information destroy the magic of Skit Nite’s mysterious unknown origins?

We all know that Skit Nite has been around for ages—it seems older than any McGill Law professors can remember. As one student wrote in 1990, when summarizing the murky history of Skit Nite: “last year there was a Skit Night and there was one before that, and if we’re pushed we will admit that there was one before that year too”.1 It seemed that discovering Skit Nite’s founding year was going to be harder than I thought.

The earliest mention of the term ”Skit Nite” in the archives can be found in a 1979 McGill Daily article, which states that Skit Nite was “[w]here law students and professors emerge from their casebooks for an evening of crudity, debauchery and self-depreciation”.2 The event has not drifted too much from its roots—we certainly still self-deprecate—although perhaps we’ve cut out some of the crudity and debauchery. This article indicated that Skit Nite formally bore the title “Paper Waste II” but, unfortunately, I could find no record of “Paper Waste II” in the McGill Archives.

However, some clues allowed me to trace the papertrail back to a letter written by Dean Maxwell Cohen, addressed to the Law Undergraduate Society President.

The Dean wrote that he would be delighted to attend the “Bash and Skit” happening on January 26, 1973. At its genesis, Skit Nite’s name was in constant flux; changing many times over the decade until it settled upon “Skit Nite” by 1979. Even after this date, some students continued to erroneously spell it “Skit Night”.3

At this point I realised I had to search further back; I needed first hand accounts. In early 2023, Dean Leckey shared the poster graphic for “Skit Nite: La Renaissance” on his LinkedIn. In the comments of this post, it could be read that “’Skit Nite’ was amongst my fondest and most cherished memories of my McGill Law School years. I believe that the title of our 1972 skit was ‘A Comedy Tonight'”.

A primary source! Me Ian Solloway (BCL 1973). When I reached out to him, he informed me that, while he didn’t know which year Skit Nite was founded, “there was a Skit Nite in 1970, the year preceding ours. So, Skit Nite goes back at least 54 years and probably more”. Bingo. Our oldest confirmed date yet.

I was then connected with Emeritus Professor Stephen Scott (BCL 1966), who began teaching at McGill Law in 1970. He informed me over email that “Skit Nite in its present form dates from some point in the 1970s, but I can’t give you a date. It became longer and longer and a more elaborate production as time went on”. He recalled that some of these prototype versions of Skit Nite date as far back as his time as a student, in the 1960s.

Unfortunately, dear reader, I don’t really have an answer for you. The question as to when Skit Nite was founded becomes subjective and nearly impossible to answer: each year built on something that came before. Skit Nite was never suddenly born; but instead evolved out of something else that came before it. I left my investigation disappointed, without having found a decisive birth year, and overall exhausted from reading what felt like every edition of the Quid since its establishment. Maybe that’s what it’s all about? Perhaps picking a birth year is futile, a matter of opinion, and better left a mystery?

Stay with me. In the interest of providing you a satisfactory answer, I propose 1970 should be adopted as the event’s birth date.4 While, yes, the event only received its name in 1979, the essence of Skit Nite had been felt long before. We shouldn’t, however, be too generous in our definition of the earliest Skit Nite. In the 1960s, what we now know as Skit Nite only consisted of a small gathering of students impersonating their professors. With all this in mind, I suggest to you that 1970 is the best spot to mark Skit Nite’s official beginning.

Now that we’ve (hopefully?) established a founding year for Skit Nite, let’s take a journey down Skit Nite’s memory lane. Taking a research categorization method from one of the greats, Ms. Taylor Swift, I have categorized this rich history into eras. It should be noted that some generalizations will be used for the sake of simplicity, and details may occasionally be overlooked. Now let’s get into it.

The Lost Era: 1970s

I’ll admit, little is known about this time period. The records are lacking and what remains are first-hand accounts of alumni who have been so kind to share their experiences with us. We do know, as discussed, that the name of the event was not finalized before 1979, going through several iterations along the way.

As Scott explained, “the elaborate event we know today was preceded by a less elaborate annual event which was stated even in my time as a law student” (1963-66). As Solloway describes, in these early years “Skit Night was always a production put on by the 2nd year class”.

