Anonymous once said, "You get what you pay for." In regards to the McDonald's dollar menu, Anonymous was probably right, but he was dead wrong about the doubleheader improv show at the Upright Citizens Brigade: "Last Day of School" and "Convoy." For $5 at 11 p.m. on Thursdays you can see two of the most seasoned and reliably hilarious improv teams in town. "LDoS" improvises scenes based on audience text messages. "Convoy" asks for a one-word suggestion and wows audiences with the esoteric specificity of its scenes and the "juxtaposition of the fantastic and mundane," as member Alex Berg adroitly put it. "LDoS" members have written and performed on shows such as Saturday Night Live, Happy Endings, Comedy Bang Bang and Adult Swim's Newsreaders. You may recognize "Convoy's" trio of performers as the ingeniously helpful losers Swift, Blodget and Gunt from FX's short-lived Terriers. Who knows what this doubleheader of Hollywood's comedy elite could inspire in you? (Be sure to check website for exact schedule.)
