Aziz Ansari (Ulysses) @ UCB Theatre, NYC (by Edwina Hay)
Aziz Ansari

The Upright Citizens Brigade is exploring an opportunity to open an additional venue in the East Village and we can use your help. If you currently reside in the East Village and would be willing to support the effort please sign the petition linked below.

The Theatre is hoping to move into the Pioneer Theatre at Avenue A and 3rd Street, next to Two Boots Pizza. While we're still a long way from making this happen the first step is to see if we can get enough support from within the community. To continue offering the same brand of comedy at the same affordable prices we'll need to get a Beer/Wine license.

If you or anyone you know live within Community Board 3 (the area of NYC from the East River westward to 4th Avenue, and from 14th Street down to the Brooklyn Bridge) and support this effort please take a moment and sign the online petition, or stop by Two Boots this weekend and sign a live petition. If you do not live in the neighborhood, we appreciate your support but it will not be helpful to us for you to sign the petition.

Thank You and we appreciate your help and continued support,

Matt, Matt, Amy, Ian

UCB regular Aziz Ansari performs two shows at Comix this weekend (Friday and Saturday).

Dave Hill will be telling stories on January 30th as part of "The Shits of Our Lives".

Support this. Even if you don't like comedy, you'll be supporting an opposing tide to what's happening to that part of town.

seriously East Village residents! You know that they will host at least one thing you want to go to a year, and that one time you'll be able to walk there instead of trekking to Brooklyn or Chelsea.

I like to laugh but I don't like to drink and I don't like drunks.

I only like to laugh at dead people. Am I allowed to come?
