Even if UCB wasn't basically a historic comedy institution at this point, it would still be a treasure simply based on the fact it offers CHEAP shows ($5-$10) seven days a week with some of the best performers in the world, both famous and not. On any day of the week you know you can show up and laugh your ass off, both at longstanding improv shows like Harold Night and Asssscat3000, but also with plenty of original shows like Fucking Identical Twins, Terry Withers Mysteries and Mike Birbiglia's Dream. Thank you, UCB Four, for granting all of us this little basement theater chock full of dick jokes.
