Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre information
Pros of comedy sketches and outrageous improvisations reign at this popular 74-seat venue, which gets drop-ins from casting directors. Getting in is cheap, and so is the beer and wine. You may recognize pranksters on stage from late-night comedy shows. It’s free on Sundays after 9:30pm and on Mondays after 11pm, featuring up-and-coming comics. You'll find quality shows happening nightly, from about 7:30pm, though the Sunday night Asssscat Improv session is always a riot.
There's also an Upright Citizens Brigade outpost in the East Village. Check the website for popular classes on sketch and improv, which happen in a studio at 520 Eighth Ave.
