Special Features


Editorial Reviews

On the heels of their enormously popular TV show, the Upright Citizens Brigade (Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh) bring you ASSSSCAT! - an unparalleled improv comedy juggernaut. Beginning with a suggestion from the audience, a guest monologist tells a story that kicks off a series of high-octane improvised sketches. From medical marijuana to embarrassing sexual encounters, no topic is off limits to the renegade performers who have helped make ASSSSCAT! one of the longest running improv shows in the history of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars ASSSSCAT? March 29, 2008
By Todd
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I purchased this improv DVD for $10, I didn't have high hopes. Although I have always been a huge fan of UCB, most improv shows I've seen (like Who's Line) have been a lukewarm disappointment.


If you are a fan of the type of humor found on the regular seasons of Upright, you will love ASSSSCAT. I watched this with my skeptical girlfriend, and we were both rolling with laughter for two straight hours.

Have you ever asked yourself who cut the pizza with toilet scissors? Me either, but you will.

This is a bargain, and you owe it to yourself to check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Del Close would be proud April 27, 2008
Like the other reviewer, I too was skeptical, but for different reasons. I've seen ASSSCAT before and it's always been great, but I didn't know how well it would translate to video. That plus I'm more familiar with the New York crew and this ASSSSCAT show was filmed in Los Angeles. By the end of the DVD, though, any doubts I had were quashed. This is brilliant. Prepare to have the phrase "toilet scissors" enter your lexicon, the scene it appears in is one of the funniest things I have ever seen, read, or heard. I highly recommend this for fans of the UCB, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, late '80s/early '90s SNL, and so on. You'll never spend a measly $10 on something this good again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not at all like the name March 5, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the things on the DVD is an interview with the four members of the UCB from the Comedy Central series, in which they talk about, in part, the origin of the name ASSSSCAT!. Basically the name came about because the show they were doing was failing and was painful for both the improvisers and the audience. This DVD, however, is so funny from start to finish. Off the wall scenes, touching scenes, even a psychic moose. It's got it all. Also, if you are an improv nerd like me, the DVD is a must own for the commentary track on the main feature alone. They go through scene by scene and discuss the "rules" of improv and how they are following them or breaking them, as well as how and why they made the connections they did.

This really is a great DVD to own if you enjoy improv. Not quite the same experience as seeing it live, but as close as you can get from the comfort of your couch. Sooo good

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like improv buy Asssscat. July 14, 2008
If you have seen long form improv comedy before and know what to expect, ASSSCAT! is an incredible show. If you haven't and you're willing to give long form improv a fair shot, this is the best place to start; it's the funniest improv show I've ever seen. Matt Besser, Amy Poelher, and Sans are all involved. Need I say more? Poehler, by the way, never stuck out for me on SNL, on ASSSCAT! she's the sole woman performer-- and she's darn funny. For the curious, ASSSSCAT! features a guest monologist [Will Arnett and Kate Walsh among the more famous ones], whose story is then followed by a bunch of scenes. It's great improv, it's funny, and even your friends who like extremely mainstream comedy should be able to enjoy it.

If you are an improviser, if you teach improv, or if you are even vaguely interested in the techniques that are used in improvisation, order this DVD one-day shipping. Amazing. While there are interviews with the cast members, they're basically filled with only somewhat interesting stories and the answer to the question you'll soon be asking "why ASSSSCAT!?" [the short answer is that it's something Horatio said]. Anyway, the real gold, and I do mean absolute gold, is the very serious and technical commentary on the set by Besser, Walsh and Ian Roberts. The guys lament that they can't be funny, but what you get is far better: people who are hilarious explaining why they're hilarious. Absolutely must-have.

If you don't buy it mini Roger Federer may run up an orifice of yours. Yes, that's a reference you'll get later.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but a little disappointing. June 16, 2014
I watched all of UCB and whatever I can find from their team. But while there are some funny parts, lot's of it ends up being way too short and cut to be funny. Also, they got the leader guy from Reno 911 but he appears very noticeably nervous / stage frightened during the story telling portion. So you feel bad for him, and the story telling suffers pretty badly.

Certainly not reflective of their best work, but if you're looking to get every ounce of UCB you can, it's certainly apart of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Improv - Well worth the money August 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I love the people who buy this and then are totally confused as to what it is. One reviewer even wrote that this video had "horrible writing" in their review.

So, to start, I think it is important to stress that this is improvisational comedy. Nothing is written beforehand, it is all made up on the spot and inspired by suggestions from the audience. If after reading this review, and then buying and watching this video and then hearing the people on your TV say that it is all made up on the spot you feel like the writing is poor, you need to return you TV, Quit your job, and give up on life because you are way too dumb to be a part of society. If you liked Who's Line Is It Anyway?, or have seen the Groundlings, or UCB or been to SAK in Orlando then you know what improv is. Its funny, vulgar and great. If you are looking for a cohesive story or movie - this isn't the thing to get. If you just want to laugh, frop the 10 bucks and buckle in for a good time.
