"If you want to see some of UCB's best, weirdest, funniest, craziest sketches - all you have to do is stay up until midnight. Trust: it's worth it." -LAist

How to Submit: 
On the day of the show, email [email protected] between 9am and 10am with your name and the approximate running time of your sketch included in the body of the email. Use the subject heading "Shabby Sign-Up."

If your sketch makes it into the show, you will receive an email response confirming that you are booked for the show. You should hopefully receive this response no later than 7pm on the night of the show.

Pertinent Info That You Would Do Well To Keep In Mind:

• ALL SKETCHES MUST BE FIVE MINUTES OR LESS AND CAN NOT CONTAIN ANY TECH CUES. This means no sound cues or special lighting cues -- only lights up at the beginning of the scene, and lights down at the end.

• Be honest about the running time! If you woefully underestimate the running time, it could affect your chances of being booked on future shows.

• There is no carryover, so if you don't get into the show one week, you must submit again for the next show.

• Submissions received before 9am or after 10am on the day of the show will not be considered. Sketches are chosen randomly from anything sent during that hour, with potential exceptions being made for sketches that are extremely short.
