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

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!
