How CageMatch is Booked
February 1, 2015
CageMatch is booked by Charlie Todd on a month to month basis. All UCB house improv teams are booked as well as regularly occurring house improv shows. Teams that win 3 Indie CageMatches are booked. In the fall at the end of the season, there are usually 2-4 slots open. These slots are generally filled with teams that had good seasons the year prior but were not automatically booked (and are still existing, active teams) or with other active, established teams who people tell Charlie deserve a CageMatch, usually in the backroom of McManus in the fall.
