Family Matters

Before you sit down with your loved ones on Turkey Day and thank the pharmaceuticals for helping you stay sane, consider finding solace in another, equally dysfunctional family at Upright Citizens Brigade's Thanksgiving Feast Show. Through improvisation, the cast of Suzi Barrett, Alex Berg, Julie Brister, Neil Campbell, Todd Fasen, Drew DiFonzo Marks, Alex Fernie and Deborah Tarica will demonstrate how holiday gatherings sometimes are harder to get through than the mall on Black Friday. The uptight mom, sullen Goth daughter, crazy uncle, lonely neighbor, uninvited strays -- they'll probably all be there. Past shows have included fist fights, food fights, even a gun. So who knows? This year, someone might come out of the closet while waving a pistol. In this season of giving, the theater will provide food for audience members, but don't sit too close to the stage, unless you wanna get a leg to the forehead. UCB Theater, 5919 Franklin Ave., Hlywd.; Wed., Nov. 27, 8 p.m.; $5. (818) 908-8702,
Wed., Nov. 27, 8 p.m., 2013
