Sketch Comedy Groups Reunite

Three of the best sketch comedy groups of the last 15 years are reuniting... sort of.

It was recently reported that the Upright Citizens Brigade inked a deal with NBC Universal to develop new shows. The originalUCB show on Comedy Central featured Amy Poelher, Matt Besser, Matt Walsh and Ian Roberts. The group originally formed in Chicago and feature more members including 2004 AFF Panelist Adam McKay.

Members of The State split up after their Mtv show went off the air (not before performing their last live show together at the now defunct Big Stinkin' Improv Fest in Austin). They all went their sperate ways, some stayed in New York and went on to create Stella and Wet Hot American Summer, and others went on LA and created Viva Variety and now Reno: 911! on Comedy Central. Now, the entire cast has reunited for one scene in the new Reno feature film, Reno 911!: Miami.

Finally, The Kids in the Hall, are getting together for a few apperances and a potential new tour, but no word on another film.
