We’re doing a project where we ask people: what’s your UCB? We talked to Cathryn Mudon about Chris Gethard, ASSSSCAT, and doing experimental shows with Dreadnought.
LW: How’d you find UCB?
CM: I had some friends visiting in town and they were doing touristy things. I was working at J.Crew at the time and they were like, “Come meet us at this show! You camp outside on the sidewalk, we’ll get Chipotle and sit there for like three hours, but it’s super fun!” I was in such a grumpy mood after my shift and the last thing I wanted to do was go sit on the sidewalk, but I went.
That was May. I remember it because it was Fleet Week of 2007 and there were a bunch of naval officers everywhere. So we went and camped out for ASSSSCAT and got into the 9:30 show.
I had a lovely time chatting with Lauren Walters and Erin O’Brien of Magic Buttons for this interview. God bless them both for transcribing my wild and wooly ramblings.
I’ll be honest, I was HOPING there would be GIFs.
(I rarely do anything anymore without secretly, deep down, thinking “I hope someone makes a GIF of this.” Sad but true.)
This was one of my favorite episodes I’ve ever seen of any show, period. I thought it was brilliant. It did not hurt that MY GREAT FRIEND WAS ALSO IN IT!

These guys are the best and you will love their series!!!
These guys have made something beautiful and bizarre. I highly recommend going to this.
I love an out take and especially this one of #BenedictCumberbatch going up the staircase followed by his looming shadow #Sherlock #photography
