Coming up next week: "Scrolling Ticker," my first show at UCB Theater. It's a standup show with a newfangled twist...Details:
SCROLLING TICKER WITH MATT RUBY
Standup comedy with live running commentary on the big screen! I invite a couple of funny comics to the UCB stage and type live color commentary while they perform. The result is lots of riffing, awkward/funny moments, and a unique night of standup.
