- •FULL OF IT: The Bullshit ShowMonday, January 18th at 8:30pm @ UCB Sunset. A new panel-game show which proves that truth is stranger than other things that also seem true. A rotating cast of brilliant and available improvisors deliver mind-expanding speeches on subjects ranging from The Simpsons and Donald Trump to Ancient Egypt and the Modern Chicken. These lectures, however, are almost entirely bullshit. Can you spot the ludicrous truth amongst the ridiculous lies?
- •Unrepped! A Showcase of Raw TalentTuesday, January 19th at 9:30pm @ UCB Franklin. Seventy-five minutes of the best sketches from UCB performers and writers who don't have representation! You've seen these folks all over television and film. Heck, they're doing it without you, agents! May as well sign them and make some CA$$$HOLA!
- •My DiaryWednesday, January 20th at 7pm @ UCB Sunset. Have you ever wanted to know what's in the diaries of your favorite comedians? Well now you will. And you'll regret it. If you want to hear salacious, emotionally fraught, hilariously horrible moments from our diaries, this show is for you. My Diary is the show where comedians reveal their most private moments publicly. Heaven help us all.
- •Women of Maude ShowcaseThursday, January 21st at 9:30pm @ UCB Franklin. Nearly fifty percent of the performers on our house sketch and improv teams are female. And one hundred percent of them are hilarious. Join all of the women of Maude Night for a night of hilarious sketch comedy.
- •Murderer's RowFriday, January 22nd at midnight @ UCB Franklin. Murderer's Row is the game show that asks the question: which of history's most famous killers is the absolute worst? Three iconic murderers will compete in a series of games to see which of them has the creepiest criminal record, spookiest origin story and, of course, highest body count. If you like high stakes game shows and spending your free time reading the Wikipedia pages of serial killers, this is the show for you!
- •Rock and Roll NightSaturday, January 23rd at 10:30pm @ UCB Sunset. Come on out for a night of music with two bands that just wanna party down. We're gonna blow the roof off this place! -Every member of both bands THE SLOPPY BOYS JANGLY BAND is a rock 'n' roll band that plays rock 'n' roll covers. (Mike Hanford, Jeff Dutton and Tim Kalpakis, The Birthday Boys) DON'T STOP OR WE'LL DIE is a smoking hot piano-pop combo featuring Michael Cassady and Paul Rust.
