UCB Tourco Coming to Wesleyan

Wesleyan improv comedy group Gag Reflex would like to invite you to attend the Upright Citizens Brigade touring company show, which will be performing on Wesleyan’s campus this weekend.

Hailing from The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the most renowned comedy theatre and school in the nation, the UCB TourCo cast is hand-picked from the best improv comedians in New York and Los Angeles to put on an hour of completely unscripted comedy that is truly awesome in every sense of the word.

The UCB TourCo represents the “next-wave” in comedy, proven by the fact that in the past the group has counted Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Horatio Sanz (Saturday Night Live), Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Ellie Kemper (The Office), Rob Riggle (The Daily Show), and Zach Woods (The Office) among its ranks.

The members of Gag Reflex urge you to buy tickets now, as they expect to sell out the night of the show. Tickets are available at the Wesleyan Box Office.

Place: Memorial Chapel
Date: Saturday, October 27th
Time: 8-9:30 pm
