UCB TourCo brings the best improv comedians from the legendary Upright Citizens Brigade Theatres in New York and Los Angeles to new audiences all around the country. The UCB Theatre – founded by Amy Poehler, Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, and Matt Walsh – has been home to some of the biggest stars in comedy today. Four improvisers at the top of their game perform a high-energy, surprising and hilarious show that has never been seen before and will never be seen again.

Christian Capozzoli has been recognized as one of the top improvisers in North America. In addition to being the Founder and Artistic Director of New York City’s RECKLESS THEATRE, Capozzoli has performed at improv festivals in Toronto, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Munich, Chicago and Philadelphia, and he has been featured on The Colbert Report and VH-1’s Motel Hell.

Team Lopez is a puppet improv and sketch troupe based out of New York City. The group was born out of a puppet improv class with David Fino and performs primarily hand-and-rod style puppetry. They have performed together in NYC at The PIT, The Magnet Theater, The Creek and the Cave, and globally as part of SteelStacks Improv Festival, Baltimore’s Puppet Slamwich, and The Boston Comedy Arts Festival, just to name a few.
