Inaugural Indie Cage Match: 7:30 PM, Sunday, November 6th - UCB East

Come one, come all to our exciting inaugural show where three super hilarious indie improv teams face off against one another in a battle to the funniest. It’s all happening Sunday, November 6th, 7:30 PM at UCB East, the Beast.

But wait, there’s more. For the first time ever in an NYC Cage Match, the Really Cool Co-hosts (almost always Ryan and Amey), and the exciting and always different Distinguished Panel (comprised of a Comedy Vet and an Indie Darling) will decide 3 / 5 of the vote, while the audience will decide 2 / 5 of the vote for each show. If a team wins 3 times in a row they will automatically be awarded a spot in Cage Match NYC, and retired from Indie Cage Match for the season.

Check out the complete rules in the panel above.

Our Really Cool Co-hosts

Amey Goerlich & Ryan Karels meet each other in their Level 1 UCB class in 2001 and quickly formed the legendery UCB Indie improv team KROMPF with Neil Casey and Joe Wengert.  They come to you as Radio Rouge and indie representative for Indie Cage Match at UCB East every week.
