The UCB Touring Company brings the best improv comedians from the legendary Upright Citizens Brigade Theatres to new audiences all around the country. Our flagship touring show is a 90-minute, unscripted and totally improvised performance. Four improvisers at the top of their game perform a high-energy, surprising and hilarious show that has never been seen before and will never be seen again.
The original Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) is the comedy powerhouse founded by Amy Poehler, Matt Besser, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh. They run two theatres in New York and two in LA, where they feature improv, sketch and standup seven nights a week. They also operate one of the largest improv training centers in the country, with classroom facilities on both coasts. In addition to our classes and live comedy performances, they work with brands, ad agencies, media companies and universities. They run a branded content unit/TV production studio, plus a touring company that performs at theatres and colleges. And their improv workshops are the de facto standard for corporate training.
This free event is open to the public and sponsored by the TLU Jessie S. and Jack Harold Upton Brown Cultural Enrichment Endowment Fund.
