The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre has cranked out more and more material as the years have gone by, and there hasn't always been enough stage time to go around. Finally, the UCB's success has afforded it the opportunity to open a second New York City venue, this one in the old home of the Two Boots Pioneer Theater. Much of the talent at this cozier venue overlaps with the Chelsea location, and there's still some improv and sketch comedy—but this outpost focuses more on stand-up, storytelling and variety shows.
