The Smokes are Blue

Ladies and Gentlemen filled into the seats as two amazing improv teams got ready to hit the big leagues on the UCB stage. Returning champions "The Smokes" have had the title for one week, but their Challengers "Blue" were going to put up a fierce battle against the new champions. Their fate would be determined in a 20 min improv battle to the death. The death panels aka the audience has been assembled, it was show time.

After losing the coin toss Blue would be up first. Blue is made of a tripod of people, three to be exact. Blue was ready for a fight and fight they did. They even used their timeout, which has not been used in many months, during their timeout, Jake Regal decide to take his pants off in order to cool down the hot stage. The time quickly came to an end.

During the halt time switch, the very popular half time game "Where's Waldo" made a triumphant return as Harrison scanned the audience look for exiled Waldo.

The Smokes hit the stage and pulled out their form for the night called "Sleepover" from a bucket. Starting in a sleep over they improvised til their hearts stoo. With a combined total of 7 members they made improv look easy. Would The Smokes be looking at win number 2 or would they be packing their bags, it would be up to luggage department aka the audience.

With buzzer buzzed on both teams, it meant it was time for the audience to go to the polls and vote aka tear a piece of paper and put it in a bucket. After all votes were counted, The Smokes were declared UCB Cagematch champs for the second week in a room.

Next week The Smokes will face Bay Bay, be sure to make your reservation for next Wednesday at the UCB Cagematch.

Also The Smokes will be doing a show at UCB this Saturday at 10pm, make your reservations here.

Pouffff a new Champion!

The streams were raging, the fires were burning, and eagles were soaring, the perfect conditions for a cagematch. Benderdangle on a hot streak, but would it be enough to stop the ole mighty challengers, The Smokes? Only time would tell and that time would 20 minutes a piece in the squared circle.

The Smokes went first, which is nothing new to them, they are usually the first on the stage on Monday nights at UCB. They know how to get a crowd going. They allowed the audience to pick the form they would be doing. the audience filled out ballots ahead of time and The Smokes picked it on stage. "Three Davids" is what they picked and "three david" is what the audience got! The buzzer ended their twenty min "three david" set.

Then it was time for Benderdangle to hit the stage and do what they do best... improv! Playing like they normally do Benderdangle was hitting hard that night. Tonight they were facing some of their toughest competition yet and would they be able to beat their challengers only the audience would be able to determine that.

... and determine that they did. So after two teams the audience voted and that night they voted for a new winner, The Smokes.

The Smokes will be back this Wednesday versus Blue, which will be just as tough of match as this one was. It's anyone's game now!

Make your reservations here for Cagematch this week. If the show is sold-out, no worries get your name on the waitlist and there is a very good chance you will be able to get in. So be there!
