Ian Roberts

Ian RobertsIan Roberts began his improvisation studies with Del Close at the iO Theater (formerly known as the ‘ImprovOlympic’)  and The Second City. While at iO, Ian played on the improv team ‘Corky’s Callback’ and the legendary team, ‘The Family’, which was coached by Del Close for a while.

Along with other iO alumns, Ian helped found the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), a sketch comedy group whose eponymous show ran for three seasons on Comedy Central in the late ’90s.

Roberts and the other members of the UCB currently operate theaters in New York City and Los Angeles that have become the premier venues for alternative comedy on the two coasts.
