Chicago-born, Matt Walsh is a founding member of the national improv-sketch comedy theatre Upright Citizens Brigade, which has schools and venues in both New York and Los Angeles. UCB is the largest unaccredited university in the nation teaching improv performance and sketch writing technique. A graduate of Chicago’s ImprovOlympic, Walsh was instructed by the legendary comedy sage Del Close, whose pupils included John Belushi, Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Mike Myers among many others. Walsh co-founded the Upright Citizens Brigade improv troupe with Amy Poehler, Matt Besser and Ian Roberts in Chicago in 1991. During the group’s performances in New York, Comedy Central had their pulse on the foursome and aired their sketch-improv show The Upright Citizens Brigade for three seasons from 1998-2000.
