Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

Venue Info

UCB is the city's premiere improv and sketch comedy venue, and also one of the busiest, with shows playing every night. Over a dozen courses are taught by famed comics (including co-founder Amy Poehler), from long-form improv to sketch writing. It’s probably the most well-known place in NYC to see up-and-coming comedians fine tune their art. Case in point: Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson met while taking a class there.
