On a positive note, I figured out how to see an improv show at UCB after two attempts and one 15 minute "WTF? session" spent on their website figuring it all out. To see the Tuesday night show, here is what you need to know:
1. Make a reservation online. Reservations open up on the Wednesday before the show, which is the following Tuesday. Then follow the directions on the email they send you.I made a reservation for next week's Tuesday night "new harold" show. I have no idea if I write the paper that that will carry over to the December session (if I am even in NYC in December).
2. Show up to the show 30-45 minutes ahead of the show, and wait in a line outside. Every single human being in the line is 19 years old... except you.
3. If you do not make a reservation, you wait in the stand-by line. Show up 30-45 minutes for that, too. And, even tough you wait that long, you may not even get into the show.
4. The show is cash-only.
