Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Co.
Upright Citizens Brigade, an improv-comedy troupe originally formed in Chicago in 1990, counts Amy Poehler, Adam McKay, and Horatio Sanz among its many distinguished alumni. Along with producing a much-loved TV show, the group went on to establish theaters in both New York and LA, where the members have helped comedic actors hone their performing chops during classes and in front of audiences.
Many of these performers roam the roads as part of the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company, which transports its energetic, off-the-cuff shows to venues across the country. Onstage, the quick-witted players mold scenes using only wordplay, palpable teamwork, and a seemingly effortless ability to create layered stories on the spot. Drawing on audience suggestions, the actors—many of whom have appeared alongside Conan O’Brien, Jon Stewart, and David Spade on TV screens and in collages made by school kids with weirdly advanced taste in comedy—build long-form pieces.

About Mayo Performing Arts Center
The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theater fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is on site to cultivate the next generation of performers.
