thank god it's good
1 August 2006 | by vladistheman27See all my reviews

I frequent the UCB Theatre and the other day I finally got to see the UCB 4 together for the first time. They are amazing. I am so happy that this show is doing well and I love MATT WALSH (he's my favorite of the 4).

The most important thing that you have to remember about the show is that ALL, let me repeat that, ALL of the dialog is IMPROVISED. Every scene has its goals but the show is 90% improv. The comedy is quick and SMART, instead of Dane Cook crap. This is comedy at its best.

The show provides a nice change from other Comedy Central shows (ie. Blue Collar TV) and is probably most similar to Reno 911 (i'm not sure if that is improvised).

Don't CANCEL THIS COMEDY CENTRAL!!!
