Upright Citizens Brigade presents ASSSSCAT

ASSSSCAT, the Upright Citizens Brigade's improv juggernaut that has played to critical acclaim and sold out audiences in New York City for the past ten years, has landed in Los Angeles.  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.
This SXSW edition of ASSSSCAT will feature monologues from Arrested Development’s Jeffrey Tambor.
