Upright Citizens Brigade Improv Workshop

Get ready for a ton of improv fun when talented members of the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Troupe make an appearance at Bank Street Bookstore.

A short introduction to the Upright Citizens Brigade's Comedy Improvisation Manual will be followed by a master-class in some of the mechanics of long form improvisation featuring local improv groups from Columbia and around NYC. All ages are welcome!

The workshop will be presented by Will Hines, the academic supervisor of UCB's Training Center and Improv School, and other veteran teachers and performers from the theater. 

The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (UCB), America's premiere comedy school, has just released its first book: The Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual. Written by the theatre's founders who brought Chicago-style improv to New York, this exclusive manual is a comprehensive guide to the UCB style of long form comedy improvisation. This new release is a must have for anyone interested in theater, comedy and the performing arts.


Registration is recommended. Please call Bank Street Bookstore at 212-678-1654 or join the UCB Improv Workshop Facebook event page.
