Liquid Courage


Liquid Courage is a Sketch show like no other.  Anyone can submit a sketch and perform it at this show.

Sketches will be picked on a first come first served basis. The show will run as long as sketches are presented.

Hosted by UCBTNY Maude Team Moriarty!


-It's open to all performers. Sign-up begins @ 10:30pm. It will end promptly @ 11:30pm so we can have a running order up decently before showtime.

-Pick up an LC form from the UCB box office and fill it out. Don't forget to give it back to the person in the box office, otherwise we'll have no clue that you submitted a sketch.

-One LC form per sketch. Attach your sketch to the LC form. We don't care if you staple it, paper clip it, or lick the sheets of paper together. Just make sure we have your sketch.

-Make sure your sketch is between 3 to 5 minutes long (meaning approx. 3 to 5 pages long). It will NOT be accepted if it's more than the allotted time limit.

-You can bring multiple sketches. Let's just be considerate so everyone gets to go on stage. We want to play fair so anyone who wants to put up a sketch will get the chance to do so with at least one sketch.

-Don't forget to cast your sketch before you come to The LC. You supply your own performers.

-And yes, to participate, it will cost you NOTHING!!! It's FREE!!!!
