The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC recently held auditions for its "Maude" sketch teams, and via mass email, let everyone know they'd decided to expand Maude nights on Mondays to include eight teams come January 2011.

Before you think this post is too NYC-centric, just remember this: the UCB's sketch teams already and continue to include writers and performers that you also can see wherever you have a TV on shows such as, oh, Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, as well as plenty of commercial advertisements.

Here are the new rosters, with notations as described from the UCB's mass email. Also note that several new teams have been given "starter names" straight out of Scooby-Doo. Welcome members of Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma!
