Must Do: Upright Citizens Brigade


The Los Angeles Training Center of the UCB is like a finishing school for funny people. (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are Chicago alums.) Time spent
here will sharpen your wit, open your mind, and make you understand why comedians are nuts.

How to do it: For $400, amateurs receive a comedy crash course: eight three-hour sessions with the UCB’s improv masters, plus a performance to showcase your “Yes, and…” abilities.
