The Mentors interview & performance in ASSSSCAT at UCBTLA

The Mentors will provide a fitting close to The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre's week long OFFENSIVE FEST in Los Angeles.

Sunday, July 2nd @ 7:30 the band will appear in the improv show ASSSSCAT and play a half hour set afterwards. The show is only $8.

OFFENSIVE FEST is a week long celebration/examination of offensive humor. In the spirit of Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, Redd Foxx, Bill Hicks and Moms Mabley, taboos will be shattered, stomachs will be turned, beliefs will be challenged and laughter will ring out. Come join the fun when the UCB Theatre, home for all things comedy in LA, takes on all things offensive.

What exactly is ASSSSCAT? Well, it starts with a group of improv comedians currently working in film and television taking the stage accompanied by a special guest monologist. Some guest monologists are talented celebrities, others are screwed up weirdoes. Either way, they usually have great stories to tell. We take a suggestion from the audience, then the show begins. The special guest shares off-the-cuff thoughts, feelings, and personal remembrances inspired by the suggestion. The improvisers in turn use this impromptu monologue as fodder for a series of high octane, balls-to-the-wall improvised sketches that have made this show one of the longest running improv shows in the history of the world.

Cast: Matt Besser (UCB), Ian Roberts (UCB), Matt Walsh (UCB), Sean Conroy (Crossballs), Andrew Daly (MADtv) and Andrew Secunda (Late Night with Conan O'Brien), plus special guest improvisers.
