THE LAW FIRM (NEW YORK, NY)
Have you been wronged by someone in your life? A bad boss, a shitty friend, an ex who stole your identity? The Law Firm wants to represent YOU. Watch as UCBT’s finest improvisers turn one audience member’s testimony into a fully improvised show. Members of The Law Firm of have starred in and written for 30 Rock, Broad City, Best Week Ever, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Louie, Netflix, HBO, & more!

You can catch them performing every Friday night in New York City at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.

NORTH COAST (NEW YORK, NY)
With a cast of improv comedy veterans from The Upright Citizens Brigade, the Peoples Improv Theater and The Magnet theaters in New York City, North Coast’s explosive performances have been packing comedy venues, universities, and festivals nationwide since 2009. Built around a single suggestion from an audience member, the show’s improvised scenes escalate into full-blown hip-hop songs, facilitated by one of our world renowned beatboxers, including Ethan “Exacto” Scott & Kaila Mullady.

With their seamless melding of comedic timing and freestyle rapping abilities, North Coast frequently blurs the line between comedy show and concert, drawing audiences from the comedy, hip-hop, and theater communities for an experience that has been hailed as “mind-blowing” and “next level” by critics and audiences alike.

Named one of the “Top Ten Best Comedy Shows” by Time Out New York, North Coast has been featured in Slate’s Podcast The Gist, The Village Voice, and The New York Times Comedy Listings. Currently, you can catch them performing every Saturday night in New York City at The Peoples Improv Theater.

Bronson Horror Fest

Bronson Horror Fest.png

A group of friends meet each other at a remote location - a cabin the woods, a florencian villa, a boat house on a lake - for a much needed break from the outside world. They're so far away from other people. It's so quiet. It's so dark. 

The power goes out. 
Rebecca is dead.

**This show is performed by students enrolled in a UCBT Advanced Study improv class.**
 

See everything you'd expect from a movie improvised live on stage -- dramatic camera angles, tense editing, high-flying action sequences and tender denouement. Never-before-seen movies created from audience suggestions that span every era, every style, and every genre, but always better than anything you'd see at a multiplex.

Kami Dimitrova

Kyle Ewert

Jenny Gorelick

Nick Guastella

Peter Johnston
