“Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre has affordable, comedy shows seven nights a week in NYC and LA. Watch the best improv, sketch and standup in the country.” Similar to Second City, various troupes of the Upright Citizens Brigade perform nightly in different categories of comedy. Having seen a few of the shows now, my favorite is the The Diamond Lion Group. This troupe performs a unique brand of comedy in the form of short improv musicals; and features a piano player, 2-6 members of the original troupe, and a guest each week. This act performs Fridays at 11:00pm, and the entire hour of comedy stems from one suggestion given by an audience member at the top of the set. The just under 150-seat theater has been sold out each week I have attended, and because tickets are only $5, guests should make their reservations ahead of time. All shows are all ages; and no food, drink, or alcohol is permitted in the theater.
