    Some of the sketches are hit and miss, but always a good time. Sometimes you'll get some really funny (and semi-famous) comedians!

  • Chris C.

    Even if ASSSSCAT is sold out weeks in advance online, come a few hours early and buy a ticket to any of their other improv shows. Add your name to the wait list, you'll very likely get in to the show!

    So great! Shows all day, most for $5 or free. Love it love it. Good cheap fun.

    Best improv on the west coast

  • Melinda J.

    BYOB but hide it. Sometimes huge stars pop in on the shows. Never know who you are going to get.

    Melinda Jackson · August 24, 2014
  • Blake M.

    Asssssscat! Go on Sunday and it is free.

    Blake Meier · August 8, 2014

    Must stand behind the pink chalk line.

  • Bryan W.

    Great place to buy a tire iron and three ring binders.

    Bryan Westhoff · March 17, 2014
  • Michael M.

    Make reservations because shows definitely sell out.

    Michael Miraula · February 28, 2014
  • Jason W.

    See last day of school and convoy on Thursday night ... It will change your mind.

    Jason Weiner · February 12, 2014
  • Pablo M.

    Great place for a late Sunday night date.

    Pablo Magana · February 10, 2014
  • Jeff W.

    Get there 30-45 minutes before your show to sit in the front. It's quietly BYO so pop over to Oaks Gourmet for a beer to bring in.

    Jeff Weinstein · January 13, 2014
  • Michael P.

    Just find an interesting show and go.

    Michael Petralia · December 30, 2013

    Don't bring booze. If you do, hide that shit. Biddies.

    Fred Stevens-Smith · November 9, 2013
  • Sofija D.

    Cheap or free entertainment 7 nights a week. Always amazing. And the best parking situation I've encountered. There's always a spot on the street.

    Sofija Dutcher · October 30, 2013
  • Kim J.

    See #whatwouldneyoncedo It's clever and fun! Good time

    Kim Johnson · September 25, 2013
  • Bobby C.

    Only either really skinny people or slightly chubby people do improv comedy. Just an observation

    Bobby Cee · August 20, 2013
  • Alexa F.

    SWARM was not very funny. A few chuckles here and there, but I wouldn't see it again.

    Alexa Feuerman · August 17, 2013
  • Jon S.

    This place is a firetrap. Make sure you identify the exits.

    Jon Sanchez · August 17, 2013
  • Jon S.

    Don't come in Friday or Saturday. Lines ridiculous and parking is worse.

    See up-and-coming comedians for $10 or less.

    Get your funny on. Free your mind to let the funny in. Try it, you might love it.

    good place for a fun, inexpensive date night

    Bo Liebman · July 1, 2013
  • Brent G.

    Almost every show is funny. Love this place. Better than most movies.

    Brent Garripee · June 2, 2013
  • LA Weekly

    Cagematch, Facebook, Harold Night, Maude Night. ASSSSCAT, Last Day of School, Shitty Jobs and so many more great weekly shows to see here! Plus, you might spot a celebrity! Read more

    LA Weekly · April 30, 2013
  • Andy W.

    Generally unfunny; failed to fill me with mirth when the world is crumbling all around.

    Andy White · April 19, 2013
  • Kevin G.

    UCB is always a great time! If you're looking for a laugh go see any show! Check out a student show and support them and their hard work.

    Kevin Gerdes · April 8, 2013
  • Brian M.

    See Jon Gabrus! Just hilarious.

    Brian Manning · February 23, 2013

    If @jongabrus is performing you're in luck!

    Sentimental Lady on Saturday, Last Day/Convoy Thurs are both excellent!

    Mars Sanford · January 13, 2013
  • LA Weekly

    Go see "Last Day of School" and "Convoy." for $5 at 11 p.m. on Thursdays - two of the most seasoned and reliably hilarious improv teams in town. Also offering affordable and excellent improv classes! Read more

  • Zach B.

    If you want a show that will really make you laugh, do the Friday night improv musical at 11 p.m. If they can sing and improvise, you know they're good.

    Zach Behrens · January 2, 2013
  • Chad M.

    Get here a few minutes early so you don't have to valet park. If you want to be even cheaper, take your clothes off at birds.

    Chad Miller · October 20, 2012
  • Liza A.

    A.S.S.C.A.T. is the best show at UCB

    Liza Agsalud · October 15, 2012
  • Zach Z.

    If there was one thing I could do all day every day, it would be to live in the UCB Theatre. By far the best experience you'll have out here in terms of comedy,, improv, and theatre overall

    Zach Zucker · October 14, 2012
  • qwertney

    The 11:00 PM show on Thursday nights is a must-see: Convoy and The Last Day of School txt Message Show. Get your tickets early, because it sells out! Get there early, too!

    qwertney · October 1, 2012
  • katie z.

    Convoy is excellent.

    Make a reservation on the UCB website to guarantee seating. For popular shows, get there a half hour early or risk getting stuck in a seat with an obstructed view. Read more

    You really can't go wrong with the free Doug Loves Movies podcast tapings at 7:30 on Tuesday nights. Get in line early (usually starts forming around 5) and make an awesome name tag!
