America's Best Comedy Clubs: Upright Citizens Brigade

Francine Daveta

Upright Citizens Brigade, New York City

Having brought “Chicago-style” long-form sketch comedy to New York in 1996, the UCB is now an institution, delivering some of the country’s most innovative writing nightly. It also happens to be one of the city’s most affordable entertainment options. Tickets to shows at its 152-seat theater in Chelsea top out at $15. Often they’re free, as for Asssscat 3000, a 15-year tradition, made famous by Amy Poehler, that brings in celebrity guests and improv veterans for spur-of-the-moment, one-night-only acts. ucbtheatre.com
