Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

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. Our original comedy video productions have garnered the national spotlight. We also run the first nationally accredited improv and sketch comedy school in the country. For information on our courses, visit the Training Center.


GUTBUCKET is the UCB Theatre's weekly stand-up open-mic show.

And it's FREE!

Come see comedians you know working out new material along with comedians you don't know proving they're worthy of the stage.

Hosted by Rob Stern and Amber Nelson.

If you are interested in performing at GUTBUCKET, you just have to come to the show and sign-up.

Sign up between 10:00 and 10:35 by putting your name in the bucket at the bar. Fifteen names will be drawn at random, then posted before midnight (so you know if and when you're going on).
