UCB Long-Form Conversations
The UCB Theatre NY Podcast is your official source for news, information, and conversations about New York City's best alternative comedy theatre. Hosts John Frusciante (UCBTNY's Artistic Associate) and Will Hines (UCBTNY's Academic Supervisor), both longtime performers at the theatre, bring their lovely dulcet tones and an insight honed by many years of obsessive comedy geekery to their interviews with the best improvisers, sketch comedy performers, and stand-up comics working at the UCB Theatre. Each episode also features a review of the weeks' shows you need to see and lively discussions by Will and John that give insight into the lives and thoughts of improvisers and comics at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. There also might be a fistfight. There hasn't been one yet, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.

We return for Season 2 of our podcast! Our guest is Matt Besser, co-founder of the UCB Theatre to discuss the newly-published UCB Comedy Improvisation Manual. The book has been available for just over a week at the time we recorded this podcast and John and Will talk with Matt about: the goals of the book, how it came about, the process of writing it and what we think it brings to the table of improv theory.
