Sometimes the biggest adventures don’t take place outside in nature, but instead they happen inside, in far more intimidating locations. The Upright Citizen Brigade comedy troupe and venue offers classes so that everyday people can learn the art of comedy and improv. If you’ve ever had an interest in getting up on stage and trying your hand at comedy, this may be the perfect way to test the waters.
The UCB Training Center offers classes every day of the week in many courses of study, including Improv 101–401, Sketch 101–301, and advanced study. Conducted much like any formal education, the UCB Training Center has rules, regulations, a catalog and tuition. The mission of UCB is to “foster the evolution of comedy by providing its students with the highest quality of professional training in both long form improvisation and written sketch comedy.”
If you’ve ever had a curiosity or a desire to get involved in the entertainment industry by way of improv or sketch comedy, the UCB Training Center is an ideal way to give it a shot without being thrown to the wolves. And if you’re not ready to make the leap just yet, you can enjoy a show at the Upright Citizens Brigade for an affordable price almost any day of the week.
Whether you’re attending a class or watching a show, make sure to put your best food forward by arriving in a refined vehicle like a 2013 GLK350 SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino.
