The Upright Citizens Brigade is thrilled to announce that in-person classes will be returning soon!

Beginning in mid-July, we will resume in-person classes in Los Angeles with the first round of registrations opening today! The Franklin Theater will also reopen in September with programming decisions made by a new three-person artistic committee being assembled.

The New York operation will follow Los Angeles by a couple of months with in-person classes beginning in the fall and a theater reopening thereafter. More information on the New York details will be shared in the coming months, so stay tuned!

Reopening our doors will include additional safety protocols and staff training for a safe and equitable workspace and include Covid-19 best practices: Proof of vaccination and booster will be required for in-person classes. UCB is committed to making a safe environment for all students and staff and will follow all city, county, and state COVID-19 safety protocols.



The Sunset Training Center facility closed in 2020, so classes will be held at different, temporary venues around LA until we can open a more permanent facility.


SNL Scholarship

Along with reopening, we are excited to announce that we are accepting submissions for the SNL Scholarship. More information on what it entails and how to apply can be found here.


New Enrollment System

Please note that we have launched a new enrollment system for registering for classes. If you have not taken a class since May 4th, 2022, you will need to create a new account to enroll. More information on that can be found here.
