The Law Firm (New York, NY)

The Law Firm

Watch as UCBT’s finest improvisers turn one audience member’s testimony into a fully improvised show. Members of The Law Firm of have starred in and written for 30 Rock, Broad City, Best Week Ever, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Louie, Netflix, HBO, & more!

North Coast (New York, NY)

North Coast

With a cast of improv comedy veterans from The Upright Citizens Brigade, the Peoples Improv Theater and The Magnet theaters in New York City, North Coast’s explosive performances have been packing comedy venues, universities, and festivals nationwide since 2009. Built around a single suggestion from an audience member, the show’s improvised scenes escalate into full-blown hip-hop songs, facilitated by one of our world renowned beatboxers, including Ethan “Exacto” Scott & Kaila Mullady.

With their seamless melding of comedic timing and freestyle rapping abilities, North Coast frequently blurs the line between comedy show and concert, drawing audiences from the comedy, hip-hop, and theater communities for an experience that has been hailed as “mind-blowing” and “next level” by critics and audiences alike.

Named one of the “Top Ten Best Comedy Shows” by Time Out New York, North Coast has been featured in Slate’s Podcast The Gist, The Village Voice, and The New York Times Comedy Listings. Currently, you can catch them performing every Saturday night in New York City at The Peoples Improv Theater.
