Storyline

Agents Adair, Antoine, Colby and Trotter both monitor and create chaos across the universe. The sketches you see throughout most of the show are different subjects being monitored. At the end of each episode all the sketches and characters come together into one final sketch. Besides all the sketches, they have other segments where the UCB Agents venture out with hidden cameras, and try to incorporate the content of their bizarre sketches into the real world.

Trivia

Each Season of UCB thus far has a running joke that culminates in the season's final episode. The skits will make passing reference to the running joke in each episode of that season. For example: the first season's running joke was the Titte Brothers, a fictional pair of performers. They appear in the last episode of the first season when they perform a charity concert for the Little Donny Foundation. The second season's joke was Supercool, a highly addictive sugar candy. The second season finale focused on the Supercool smuggling ring headed by the UCB. The third season's running joke was Pro Thunderball, a hyper-violent sport that combines football and baseball. The third season finale is a mock-documentary of the evolution of Pro Thunderball. See more »

Alderman: It's been an hour, and Leo still doesn't have any support for his plan to defeat God to avoid Armaggedon.
Leo: [carrying bags of letters] Look, look at all these letters! There's bags and bags of it, just like I was saying! Here, look!
Alderman: These are just random letters! Here's a letter from a boy in band camp, utility bill, super coupons!
Leo: The mail truck's full of them!
Alderman: This doesn't support anything, you've just robbed a mail truck!
Leo: Well, it just said there were letters.

Seriously f***ed up sketch comedy
27 November 2004 | by (virginia) – See all my reviews

An absolutely hilarious sketch comedy series that followed in the foot steps of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" and "Kids in the Hall" where being absurd is a large part of being funny. The show was smart, fresh and well written with a seamless conclusion at the end of each episode where all the sketches would come together. Unfortunately, the show was too funny for the average Comedy Central viewer (who worshiped stale fart jokes from "South Park") and it was canceled. Thanks to a large fan base season 1 was released in 2003, but Comedy Central (currently the home of 24/7 reruns of Mad-TV) has not mentioned any plans to release the following two seasons.
