Upright Citizens Brigade Improvisation and Sketch Comedy Training Center


Because of extremely high demand, it's difficult to sign up for a UCB class.

Here's what to expect:
  • Classes sell out very quickly, sometimes less than a minute.
  • If you don't see a class that fits your schedule, we probably offer it but it's sold out.
  • You will not have to wait until the classes that are currently posted end, we will add more soon.
  • New classes are added constantly, we recommend checking frequently.
  • We offer classes morning, afternoon and evenings 7 days a week.
  • Sorry, we do not maintain wait lists for sold out classes.
Our sketch program has three courses: Sketch 101 ($400), Sketch 201 ($425) and Sketch 301 ($425). Each has eight three-hour sessions.

In this program, you will learn to write sketches in a variety of formats, working alone or with others while focusing on finding the "game" of your sketches. Successful completion of Sketch 201 or Sketch 301 allows you to apply for our Advanced Study program.
