Upright Citizens Brigade presents ASSSSCAT

Sunday, March 13
8:00PM - 9:30PM

Esther's Follies
525 E 6th St


ASSSSCAT, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre's infamous improvised show, features true tales from celebrity guests and inspired scenes from some of the world’s most skilled performers.

For over a decade, ASSSSCAT has played to critical acclaim and sold out audiences in New York City and Los Angeles, making it one of the longest running improv shows in comedy history -- and 2016 marks its third annual appearance at SXSW Comedy.

With monologues from Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development, Search Party)!