These early Skit Nites included sketches where students did impressions of their professors and the dean. It appears that these Faculty members were present and watching from the audience. These evenings have been described as loud and raucous, in fact, apparently the dean would even cancel the lectures of the following day! Perhaps something to ask Dean Leckey for March 14…

It is unclear where these nights took place, whether there was a theme or team of writers, or even whether there was a charity raising function to them. Most traces of these evenings…lost.

The Classical Era: 1980s

The 80s: The extraordinary expansion of Skit Nite! Various revolutionary changes mark this period of unprecedented growth for the event. To kick off the decade, David Hirsh and Richard Kurland produced Skit Nite in 1982. It was described as follows:

“This is an evening where we entertain our own. Faculty members co-mingle with the student body in an extravaganza that promises laughter and good clean fun. Student skits poke fun at life in Chancellor Day.”5

It seems Hirsh and Kurland did an outstanding job, as they received high praise after their 1982 show: “The ovation goes out to David Hirsh and Richard Kurland for their superhuman success in directing what has been unanimously considered as the best Skit Nite ever.”6

Hirsh and Kurland were the masterminds behind one of the most impactful evolutions of Skit Nite: the introduction of the theme. Hirsch described the theme as a way of changing “the show from a series of disjointed skits into a delightfully entertaining story.”7 They called their show “Malice in Wonderland”. The event appeared to be a major undertaking as there were singers, classical guitarists, jugglers, and special characters featured in the storyline.

At this point, however, Skit Nite was not yet big enough to serve as a charity fundraiser; the revenue from the event merely allowed the production to break even, and profits were used to bolster the following year’s funds.8

It appears that Skit Nite 1986, organized by Vince Gallo and Lenny Roth, was the first charity fundraiser. Skit Nite raised some $4,000 for the Old Brewery Mission, a local shelter. The event appeared to be a large success, but wasn’t without some production hiccups along the way—as expressed in this piece reproduced here. The author of this article, Terry Pether, defends these flaws as helping to show what Skit Nite is meant to be: “a bunch of law students collecting under the spotlight at the most languishing time of year to poke fun at anybody and everything that deserves the honour.”9

The first record of a Skit Nite controversy happened during the 1986 production. Several students expressed their disapproval with one particular performance during the night. As one student wrote: “What is fascinating is that this sketch was not killed for being so unfunny and in such poor taste.”10 Organizers would later write back that they thought the criticisms were unjustified.11

In the following years, Skit Nite continued to grow rapidly. In the fall of 1987, students organized a watch-party of the previous year’s Skit Nite on video at the “Happy House Coffee Hour”12 (sound familiar?). Skit Nite then saw some 400 people in attendance at its 1988 edition: “David Lawyerman”. Skit Nite had officially taken flight.

The Skit Nite Committee raised $8,000 and even added a second charity, Chez Doris, a local women’s shelter that year.13 The money raised through sales of tickets, t-shirts and beer was used to offset the actual cost of the show; meanwhile donations were actively solicited from law students, businesses, professors and alumni.14 We also know that tickets only cost $5.00 at this time, and likely remained this low until the turn of the century.

Towards the end of the decade, Skit Nite starts to face some newer criticism : où est le français? “L’année passée, le spectacle était complètement anglais. I am sure that many in the audience would appreciate and understand a little more French on stage.”15 By 1989, the Committee decided to welcome suggestions from the student body for a Skit Nite theme. Interestingly, the French version of the call-out message stated they were looking for “tous des thèmes fortement inculturés dans notre réalité québécoise.”16 Heureusement, Justine et Rayan s’assurent que l’on n’oublie pas la langue de Molière cette année.

The Golden Era: 1990s

With the previous decade of Skit Nite navigating both major additions and criticisms, the 1990s was set up for huge success. While some changes were implemented during this decade, Skit Nite found its groove. To kick off the decade, organizers Seth Dalfen, Kurt Johnson, and Gordo Levine hosted Skit Nite ‘91: “Fools in Law”.17 At this time, interest in participating on the Skit Nite Committee was so overwhelming that they held elections to decide the members. There remained controversy over Francophone participation on the Committee—one disappointed columnist wrote, “[m]alheureusement, cette année ne fut pas vraiment différente des autres avec très peu de participation francophone.”18

Subsequent years also saw the need to introduce try-outs for skits due to high interest.19 This component was re-introduce this year thanks to widespread interest in participating; auditions were warranted. I speculate that the existence of try-outs and elections for Skit Nite organizers are a good proxy indicating high participatory interest and event quality.

