According to Jamar Galbreath, program adviser for the UC Student Involvement Network, the performers are the “next wave” of comedy superstars from the theatre that has produced some of the biggest stars in comedy today. From “Saturday Night Live” to “The Office,” the tour includes some of the most talented comedians and some of the funniest writers of the “Colbert Report,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “MAD TV.” Upright Citizens Brigade alums also have starred on the big screen in films including “Bridesmaids,” “Mean Girls,” “The Hangover” and more.
