UCB's long-running weekly improv show featuring homegrown teams at the top of their game performing, you guessed it, The Harold.
What Are Harold Teams?
Harold Teams perform the improv form known as the Harold. Team members are graduates of the UCB improv program who have also made it through a highly competitive audition process.
Each improviser on Harold Night supports their teammates via the shared language of UCB's "game of the scene," while continuing to boldly hone their own unique comedic voice as a performer and collaborator.
Harold Team Eligibility
Students who complete UCB's Improv 401 are eligible to attend our yearly Harold Team auditions.
As a team member, you are expected to perform at a high level and demonstrate commitment to improving, but you are NOT expected to be perfect. Harold Teams will be assigned a UCB-paid coach and are expected to rehearse approximately once a week with their coaches. Team members must show they are open to notes from their coach and the Artistic Directors, and be willing to work at implementing those notes.
Harold and Lloyd Teams will be cast from the same audition, and eligibility is the same for both.
