UCBTNY

bibbymoynihan: When I was a kid would tape the audio of SNL of the TV and listen to it on the bus. At the 40th I was the Land Shark. I remember watching the Mothers Day Special and seeing Chris Farley and his Mom and saying to my Mom “Maybe one day we will do that?”. Two years ago she stood next to Reese Witherspoon and I on home base. 9 years and 193 episodes ago I met Lorne Michaels and some of the most amazingly kind and talented people in the world. Last night, Kenan Thompson, Tom Hanks and Alec Baldwin and Pete Davidson carried me off that stage for the last time as a cast member. The fifth longest cast member of all time. I’m very proud of that and my time there. I am a huge fan of SNL. Always have. Always will be. Endless thanks to the best and most hard working cast and crew in television. I love them so much it’s stupid. So glad I got to share a final episode with friends @vanessabayer and @thesheertruth Thanks to @ucbtny Without you I would not feel like the luckiest boy in the world today. Thanks @nbcsnl I will miss you more than you know. Thank you for all the kind words. I’m gonna live for ev…..

Where Your Favorite Comics Came From

In 1996, Chicago comics Amy Poehler, Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, and Matt Walsh established the best-known incarnation of the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy group, whose loose, eclectic style has informed the last decade of “smart” sitcoms

Our first ever #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) is Amy Poehler!

You might know Amy from her starring role in Parks and Rec, from movies like Baby Mama, from Saturday Night Live, from hosting (and winning!) the Golden Globes, or from her groundbreaking turn as a Young Liz Lemon. But did you know that Amy was one of the founding four members of the Upright Citizens Brigade? 

In other words, she’s the FLOUCB! (Get it? maybe?…First Lady of UCB, come on, people…)  

Not only is Amy Poehler an extremely influential member of the comedy world, but she is also a role model, starting her own site and Youtube channel “Smart Girls at the Party.”  Starting tonight, she will be adding “producer-of-a-hit-Comedy-Central-show” to her list of accomplishments when Broad City premieres!  

Click here to see Amy and lots of other UCB talents in this behind-the-scenes look at Asssscat from UCB Comedy!

Check out Amy’s UCB Page: http://ucbcomedy.com/user/2186

In other words, we love Amy Poehler and that’s why she is our first #WCW!

The thing we’re forgetting in the Game of Thrones spoiler debate is that many of the show’s scenes look like music videos for Creed.
