Ian Roberts

Ian Roberts

Ian Roberts is one of the four original members of the Upright Citizens Brigade. You might know him as the Bluth’s doctor in many episodes of Arrested Development, or as the heart-attack prone Sergeant Declan on Reno 911. If you’re like me, you didn’t know until recently that he was the choreographer teaching the proper technique of spirit fingers in Bring It On. You can find him staying true to his improv roots every week in Asssscat at the Los Angeles UCB Theatre.