By Skit Nite ‘93, “Little Shop of Lawyers,” the Committee added yet another charity to the list—including “Dans La Rue,” a charity for struggling teenagers, along with Chez Doris and Old Brewery Mission. The event raised $12,000 for these charities.20 This growth continued in the subsequent years with ‘94 “Sesame Street Legal”,21 ‘95 “Fiddler on the Bench”,22 and ‘96 “Legality Bites”.23 This period saw the pinnacle of fundraising efforts, with the highest-ever record coming in just over $20,000.24

Then came Skit Nite 1998. Fundraising Chair Stephanie Taylor reported that the team had outdone itself and raised nearly $30,000; an absolutely astronomical number that raises doubts as to how it could ever be beaten.25 The Skit Nite Committee during this era, had an extra arm, strictly for fundraising purposes. The fundraisers would regularly reach out to over 300 businesses and law firms, as well as solicit from students, professors, and alumni.26

After the turn of the century, Skit Nite was never able to fundraise as much; likely due to scrapping this fundraising team on the Committee. As an obiter, perhaps this is a part of Skit Nite that should be brought back for future years, and would allow more sources of fundraising besides solely ticket sales.

The Steady Era: 2000s

By the turn of the century, Skit Nite had grown so much, so fast. By this point, there wasn’t much more to expand upon. The first few Skit Nites of this decade would carry over the massive success that was seen in the 90s. However, by the end of the decade, students’ enthusiasm had apparently declined.

We are provided with a fascinating glimpse into what Skit Nite 2001 was like with the Quid article of 3L student Robert Leckey, as he was then.27 He writes that Skit Nite has prospective students and law firm sponsors in attendance. Contrasted with the current sole-sponsor model, it seems at this time various law firms were involved in sponsoring the event in tandem. Leckey contemplated whether the outside presence of law firms was value-adding, writing, “[t]he evening also highlighted our complex and still inchoate relationship with law firm sponsors. Do we want them there contributing to charities or not?”28

It is unclear if the Faculty had invited prospective students to attend Skit Nite to get a sense of McGill Law in the past. Whether or not they received an invitation, Dean Leckey questions whether the event should have them in the audience, writing, “I’m left, though, ambivalent as to whether this is really a good event with which to introduce new students to the school”.29 We hope to have changed his mind, though perhaps additional primary source research is needed on that front.

With Skit Nite 2002, themed “Mind Trip,” ticket prices went up to $20 (the same price we charge 22 years later today!). A new twist was added by organizers Jeff Feiner and Lawna Hurl: a “Best Skit Award” selected by a panel of judges.30

Skit Nite 2003 organizer Freddie Fischer made clear his vision for improving the quality of the show. His main priority was shortening the show to a more reasonable 2-3 hours down from, allegedly, 6 hours sometimes. He also had strict requirements for quality control of the acts, and did not shy away from editing or even cutting performances all together:

“The thing about performers, however, is that they do not like to have their acts touched. Furthermore, many believe their acts are beyond improvement. They are wrong. Not all acts are good from the start. Some acts are just plain bad, some acts are boring, some acts make no sense.”31

Another major change that Fischer introduced, which has evolved to some extent, was the introduction of a “writing team [which] would be responsible for weaving a golden thread into the show, this team was responsible for fixing weak skits and filling up empty show space”.32 In essence, what Fischer introduced here were the modern-day Animateurs. It is not clear why this term is used now, their function is the same. However, today the Animateurs take on a much more expansive role for Skit Nite as a whole.

Throughout the 2000s there was a noticeable decline in the funds raised for charities. In the early years the event raised anywhere from $16,000 to $19,000, which is certainly an enormous amount.33 However, fundraising would eventually decline as the years progressed. By the end of the decade, it seems the Fundraising Chair position on the Committee was scrapped and the only amount that would be donated to charity was from ticket sales.

