Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

★★★★★
The UCB may have gained a mass audience, but it hasn't abandoned its stellar lineup or highly reasonable ticket prices.

I was surprised that our experience was so bad after reading all the good reviews. My friend and I went on Harold night, and we felt like the show was full of inside jokes that only about 1/8 of the audience seemed to get. It was kind of like they were performing just for their friends. It was really unprofessional. The performers seemed to expect the laughs and even taunted the audience when they didn't get them. The theater itself was really gross. Something dripped on me from the ceiling and it was the grungiest most uncomfortable seat. The staff was rude to us too. Sorry to bust everyone's bubble, but UCB sucked.

I've seen a bunch of shows here, late night comedy is especially fun. Always a good time, if you get there early and get in line!

It started late but it made up by the comedy genius of David The VOice Stein and Nick Fraley. Will come again.

Pros: Funny PEOPLE

Cons: Started late

This is a great place to watch hilarious shows, like the free Sunday night Assscat performances which often feature fun folks like Tina Fey or Amy Pohler. The other shows are also reasonably priced, but nothing is as fun as the free Sunday night shows. The theatre is small but intimate, and you can get cheap Pabst here. Definitely go here!

I had some friends in town and one of them had heard of this place so we went. I had no idea what it was, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was a hilarious improv comic group. They were funny and clever. I laughed from beginning to end. It was pretty cheap to get in and well worth the value.

i discovered the ucb one day through i believe the village voice over a year ago.\r\nand i know it's been around a lot longer, but i'm in love with the place.\r\nthey have tons of free or low cost shows, classes, awesome staff, easily accessible location, hilarious people (serious) & certain shows anyone can go up by just leaving their name at the counter & be randomly chosen to do so. it's the best.\r\nmy favorite show personally is Gutbucket (which is a monthly show at 12 AM Fridays, usually the 2nd one of the month, but it's different sometimes..)\r\nanyway, if you've never been before, this show is great.\r\nthe hosts are funny even if the randomly picked crew isn't, but i've NEVER been disappointed.\r\nplus they have cheap beer or wine if you so please!

UCBT is the place to go for quality comedy shows improv or otherwise. Whether you're there to check out the stars of Comedy Central do their thing at ASSSSCAT or just to watch as the kids break out during student night, you're always in store for a hilaruous time. There's none of uptightness or rigidity found at some of the more expensice comedy clubs in the city, just a cool and casual attitude. WIth average ticket prices ranging from $5-8 and $2 PBRs, price is never a problem. If that's not cheap enough for you, both ASSSSCAT and student night shows are offered free of cover. So get out of of the house and check out a show!

Pros: hilarious, cheap, fun

You can show up on any night and see something funny for $5-10. Not every joke or sketch hits the mark, but you will laugh more than you expect to!

Pros: Funny, Cheap

You know how a small, somewhat unknown comedy club can be hit or miss? This one is definitely a hit. My girlfriend and I have been twice and both times we laughed....a lot. Truly funny, smart and inventive comedy. Not to mention it only cost us $5 to get in the door mid-week. Grab yourself a couple of $2 PBRs and you got a cheap date! Definitely check this place out.

Pros: Value, Intelligence, The Funny

I am a big fan of comedy clubs, and the improv show I saw here the other night was without a doubt one of the funniest things I have ever seen!(Dont remember the name but it was 2 guys and a girl) They were all good, but in particular the woman should be immediately picked up by Saturday night live, as she could dramatically improve that show.\nBook your tickets in advance and get there early!\n(BYOB until they get their liquor license)
