Upright Citizens Brigade: The Complete Third Season
Running for three season from 1998 to 2000, The Upright Citizens Brigade, on Comedy Central, helped launch Amy Poehler’s and Horatio Sanz’s SNL careers as well as the opening of three like-named theaters in New York and Hollywood. Up until now only the first two seasons were available on DVD, and this week, you should pick up the third. For those who aren’t familiar, The Upright Citizens Brigade isn’t your regular sketch comedy show. It’s centered around an organization with no government ties dedicated to causing chaos. For the first two seasons, the group operated out of an underground base, but after a DEA raid, The Upright Citizens Brigade was forced to operate out of a bakery delivery truck this season. The Brigade often take their bizarre sketches into the real world as well, with hidden camera pranks. You can pre-order the third season, available June 26, on DVD here.
