If you’re a comedy fan, then you’ve probably heard of the Upright Citizens Brigade. The improv troupe formed by Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, Adam McKay, Rick Roman, Horatio Sanz and Drew Franklin emerged out of Chicago in the early ’90s and went on to get its own TV show on Comedy Central for three seasons, as well as open two world-famous improv theaters in Los Angeles and New York City.
Now Poehler, Roberts, Walsh and Besser are back with a new project called The UCB Show for an exciting new online comedy subscription service called Seeso.com. You will undoubtedly find something in the comedy world that you love on the site, whether it’s old favorites like Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock or just plain old stand-up and improv.
