ASSSSCAT is the Upright Citizens Brigade's improv juggernaut that has played to critical acclaim and sold out audiences across the country.

So what exactly is ASSSSCAT?  Well, it starts with a group of improv comedians currently working in film and television taking the stage accompanied by a special guest monologist. Some guest monologists are talented celebrities, others are screwed up weirdos.  Either way, they usually have great stories to tell.  We take a suggestion from the audience, then the show begins.

The special guest shares off-the-cuff thoughts, feelings, and personal remembrances inspired by the suggestion.  The improvisers in turn use this impromptu monologue as fodder for a series of high octane, balls-to-the-wall improvised sketches that have made this show one of the longest running improv shows in the history of the world.

Featuring a rotating cast of: Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, Sean Conroy, Jon Gabrus, Mary Holland, Lauren Lapkus, Jessica McKenna, Betsy Sodaro, Joe Wengert and Zach Woods, plus special guest improvisers and monologist.
