Upright Citizens Brigade: ASSSSCAT (SOLD OUT)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This show is sold out. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door.

ASSSSCAT is UCB’s signature improv show that has played to critical acclaim and sold out audiences across the country.

It starts with a group of improv comedians from film & TV taking the stage with a special guest monologist. After getting a suggestion from the audience, our monologist shares off-the-cuff thoughts, feelings, and true stories inspired by your suggestion. The improvisers then spin this monologue into a series of scenes that will show you why ASSSSCAT is one of the longest running improv shows in the world!

Previous monologists include: Will Ferrell, Mark Hamill, Tina Fey, Charles Barkley, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Banks, Aubrey Plaza, Kumail Nanjiani, Amy Poehler, Robin Williams and more!
