Jake Curtis is a guy in London who took my 2-day harold intensive workshop and he drew up his notes into a neat page of his notebook. And it looked cool so I got a hi-res version from him which lives at my flickr page.
Featuring things I got from: Neil Casey (train to crazy town), Alex Fernie (What If?), Alex Berg (the hand thing) and a million UCB teachers/coaches.

I put this on my personal account but I think I maybe shoulda just put it here on the improv one.
Shannon O’Neill was teaching her “Suck My Dick” workshop next door, which is a fun crazy loud workshop so we would comment on that sometimes and that’s why it says “Suck My Dick Next Door” in these notes.



This is the coolest!

Purebred Breeders Sold Me A Sick Puppy Who Almost Died And Might Still Die

We got Harry on May 27th, and by the next day, he was dying.

He wasn’t eating. He wasn’t drinking. He wasn’t doing anything but coughing, gagging, and vomiting. We called BluePearl, an animal ER, and were told to bring him in immediately. They diagnosed him with severe infectious pneumonia,…

Fucking awful. Screw those guys big time. In 2014, 13K is no joke, kudos to Chris and his bf for sticking with Harry despite the steep expenses. Breeders like Purebred Breeders are taking advantage of people like Chris everyday it seems, please share and double-down on your research prior to purchasing a pup.

UCB Training Center Memories

iamachilles:

  • Before the W 30th St Training Center, some classes were held at the old W 23rd St UCB office which was above a Malibu Diner. There were two classrooms separated by a hallway. This “hallway” functioned as the “office.” So you had to literally walk through the office to get to your class.
  • There…

These memories are all so great! 

Maude Advice, Part 1: Submitting as a Writer

ariscott:

This will be a UCB-specific post, as the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre is where I’ve had my experience. But I hope a lot of what I write can be useful to anyone writing sketch comedy or submitting writing packets.

This is all based on my personal experience. I don’t work for UCB, I’m not a…

Brilliant advice care of @ariscott!! Very much looking forward to the remaining segments.

#DCM16 Rules

iamachilles:

  1. Hydrate.
  2. You MUST find time to shower, change clothes, and sleep. If you’re smart, you’ll find a way to do all three at the same time.
  3. It’s impossible to see everything. Pick out a few shows you don’t want to miss and then keep an open mind about the rest.
  4. Speaking of: See out-of-town…
