UCB offers three or four shows per night across a variety of disciplines: There's stand up, improv, sketch and off-kilter comedy. Many shows sell out weeks in advance, and fans wait in long lines just to get in the door. Highlights include the flagship ASSSSCAT improv show ($10 on Saturdays but free on Sundays), Death By Roo Roo, Diamond Lion and Harold Night. As well as the consistently star-studded Comedy Bang Bang (Tuesdays, 8:30pm), where you might find Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari and Patton Oswalt on the same bill. There's no bar, but you can BYO from the nearby Gelson's market.

One of the best ways to spend $5-$10 in LA & an excellent use of a night out. On any given night, you're likely to be treated to excellent improv, and on most nights you might even spot a performer you recognize from TV or film. I've been countless times & don't think I've been disappointed yet. Check the website before coming by as many shows sell out far in advance + there are a few beginner shows that sometimes aren't as high quality as the rest. Also, like most place in LA, beware of the line and come early if you want a good spot, even if you have tickets.
