AirWolf: Let’s Go Back to Your Place
What's the worst living experience you've ever had?
Was it that haunted apartment you found through Craigslist? What about the time in college when your roommate always watched you sleep? Or maybe it was that year you lived on a hippie commune in the middle of the desert?
Airwolf takes your hellish tales of crazy roommates, weird neighbors and other outrageous living situations and spins them into a fast, funny and fully improvised show. Please label your food if you don't want us to eat it. Members of Upright Citizens Brigade’s Airwolf have appeared on The Colbert Report, ESPN, Comedy Central, The Onion News Network, Nickelodeon, and Adult Swim, among many others.

Cats Hugging Cats
This five person improv group finds the comedy in the mundane. Scenes start out normally but soon become ticking time bombs of insane hilarity. A show may start out with a scene about a parent teacher conference or a board meeting, but by the end chickens have risen up and taken over the world and cavemen file class action lawsuits. If that is not enough — everyone in the show is totally hot as shit.
"Cats Hugging Cats is a powerhouse of an act." - Charleston City Paper
"Cats, long form improv with a healthy sprinkle of absurdity, is an exercise in finding commonplace. The point is that they do it exceedingly well." - Charleston City Paper
"...a solid comedic team." - Charleston City Paper

Big Bang
Big Bang is fast-paced free-form show features some of the top alumni from the ImprovBoston Mainstage and Boston comedy scene. The entire set moves seamlessly from one scene to the next at the rate of over a scene a minute all following the group play philosophy of "follow the funny". The show builds rapidly and culminates in a series of surprising and organic callbacks done through the unique editing styling and story telling of this Boston super-team.
