Theater sports

I went to go see some improv comedy last night. It was pretty good, but whenever I hear the term "theater sports", I can't but think about watching people beat the crap out of a mime. As a consequence, I'm always a little disappointed by the improv.

The best improv I have ever seen was when I saw the remaining three members of Upright Citizens Brigade with some of their friends do their improv stylio. If I remember correctly, the phrase "take a dump on her chest".

Oh God, I love the UCB. I heart them so much.

I'm regular dammit. I'm just not feeling the comment wittiness love lately.

I knew you were going to piss people off by dividing the links like that...

Lee Ann said...

If you ever get a chance to see Carlos Mencia at the comedy club...he is hilarious!

poof: UCB is both Upright Citizens Brigade and Unviersity of California at Berkeley.

brooke: Don't worry. When you get back to regular blogging, you'll be put into the regulars list.

booty: Both Kendra and Spinning Girl and even Brooke too split their links up (Brooke uses asterisks to mark certain blogs). The real reason I split them up though was to make it easier for me to keep track of which blogs I need to check every day.

lee ann: Carlos Mencia is funny, but unfortuantely, I associate negativity with him because his show replaced dave chappelle's on comedy central. and through no fault of mencia's own.

Brookelina said...

Silly boy! My asterisks are to mark the blogs that have been updated. Blogrolling does it automatically.

I guess I should be happy I haven't been dumped altogether. *sniff sniff*

We have Second City. Even though we're the Third City. If you count L.A. as a city. Which I don't.

Tits McGee said...

I like water sports.

Does that count?



I'm totally not serious.

Carlos Mencia makes my intestines angry. I think it's called a "visceral reaction." He's the worst thing to get a TV show since Beastmaster.

jiggs said...

brooke: silly girl! I can't believe you could even imagine me dumping you.

uebermilf: LA isn't a city. It's a state of mind.

tits: It totally cool if you like water polo and high diving.

miss more: hold on serpico. beastmaster is the best show in the history of television.

Übermilf said...

I don't like Carlos Mencia either, but I don't want to hurt Lee Ann's feelings.

GrandPooOfAwesome said...

i meant The Upright Citizens Brigade, but i'm sure the other UCB is awesome, 'specially cuz of you.

there are some UCB (the show) clips at YouTube and one full episode (Wu Tang).

Lee Ann said...

Ubermilf, thank you, that is really nice of you. It doesn't hurt my feelings that you don't like Mencia. He is not a comedian for everyone.

Jiggsy, are you saying I am a state of mind? Oh, you mean Los Angeles! ;) j/k.

I've only seen the show, no standup. The show is a cut-rate Chappelle Show, but that doesn't mean he can't be a good comedian. Two words: Bob Saget.

slappy said...

In other words, if he does horribly inappropriate jokes about the girls on Full House, he could still be pants-crapping funny.

jiggs said...

slappy: you are wise beyond your days.

Tumbleweed said...

I laughed at this...that is rare. he he, not really!
