FREE ADMISSION (first come, first served seats)
PLAN TO COME EARLY TO THE SHOW. WE WILL START RIGHT AT 9:30PM.
Parking: UCB offers valet parking for $5, or street parking. Please be careful walking to/from your cars. Consider ride-sharing or taking the Metro (closest Metro Station is Hollywood/Western) as parking will be difficult and valet will get full.
Pro tip: get there early! The show is free, with seating first come, first served.
Note: Scarlett Johansson will not be in attendance.
As I've said before, you have to respect the bold-ass trolling it takes to call your Asian American comedy show "Scarlett Johansson Presents..." And now we find ourselves at the opening of that blasted movie. As far as I'm concerned, the only place to be that night is UCB! For further info about the show, head over to Facebook.
