A pie cools on a windowsill. A waiter confuses an order. A briefcase is switcherooed. See The Birthday Boys reprise their debut UCB show, featuring a parade of (fictional) sketches full of adventure, rebellion, longing, and mix-ups. Bring your friends and bring your best gal!

The Birthday Boys formed their sketch group at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Los Angeles in 2007. Their sketch comedy TV series (The Birthday Boys) was executive produced by Bob Odenkirk and aired on IFC. In addition to staging monthly sketch shows at UCB for over five years, they have performed at venues nationwide and at a number of festivals, including the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. Their collaboration with Odenkirk has also produced a variety of live shows in L.A. and San Francisco. The group's combined writing credits include Comedy Bang! Bang!, the MTV Movie Awards, and projects for Comedy Central, Fox, and Funny or Die. Members of the group have also appeared in With Bob and David, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Kroll Show, Childrens Hospital, Conan, NTSF:SD:SUV::, and Portlandia. Their most popular online work includes videos with names like HAM HAT and POOLJUMPERS.