Another major change from this decade was the changing locations for Skit Nite. While the early Skit Nites to take place were in the Old Chancellor Day Common Room, eventually a larger space was needed and so the event moved to the Student Union Ballroom which seats over 300.34 By 2003, an even larger venue was required and so the event was moved to the Medley (now closed).35 By 2009, Skit Nite had moved again, this time, to Club Soda – the same location used to this day.36

The 2000s would see a surge of new technologies and mediums allowing Skit Nite to spread wider and entertain more than ever before. The first known Skit Nite email was introduced in 2002 with “”,37 later followed by various others used throughout this time.38 Skit Nite also introduced its first website, with Skit Nite 2006 “The Kasirer Code” at (unfortunately now a dead link). There was also unprecedented use of videos in the promotion and as actual parts of the show.39

The Modernization Era: 2010s

Prior to 2010, interest and attendance at Skit Nite was somehow dwindling. Luckily, in 2010-2011, a very dedicated and spirited Skit Nite legend, Charlie Feldman, took over. His efforts reignited Skit Nite with an unprecedented energy for years to come. His dedication to the show set the gold standard for Skit Nite production and quality.

After Skit Nite 2010 “A Night at the Law(scers)”. Professor Janda stated that it was one of the best Skit Nites he had ever seen, as did many others in attendance.40 The following year, Skit Nite had sold 310 tickets, an apparent record for around this time and an increase of 100 people from the year before.41 It was clear that Feldman’s back-to-back rounds of Skit Nite organization had bolstered student interest in Skit Nite.

During this time, funds were still being raised for the four main charities: Chez Doris, Dans la Rue, Share the Warmth, and the Mission Old Brewery. However, relying again solely on ticket sales to generate revenues, the funds raised for charity dropped down to about $3,000 during this decade.42

Moreover, an exclusive sponsorship arrangement was made with Blakes as the official—sole—sponsor of Skit Nite beginning in 2010. By 2014, however, Osler had taken its place as the new official sponsor of Skit Nite.43

This modernization period was particularly notable for its use of videos, both as promotion and entertainment during the show. Feldman created the YouTube channel “Skit Nite McGill” in 2010, where he uploaded video footage of Skit Nite. Later years would follow the trend, and upload all sorts of sketches, musical performances, and promotional videos on YouTube. By Skit Nite 2018 “Law Skits Tonight” and 2019 “Tout le Monde en Parle”, high-quality video footage of the entire show was filmed, edited, and uploaded to YouTube. These later years were especially advanced by a four-timer, highly talented Animateur, Antoine Godin-Landry.

The Silent Era: 2020-2022

Skit Nite “Occupation Trouble À La Faculté: A Bachelor’s Degree” was scheduled for March 13, 2020.44

Days before the show, the Dean issued a notice that Skit Nite would have to be cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic: “We deeply regret to announce that Skit Nite, perhaps for the first time ever, has been cancelled”.45 He was right; never before had Skit Nite been called off. This show, which hard-working students had poured their hearts into, would never take place. Nor would subsequent years of Skit Nite in 2021 or 2022. During the quiet period, any students who had ever seen a Skit Nite live would gradually complete their degrees, while new students, unaware of Skit Nite’s former glory, would take their places.

The Renaissance Era: 2023

The pandemic left a whole generation of BCL/JD students who had never seen Skit Nite by the 2022-2023 academic year. Justine and I were fully aware that resuscitating Skit Nite, after years in darkness, would require an immense effort and risked completely flopping. This inspired the theme of Skit Nite 2023 “La Renaissance” as we made it our goal to bring this event back to life. We had to continue various traditions that were forged by 50 years of Skit Nite, and passed down to us.

We did, however, take a gamble on expanding the role of Animateurs; this time choosing a larger-than-usual team of six funny hosts to perform skits and guide the show. Perhaps in contrast to previous years, we hosted auditions for our Animateurs and found ourselves belly-laughing at the hilarious auditions of Marielle McCrum, Pablo Mhanna-Sandoval, Ali Hachem, Carolina Muñoz, Nick Doiron, and Rayan Tibiche-Dahmoune.

