The Hollywood Reporter Named UCB Theatre in The Top 25 Improv Comedy Classes in NYC, Manhattan, New York

It's common knowledge that New York City's Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre has the best improv comedy shows and classes the city has to offer, but it's nice to know others recognize it too! This past spring, The Hollywood Reporter named UCB Theatre among "The 25 Best Drama Schools in 2014." This, of course, was referring to the improv comedy classes the sketch comedy theater offers.

The NYC comedy club has been recognized before, with Salon.com calling UCB Theatre "...the hippest of New York's comedy rooms, and home to the highest-quality improv in the city." New York Press added, "Best acting class for non-actors.”

UCB Theatre, which has comedy clubs in New York City, Chicago, and L.A., placed 23rd on the list. Of course, that's for all drama schools! Going back a bit further, in November of last year Paste Magazine named the comedy club as one of the "8 great comedy schools from around the nation."

Taking a look at where the comedy theater's graduates go, it's no wonder the classes are held in such high regard. UCB recently sent out an announcement congratulating scores of former UCB sketch comedians that were up for Emmy awards. These are people working on some of television's best; from Lena Dunham on Girls to Rob Corddry on Adult Swim, and many more behind the scenes.
