EP. UCB3 — Bonus: Ask The UCB 3

Matt Besser answers some of your questions in another edition of Ask the UCB! Matt elaborates on his comparison of independent improv shows to stand-up open mics, talks about how the UCB Comedy Improv Manual is helpful in writing comedy, shares what he really thinks about “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” discusses an improv school that brags about not focusing on the “rules of improvisation,” and gives a couple of book recommendations. You can now get the UCB Comedy Improv Manual, Matt Besser’s new comedy album at, and Dragoon’s new album at!
