Last Minute Ticket Giveaway: UCB’s Ultimate Comedy Bash, Solvang, Oct 10


UCB’s Ultimate Comedy Bash @ Maverick Saloon, Santa Ynez (Fresh Faces night) Fri Oct 9
UCB’s Ultimate Comedy Bash @ Solvang Festival Theater, Solvang (Dual matinee shows) Sat Oct 10

Attention, comedy fans and denizens of Los Angeles at large: LA’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre is taking over the Solvang area this weekend, and we have a fun getaway in store for you at this time:

  • You’ll travel up to Solvang on Saturday (on your own dime)
  • Maybe you will enjoy some local grape (on your own dime)
  • You might enjoy a bit of food (again, on your own dime)
  • And then you will laugh! (On our dime)

The laugh will most likely be caused by something witnessed or heard during the back-to-back afternoon UCB Theatre shows you will waltz into, free of charge, up in old Solvang. Following this laugh, whether or not you stay in Solvang, journey farther north to The Madonna Inn, get sidetracked by a steaming bowl of pea soup in Buellton, stop in at the Hitching Post for a glass of red with Thomas Haden Church or end up at Neverland…well, those are all options once you find yourself north of Santa Barbara. Good luck and may you return in one piece.
