Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (UCB Franklin)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
