On today's episode, we talk to Ian Roberts. As one of the
founding members of the Upright Citizens Brigade, Ian has been a
strong comedic force for over two decades. Beyond the sketch show
and the three theatres that bear the UCB name, Ian has been a part
of many fantastic films and shows. He co-wrote and starred in the
film Martin and Orloff, he was featured in the final
season of Reno 911!, and he currently executive produces
and writes on the Comedy Central show Key and Peele. At
the end of July, we sat down with Ian in the Hot Chicks Room (the
bar attached to UCB East) during the Del Close Marathon, and
basically took a master class in comedy. In this episode, learn how
Ian began doing improv, how anger and acting connect and about
doing what you love and committing earnestly to it.
