Read an excerpt from oral history of Upright Citizens Brigade

Posted By on Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 1:27 PM


Over at Vulture, you can check out an excerpt from "High-Status Characters: How the Upright Citizens Brigade Stormed a City, Started a Scene, and Changed Comedy Forever." As you might surmise from the title, the book (available now for $1.99 via Nook) concerns the improv comedy team that was founded by comedians Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh and Little Rock native Matt Besser.

The book, by Brian Raftery, is largely an oral history with observations and remembrances from such UCB alums as Ed Helms, Rob Corddry, Aubrey Plaza and many others. It's sure to be a goldmine for comedy nerds. And check it, ol' Besser's wearing a Razorbacks T shirt on the book's cover. He's a bigtime Hogs fan.
