Fancy Screen

This week Fancy Schmancy was looking for thier third victory as they went up against the combination of Chad Carter and Ben Schwartz as Kill Screen.

Kill Screen would win the coin toss and they chose to go 2nd that evening.

Fancy Schmancy came out and had one of their best shows.  Working as a collective group, they dominated with audience.

Kill Screen come out in the second half and worked the audience into a frenzy, using seamless transition in between scenes.

In the end the audience voted for Kill Screen and new champion.

Kill Screen will face their first challenger D2: The Might Ducks on April 8th at 11pm!

The Cagematch Concert!

On March 18th, Cagematch had a new champion in town and they were ready to fight.

The show started with Harrison talking about his love for Dog magazine and his shameless promotion for the UC Bar, in which he was hosting the following Friday. (Really? Is cagematch about cagematch, a fight to the final finish or for shamelessly promoting other shows at the UCB? (Doesn't Harrison write the blog? (maybe?)))  Harrison brought both teams out, first the challengers The Spaders, which is Josh Covitt and Jay Hathaway, a musical duo.  Then out came your new champions Fancy Schmancy, which we learned they feel fancy every day! and they deserve to, they're the champs!

The show proceeded with The Spaders hitting the stage first.  As a musical duo, they mix improvised acoustic guitar songs and improvised scene work, which meld together to form a 20 min killer set and by killer set I mean the audience loved it, not that they played songs from "The Killers" catalog.  The Spaders sang their hearts out and played their guitars until the buzzer on the
 clock buzzed.

Out stepped cagematch's new champions Fancy Schmancy, which stepped up to the plate, called
 their shot and delivered.  I wasn't sure if I was watching Fancy Schmancy or Babe Ruth, I shortly figured out I was watching Fancy Schmancy, mainly do to that fact that I don't think Babe Ruth was very fancy, and I don't think he did improv.  the audience laughed their way through Fancy Schmancy 20 mins.

The audience then went to the polls and voted, officials from the CA state improv board were brought in to observe the vote.  And still Champions Fancy Schmancy took the victory over The Spader, only to have to face Kill Screen the next Wednesday, which could turn out to be their toughest match yet.

New Power in Town!

Every week is exciting at the UCB Cagematch, but on Wednesday March 11th, Fiasco! would have to face their toughest, roughest, and strongest competition yet, they would have to face Fancy Schmancy.

Harrison, the cagematch host, started like normal by flying around the UCB Theatre on a broom stick and spouting Harry Potter reference in which he was the only one who seemed to know the reference.  Little did he know at the time, but Alex Fernie, Alex Berg, and Drew Difonzo Marks had given him a few false Harry Potter references.  If they were false or not, that would stop Harrison from acting like a little boy in wizard school.

Fancy Schmancy won the coin toss and decide to Firsty Schirmitz which is usually the slot that Fiasco like to go in, but this would force Fiasco to watch and then be the second team on stage.

It was time to get the show on the road, Fancy Schmancy came out with a full brunt force to the head.  After the first ten minutes is was obvious that they meant business schiness.  The clock hit the zero mark as Fancy keep the audience laughing in their seats.  Let's just say that their show was very fancy... you know fancy schmancy.

Fiasco! then came to defend their title and show just how you do a cagematch.  Fiasco! was a man short with Justin Michael in Greece eating gyros.  Unlike any other show Fiasco! came to play.  As they emerge as a band in their scenes, it was yet to be seen if they would go double platinum or not.

The audience voted as the two teams would jam.  The official cagematch polling committee had to recount the votes three times, it was so close.  It was so close that if we were in Florida, the committee wouldn't have known what to do. (It's never too late for a 2000 election joke)  The winner would win would be one vote.

... and your new cagematch champions are Fancy Schmancy!!!

Join us on March 18th as your new Champs take on the the improv musical duo "The Spaders"

Reservation are already sold out but come get in the stand by line and we will do our best to get you in to see the show.

Fiasco! Soar past Soaring Spirit

On March 4th, the current champs, Fiasco! took on one might giant only known as Soaring Spirit in the squared circle.

Fiasco! came out swing hard, with a trip to the amusement, but would this show be enough to concur Soaring Spirit?  Only time and the audience would tell.
Soaring Spirit came out started what some might call a power 20 as in the nex
t 20 mins are going to be all about improv power.  Starting with a wedding day and taking us where every it would lead, but Soaring Spirit brought it all back, so that the last scene was all about the same wedding couple.
Then the audience voted and a decision was made. The results, the white man had concurred the Indians once again aka Fiasco! concurred their challengers with one hand tied behind their backs.

Fiasco! is off to play Fancy Schmanzy on March 11th
