Upright Citizens Brigade (307 W. 26th St., Manhattan)
$10 7:30pm show (must purchase tickets online)
Free 9:30pm show (tickets distributed at 8:15pm – get in line early)
The Upright Citizens Brigade performs longform improv with possible special guests from Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
ASSSSCAT 3000 is one of the best improv shows you can see in the city, but waiting in line for hours before the show to get your tickets is a bit of a drag. However, not as many people come out for it on Super Bowl Sunday. A few years ago, a couple friends and I were able to catch Amy Poehler and Horatio Sanz here for free instead of watching the game. Not really into football? I suggest you do the same.
