Looking Back at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade’s Early Years, NY Mag

It was the winter of 1999, and Amy Poehler was  in a grimy bathroom on West 22nd Street, pulling used condoms out of a  toilet. For three years, the 28-year-old Poehler and her fellow members  of the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe—Matt Besser, Matt Walsh,  and Ian Roberts—had been performing sketch and improv anywhere they  could. Now, thanks to Rudy ­Giuliani’s anti-porn crusade, they had their  own theater in a defunct strip club. “The women’s locker room was all  Prince mix tapes and bikinis,” Poehler remembers. “It was as if there’d  been a nuclear disaster and everyone had just turned into dust and left  all their shit behind.”
