Cage Match FINALS

Welcome to the world's most dangerous Improv arena, where two mighty teams of improv gladiators will take the stage to prove who is the best of the best. Two improv teams each perform their set timed by an onstage clock, and YOU vote via secret ballot for the more dominant competitor. The team with the most votes returns as Champion the following week to face off against a new challenger. 

For scores, records, and stats for the current season as well as archives from the past, check out http://cage-match.com/

CageMatch is hosted by the UCBW, the UCB's own ridiculous wrestling league. Each week you'll see one REAL and intense comedy wrestling match in the ring each week featuring the stable of UCBW MegaStars.  Follow along with the silly story-lines as feuds lead up to big "Pay-Per-View" Saturday night shows four times a year.

Come watch a group of improvisers create a brand new musical right before your eyes! Everything will be made up on the spot - from the dance to the music to the lyrics. They'll take you to a whole new world and all that jazz. Anything goes! Xanadu. 

Gersenality

If you Google the last name "Gersen", musical comedian Eric Gersen does not come up on the first page of results. This wouldn't be that big of a deal if it weren't for that fact that some of the people who DO show up include: a failed meth dealer, an obscure sci-fi protagonist, and Eric's actual brother. Watch as Eric tries to rectify this gross oversight and get on the first page of results by doing the most difficult task imaginable - performing 25 to 30 minutes of scripted comedy (almost) by himself.

Baby Grand at Del Close Marathon

Baby Grand is a NYC-based musical improv group who take your suggestions or stories and turn them into brand spanking new musicals right before your eyes. Like Wicked, but better!

*The Del Close Marathon is the largest improv festival in the world, and was founded by the Upright Citizens Brigade in 1999. The first DCM had 36 shows in 30 hours at one venue. In its 19th year DCM has grown to 3 days, 10 stages over 650 shows and panels. Over the past 19 years DCM has slowly turned into a festival not only celebrating the man responsible for turning improvisational comedy into its own art-form, but DCM is also now an inclusive celebration that embraces and brings together voices from around the country and world all in one weekend through the use of the art form of comedic improvisation.

Eighth Grade Teachers Ms. Tennis and Ms. Bran are super excited to take their class on the annual Washington, D.C. trip.

And just because they're "on a trip" doesn't mean Ms. Tennis and Ms. Bran are gonna be "chill."

Hosted this month by Becky Chicoine and special guest Rachel Wenitsky (Mouth Time with Reductress, Pop Roulette)

Featuring bits from:

Caroline Martin (Astronomy Club, Comedy Central Snapchat "Black Women: the Truth is Out There")