At “La Renaissance” on March 15, 2023, we were blown away by the enthusiasm of the students, and most of all, the quality of the performances. We were not sure how big Skit Nite could be, but gradually ticket sales rose all the way to 500 in attendance and raised over $10,000.

The Present

As I write this, Justine and I are gearing up for yet another spectacular Skit Nite. We are beyond proud and grateful for our amazing, smart, hilarious, creative, brilliant team of Animateurs, many of whom are returning for a second time: Marie Jolicoeur-Becotte (our newbie), Carolina Muñoz Jasa, Pablo Mhanna-Sandoval, Marielle McCrum and Rayan Tibiche-Dahmoune. In addition, I must express an enormous debt of gratitude to Stephanie Kay, the LSA VP Communications and Skit Nite graphic designer for these past two years. She is responsible for making our beautiful posters and logos for both “La Renaissance” and “Back to le Futur,” along with so much of these events’ promotional content.

To pay homage to Skit Nite’s rich past, and in the spirit of continuing this legacy into the future, Skit Nite 2024 proudly wears the title: “Back to le Futur”. With Skit Nite’s re-birth last year, it is time to step into this new era of Skit Nite. Le clin d’œil au FR/EN du titre se veut également une reconnaissance de la poursuite éternelle de la promotion du bilinguisme dans le spectacle, peu importe combien réussie (ou pas) par le passé.

As our last hurrah, “Back to le Futur” will be our biggest (self-inflicted) challenge yet. Ticket sales have been racing by, and we’re likely to see many of your favourites returning from “La Renaissance”, including: The Sandy Cats’ jams, Dean Leckey’s vocals, Corey Mandelzys’s video wizardry, and Dexter Deveau and Emma Butson as Mr. Civil and Mrs. Common Law. New performers will also take the stage, and be sure to impress you with their talent.

Into le Future

When conducting my Skit Nite investigation, I discovered Skit Nite is a time-honoured tradition that has brought students and Faculty members together for generations. It has a deep and beautiful history that should not be forgotten.

That being said, Skit Nite was never perfect and likely never will be; we must avoid putting the past on a too-high pedestal. Many improvements changed and shaped the event to become more inclusive and accessible to students. We’ve also seen how production and quality checks were implemented throughout the years; from adopting a theme, assembling a team of Animateurs, to hosting auditions for performers.

We’ve also seen how attendance and fundraising have and will fluctuate. These long-term cycles of growth and contraction demonstrate the important impact any of us can have; not just for the years we attend McGill Law, but even for decades after.

Metric tons of work have been poured into Skit Nite to build it into the institution it is today. In a 1982 call-out for organizers, Pearl Eliadis wrote “Skit Nite needs more than just directors. It needs proud parents. Two dedicated souls to nurture and cherish this time-honoured institution”. 46 Over forty years later, I couldn’t agree more.

I am honoured and proud to have had the opportunity to carry this torch for two years of Skit Nite’s long history. Last year, we proved, all together, that Skit Nite is a resilient and enduring event—it survives all force(s) majeure(s) thrown its way. Skit Nite could not be extinguished—not even after a global pandemic shut it down for a whole generation of students.

But if Skit Nite is to continue to grow in the post-Renaissance era, it will need new proud parents. Guardians who will not ignore nor idealise Skit Nite’s past, but instead learn from it and build upon what generations before us have created, for the future cohorts of McGill Law.

For my parting words (yes, you’ve made it to the end of the article), I leave you with a quote I found during my investigation from Feldman, which particularly resonated with me. Taking his final bow from Skit Nite in 2011, he hoped that a future McGill Law student, maybe a decade from now, would search through the Quid archives to discover this rich history of Skit Nite. Going back to le passé was well worthwhile to uncover all of the above, I hope this makes Charlie proud:

“(As a side note, if you look in the Quid archives (in the Rare Books part of the library) you’ll find some old Skit Nite recaps – I kind of hope someone stumbles on this a decade from now :-P)”47

Special thank you to Justine Blanchette-Sirois, Jacob Shannon and Marielle McCrum for providing their excellent editing suggestions to this article.
