The Upright Citizen’s Brigade Training Center is coming to the UK! We’ve loved our time flying to New York and studying at a world class improv comedy school and thought we’d bring some of that back to London.
This isn’t just a workshop – this the chance to get a full level one with the UCB Training Center, from the comfort of London.
We’re running a week long intensive from November 16th-20th 2015. Classes are £399.
