Episode notes

Matt Besser is a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, a comedy group which brought long-form improvisation to New York City in the late 1990s, and has brought high-quality comedy to both coasts since opening theaters in New York and Los Angeles. Besser talks about the history of the group, which also includes SNL’s Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh, and has also included comedy luminaries like Adam McKay and Horatio Sanz. The second season of their Comedy Central sketch series was recently released on DVD.

We also hear improvisation from Besser and colleagues from the UCB Theater in Los Angeles — Sean Conroy, Andy Daly and Chad Carter.
