Preparation #1: Signing up for a class at the UCB

I can’t quite believe it, but I leave for New York City on Saturday. I’m slightly terrified but also extremely excited. After all, some of my best friends are waiting for me with open arms, and we’ll be celebrating my 23rd birthday the night I get there. It’s a good way to start my two months in the city.

I haven’t started packing or shopping for new clothes yet, but I’ve been preparing for my summer in other ways. I decided I wanted to take complete advantage of my time in NYC, so I signed up for an improv class at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.


The UCB is a place where you can see an improv comedy show for $5 or $10, and famous comedians regularly appear there. I went to one show in November, and Chevy Chase showed up. Quite a few people from 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live have performed there, so it’s a pretty quality place. The UCB offers sketch-writing classes too. If one of those opens up, I might switch over and drop the improv class. But the more I think about it, the more I think I should take the class that scares me more, which is definitely improv.
