Every Wednesday when the clock strikes 11 pm, The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre transforms into a post-apocolyptic wasteland; where the only form of entertainment is two improv teams fighting head-to-head to stay alive.

The tribal counsel of Thunderstruck takes it upon themselves every week to hand pick two improv teams to fight to their death.  Who will determine their fate? YOU. As the audience will cast their vote to determine who survives another week, and who will be banished back to the wastelands of Los Angeles for all eternity.

It’s more than just competitive improv. It is a fight to the death.  It... Is... THE CAGEMATCH!  

Hosted by THUNDERSTRUCK (Jonny Svarzbein, Ronnie Adrian, and Anais Fairweather)

"You're sure to have a glorious time watching a sampling of L.A.'s best improvisers sate the appetites of a laugh-hungry mob." -LA Weekly
